Unlimited Source of Energy- As good as it Sounds

A team from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia has developed a device which will use infrared radiation, in addition to waste heat from industrial processes, for power generation. The device will do this by transitioning quadrillionth-of-a-second wave signals into useful electricity. Scientists point out that infrared heat can be harvested 24 hours a day. One method o ...

HIFIVE UNLEASHED – THE FIRST RISC-V-BASED LINUX DEVELOPMENT BOARD

RISC-V is an open specification of an Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). That is, it describes the way in which software talks to an underlying processor – just like the x86 ISA for Intel/AMD processors and the ARM ISA for ARMprocessors. Unlike those, however, the RISC-V ISA is open so that anyone can build a processor that supports it. Just as Linux revolutionize the software world, RISC-V could create a ...

Op amps, comparators said to be smallest ever

Texas Instruments introduced the industry’s smallest operational amplifier and low-power comparators at 0.64 mm2. As the first amplifiers in the compact X2SON package, the TLV9061 op-amp and TLV7011 family of comparators enable engineers to reduce their system size and cost, while maintaining high performance in a variety of Internet of Things (IoT), personal electronics and industrial applications, includi ...

HoneyWell´s Small, High Performance Pressure Sensor

It can be relatively easy to introduce a board mount pressure sensor to the market. In fact, over the last few years, several companies have introduced low-performance, unamplified sensors to address high volume opportunities. However, modern applications demand so much more than a cheap low-performance sensor. Design cycles don’t allow for designers to do all of the extra work needed to make a useful measu ...

Researches Solve Problems of Organic Thin Film Transistors By Developing Nanostructured Gate Dielectric

Amorphous silicon-based Thin-film transistors (TFTs) are the foundation of many modern-day technologies, such as smartphones and flat-panel TVs. Still, it comes with a few drawbacks like performance limitations due to limited carrier mobility. Provoking the researchers in search of something better. As a result, Organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) were developed. OTFTs have solved the problem with carrier ...
