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.
Addressing Energy Inefficiency in Wi-Fi Systems and Infrastructure
The intensive use of Wi-Fi communications has led to the growth of W-Fi infrastructure worldwide. Due to the huge amounts of data transmission, however, these consume a whole lot of power that is lost as heat. This shouldn't (and doesn't need to) be the case.
Electronic Device Security Experts Weigh in on Insecure Electronics Use by the Military
At the end of last month, a report by the Pentagon's inspector general revealed the US Department of Defense (DoD) spent over $32.8 million in the 2018 fiscal year on electronics with known security vulnerabilities.
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.
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.
The Major Differences in Electrical Standards Between the U.S. and Europe
Working on an electrical engineering project for a country other than the one you were educated in is going to be a major challenge—especially when you consider that almost every country in Europe has its own version of electrical standards and codes.
The ‘Beyond 5G’ Wireless Transceiver and The Future of High Speed Connectivity
A new radio chip from the University of California, Irvine (UCI), may have already paved the way for futuristic 6G, despite 5G cellular network standard still being in its infancy. Developed by electrical engineers at UCI’s Nanoscale Communication Integrated Circuits labs, the product promises to deliver up to 4 times greater speed and significantly higher bandwidth than 5G.
Cal Test CT4140A 4mm Fuse Adapter Prioritises User and Electrical Safety Measures
Cal Test Electronics has unveiled a new 4mm fuse adapter, setting their sights on ultimate flexibility and electrical safety. The CT4140A is designed to accommodate a variety of electrical applications, delivering on its potential as an essential tool for engineers.
How Much Time Do Electrical Engineers Spend on Testing and Inspection?
Virtually every residential building, facility, or industrial plant requires myriad electrical systems to run various processes. This calls for extensive testing and inspection to ensure the reliability of assets and user safety.
CEO of Dutch Start-Up NOWI on Boosting Sensor and IoT Development with Energy Harvesting Technology
Simon van der Jagt, CEO and co-founder of NOWI, has spent the past few years developing a new energy harvesting IC that uses external energy sources to power connected devices, which could help to overcome problems associated with battery-powered sensors and ultimately enable more effective IoT implementations.
How Organic Biodegradable Electronics Help Protect the Environment and Ourselves
Waste, and especially electronics waste, is a major issue that humanity needs to tackle if it’s to keep this planet in a viable condition long-term. Bioengineers have been working increasingly closely with electronics engineers to resolve this issue with multiple breakthroughs in the last 12 months.
