Researchers from the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (INM) have developed nanoparticle inks featuring transparent, conductive oxides (TCOs) and claim the transparent lines and patterns, which can be created by direct gravure printing on thin plastic foils remain electrically conductive even after bending. According to the team, conductive...
CUI and VPS partner to develop a more intelligent, efficient data centre infrastructure
20.01.2016 - 23:26
CUI has announced a partnership with Virtual Power Systems (VPS) to set a new standard for an efficient power infrastructure for data centres. In this agreement, CUI will design, manufacture and distribute the hardware component of the ICE (Intelligent Control of Energy) system, said to be the only solution for intelligent power utilisation a...
Sensors can also increase a vehicle’s fuel efficiency
20.01.2016 - 23:23
Continental says that its electronic horizon (eHorizon) sensor system can play just as important a role in vehicle fuel efficiency as the properties of the engine, weight and aerodynamics. Based on high-precision topographic trip data and a GPS signal, the eHorizon supplies a three-dimensional profile of the route ahead to the Adaptive Cruise...
World’s first large area fingerprint and vein sensor on plastic
20.01.2016 - 23:17
FlexEnable and ISORG, specialists in flexible organic electronics and organic photodetectors and large area image sensors in printed electronics respectively, have unveiled the world’s first large area flexible fingerprint sensor on plastic designed for biometric applications. With a thickness of 0.03cm, an 8.6 x 8.6cm active area, 84&m...
SRAM compiler launched for 28nm FD-SOI based SoCs
20.01.2016 - 23:15
Following the launch in 2015 of embedded SRAM IP for 28nm fully depleted silicon on insulator (FD-SOI) process technology, Sheffield based sureCore has now unveiled a memory compiler for the process. The compiler is said to allow designers to trade off the number of words, word length and multiplex factor. Supporting single and dual port SRAM...
Dissolvable wireless sensors to monitor the brain
18.01.2016 - 23:52
A team of neurosurgeons at Washington University School of Medicine in St.Louis and engineers at the University of Illinois has developed wireless brain sensors that monitor intracranial pressure and temperature and then are absorbed by the body, negating the need for surgery to remove them. Such implants could be used to monitor patients wit...
High quality, low cost crystals for more efficient solar cells
18.01.2016 - 23:49
A research team from Japan, led by Takashi Sekiguchi of the Nano-Electronic Materials Unit, International Centre for Materials Nanoarchitectonics and Koichi Kakimoto, a professor at the Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University, has developed a method to grow high-quality mono silicon at low cost. The research resulted in a ...
Bubble-pen lithography allows researchers to create nanodevices
18.01.2016 - 23:46
Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a device and technique called bubble-pen lithography, which can handle nanoparticles, tiny pieces of gold, silicon and other materials used in nanomanufacturing, without damaging them. The method uses microbubbles to inscribe nanoparticles onto ...
Manipulating molecules to build nanodevices from the ground up
18.01.2016 - 23:42
German researchers at Technische Universität München (TUM) have studied how electronic interactions govern the encounter between a molecule called porphine and copper and silver surfaces. As electronic components continue to shrink, top-down manufacturing methods begin to approach a physical limit at the nanoscale. Rather than conti...
ARM based processor set to ‘catalyse’ datacentre innovation, says AMD
18.01.2016 - 23:37
AMD has launched the Opteron A1100 processor, which it is targeting at datacentre applications. The 64bit device, manufactured on what the company calls an optimised 28nm process, features up to eight ARM Cortex-A57 cores, as well as twin 10Gbit Ethernet ports. There are currently three members of the family planned – two of these will ...
