Printable device for sensor-laden robot skin
27.03.2017 - 23:30
To demonstrate flexible, printable electronics that combine sensors and processing circuitry, MIT researchers have designed and built a device that responds to mechanical stresses by changing the colour of a spot on its surface. According to the research team, covering a robot or plane with sensors will require a technology that is both flexi...
Arrow Electronics unveils FPGA IoT Maker Board
25.03.2017 - 23:56
Global distributor Arrow Electronics is making available a FPGA IoT Maker Board. Designed for end-to-end application development and optimised for cost, the MAX1000 board can be installed directly into a custom application or integrated on to a separate board Intended for use by start-ups, universities or established equipment manufacturers w...
Improved bandwidth for disordered antennas
25.03.2017 - 23:51
A research group from Korea’s Institute of Basic Science has devised a disordered arrangement for antennas, which is said to minimise redundancy and to enable each antenna to function independently. As a result, the device is said to provide 40 times wider bandwidth than periodically arranged antennas. "We are proposing a new way t...
Flexible sensor holds potential for foldable touch screens
19.03.2017 - 23:19
A sensor developed at the University of British Columbia (UBC) could help make advanced transparent and stretchable devices a reality. The sensor uses a highly conductive gel sandwiched between layers of silicone. This allows different types of touch to be detected, including swiping and tapping, even when it is stretched, folded or bent....
Batteries could power and cool chips, say Zurich researchers
19.03.2017 - 23:15
Chip stacks could be supplied with electrical power by integrated flow batteries and cooled at the same time, according to research undertaken by ETH Zurich and IBM Research Zurich. In flow batteries, electricity is produced by an electrochemical reaction between two liquid electrolytes which are pumped into the battery cell through a closed ...
Bosch, NVIDIA look to AI for autonomous vehicles
19.03.2017 - 22:52
Bosch and NVIDIA are collaborating to develop artificial intelligence self-driving systems targeted at mass market cars. The system, which will be built on NVIDIA’s deep learning software and hardware, is intended to enable vehicles to be trained on the complexities of driving, operated autonomously and updated over the air with new featur...

Lynx Software Technologies has demonstrated its LynxSecure Separation Kernel hypervisor on the Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC at Embedded World. It is the first view of LynxSecure on an ARM Cortex A-53 processor and is, according to the company, a significant milestone for designers of ARM-based automotive, avionics, industrial and medical device...
Embedded World 2017 - Ultra-low power MCU offer significant power savings
19.03.2017 - 22:43
Analog Devices has unveiled an ultra low power microcontroller unit (MCU) that looks to address the growing need for embedding advanced algorithms while consuming the lowest system power at Internet of Things (IoT) edge nodes. The ADuCM4050 MCU includes an ARM Cortex-M4 core with floating-point unit, expanded SRAM, and embedded flash memory i...
First mass produced graphene based biosensor claimed
09.03.2017 - 23:33
US company Nanomedical Diagnostics has worked with MEMS foundry Rogue Valley Microdevices to deliver what is said to be the first mass produced graphene based biosensor. Called the AGILE R100, the benchtop device is designed to provide biophysical data to pharmaceutical and biotherapeutics companies seeking more informed decisions earlier in ...
