Coherent backplane IP boosted
28.09.2016 - 23:11
ARM has launched the third generation of its coherent backplane technology which it says has been optimised for next generation intelligent connected systems, including 5G networks and industrial systems. Between them, the CoreLink CMN-600 coherent mesh network and DMC-620 dynamic memory controller are said to improve data throughput by a fac...
Memristors could play central role in bioelectronics, says team
28.09.2016 - 23:06
Research led by the University of Southampton claims that memristors could enable the development of implants that use electrical signals from the brain to help treat medical conditions. In a study published in Nature Communications, the researchers showed that memristors could provide real time processing of neuronal signals, leading to effi...
Power management IC targets more effective energy harvesting
28.09.2016 - 23:00
e-peas, a start-up based in Liege, has announced the commercial availability of its first low power IC - the AEM10940. The chip looks to maximize the efficiency with which electronic hardware scavenges or draws energy from the ambient environment. Highly integrated the AEM10940 has a 94% power boost converter, along with voltage reference, en...
Graphene based quantum LEDs emit single photons
26.09.2016 - 22:29
Researchers from the Graphene Flagship have used layered materials to create all electrical quantum LEDs which can emit single photons. The devices are said to have the potential to act as on chip photon sources in quantum information applications. The LEDs are constructed of thin layers of different materials, stacked to form a heterostructu...
