The Blockchain-based ‘Handshake’ Solution: an Answer to DNS Security Issues
The traditional application of any domain name system may be tried and true, but it’s prone to vulnerabilities and censorship. The new network solution, ‘Handshake’, introduces a decentralised—namely blockchain-based—angle on DNSs that could be the answer.
TSMC and Purdue University Partner on Secured Microelectronics Ecosystem
On Friday 14th June, Purdue University and the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) announced their plans to establish a Center for Secured Microelectronics Ecosystem to ensure a secure supply of chips from foundry to system.
Meet Power Product Safety Standards with the Bourns SinglFuse Overcurrent Protection Line
In recent months, Bourns has announced significant expansions to their existing SinglFuse SMD fuse product line. Already an industry leader, it seems that Bourns is determined to provide the latest technology in circuit protection devices for a wide range of applications.
What Sets ABET Accredited Engineering University Programmes Apart?
Is formal accreditation mandatory for engineering programmes? Does it really help students to find work more easily than those that have studied at a non-accredited institution? We analyse the various aspects of ABET accreditation in detail.
Skin-inspired Sensing: Sweden’s Linköping University Associate Professor Discusses Medical & Robotics Applications
Magnus Jonsson, associate professor at Sweden’s Linköping University, has led a research team in the development of a pyroelectricity and thermoelectricity-based sensor, whose pressure and temperature monitoring capabilities are modelled on human skin itself.
What’s the Difference Between Plumbene, Silicene, and Graphene?
Graphene is a two-dimensional lattice of carbon atoms. Silicene, on the other hand, is the thinnest possible 2D form of silicon, and plumbene is a 2D lattice of lead atoms. These two-dimensional materials have researchers scrambling to understand them better, and they have superlative traits that could have drastic implications for the future of physics and engineering.
London Tech Week Inspires IoT and AI Development Discussions from International Industry Leaders
Outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May launched the sixth annual London Tech Week earlier this month. Operated by Informa Tech, London Tech Week brings together some of the biggest tech names from around the world.
Hybrid-Electric Aircraft Advance Aviation Industry Standards
Just like electric vehicles, the idea of designing electric-powered aircraft has been with us for decades. However, unlike EVs, its development and commercialisation have been much slower: technical issues, production costs, and safety issues multiply exponentially when it comes to vehicles that take to the skies.
