Combatting the Inverse Relationship Between Chipset Size and Defect Detection Rates
As chip designs shrink and become increasingly complex, fabricators are facing mounting challenges over quality control. Spotting defects is integral to guaranteeing high yields and consistent performance. Manufacturers must utilize inspection processes that keep pace with chipset innovations.
Introduction to Basic Electrical Theory: Circuit Theory
Electric circuit theory is one of the most vital aspects of electrical engineering. Understanding how components work individually and collectively is the basis for designing, manufacturing, and troubleshooting all kinds of electronic devices and systems. This article will cover the basic circuit components, laws, and parameters in electrical engineering.
An Introduction to Embedded Design and Development: Define and Understand Embedded Systems and Design
In the electronic engineering and computer science fields, several terminologies evolve and become popularised without many people understanding what they mean. For those curious to learn more about embedded systems, this article explains some of the elaborate terms.
Electronically Securing IoT Devices for the Future
As IoT-connected devices continue to rise in popularity, there is a growing need to secure them against cyber-attacks that plague the internet daily and continue to grow in prominence. These threats have the potential to access sensitive information—to the extent that conventional anti-virus and firewall solutions will not suffice.
German Startup e-bot7 Improves Smart Chatbot Communication Through Deep Learning and AI
E-bot7, a German start-up, is becoming known for its innovations that combine chatbots, deep learning AI, and customer service workflows to develop solutions that help customer service representatives just as much as the customers who depend on them.
The First Programmable Memristor Computer: Impacts on Machine Learning and AI Industries
Until now, memristors have primarily been a solution looking for a problem. In a recent development, however, researchers from the University of Michigan claim to have built the first programmable memristor computer.
Has the Limits of Processing Power Been Reached?
As technology advances, so too does the need for more computing power to handle the explosive volumes of data generated. With growing trends in autonomous driving, high-bandwidth data transfer, and cloud computing, leading chipmakers are striving to push out lightning-fast processors every year through many manufacturing and design techniques.
Distinguishing Between AI, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing
As the reality of a fourth industrial revolution becomes more certain, you probably come across the terms “artificial intelligence” and “machine learning” more often than you would expect to, however, surprisingly enough, not many of us really understand the difference between them and their relation to one another. When you understand fully what these terms mean, it becomes easier to appreciate their practical implications.
Wireless Health Monitoring Using Integrated and Stretchable Electronics
The wireless, wearable adhesive-free monitor with integrated stretchable electronics could facilitate comfortable, long-term health monitoring without the risks of skin irritation, injury, or allergic reactions that current adhesive sensors carry.
British Startup Blueshift Memory Supercharges Data Operations with New Memory Technology
Though steady CPU enhancements have boosted computational data manipulation, embedded memory is now the largest remaining efficiency bottleneck. Blueshift Memory is actively working to shrink this gap—a development that will significantly benefit genetic research, AI programming, climate modelling, and more.
