Wearable NFC patch launched
14.04.2016 - 23:52
MC10, a US based healthcare technology company, has joined with design and manufacturing specialist PCH to commercialise the former’s Wearable Interactive Stamp Platform (WiSP). WISP, which is worn on the skin, is a stretchable and disposable stamp which is said to be just 0.05mm thick. When paired with a smartphone, tablet or NFC reade...
Leti, Qualcomm extend stacking technology deal
14.04.2016 - 23:44
French research institute Leti has extended its collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies under which the partners were developing CoolCube, the former’s sequential integration technology. Created by Leti as a way of creating high density, high performance circuits, CoolCube is said to eliminate the need for through silicon vias – ...
Slump in semiconductor revenues
14.04.2016 - 23:40
A report from market analyst IHS says demand for seniconductors fell in 2015 and could herald three years of weak growth. Sequential quarterly growth was weak throughout every quarter of 2015, especially in the first quarter, when the market declined 8.9% over the previous quarter. That drop represented the deepest sequential quarterly decline s...
h-BN helps Li-ion battery run at 150°C
14.04.2016 - 23:34
A combined electrolyte and separator for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries developed at Rice University in the US supplies energy at usable voltages and in high temperatures. An essential part of the non flammable, toothpaste-like composite is hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), also known as ‘white graphene’. The team, led by materi...
Single stage process for touchscreen manufacture
11.04.2016 - 23:46
Research scientists at the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (INM) have developed a single stage process that allows conductive paths just a few microns wide to be created on carrier materials such as glass and flexible foils. Previously, says the team, manufacturing conductive paths was a time consuming process using several steps. The team b...
Quantum dots for better optoelectronic devices
11.04.2016 - 23:40
Harnessing solar power is said by researchers to require a material that not only absorbs light efficiently, but which also converts the energy to highly mobile electrical current. Looking to find this ‘ideal mix’ in a single material is a challenge, so scientists have been experimenting with ways to ‘hybrids’. Scienti...
Transistors made entirely of nanocrystal 'inks'
11.04.2016 - 23:33
Engineers from the University of Pennsylvania claim to have developed an approach for making transistors by sequentially depositing their components in the form of liquid nanocrystal ‘inks’. The researchers began by taking nanocrystals, or roughly spherical nanoscale particles, with the electrical qualities necessary for a transis...
