Monash University researchers have won the $100,000 Peter Doherty Prize for Innovation, at the Commercialisation Expo 2006, for their work in faster optical communications.
Growing low sheet resistivity transistors on 150 mm silicon wafers has been achieved by a European research group and presented at the 13th International Conference on Metal Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy in Japan.
The Centre for Integrated Photonics (CIP) has announced a hybrid assembly technique that offers a very simple yet highly reliable method of integrating optical devices.
MIT engineers report they may have found a way for structures â€“ and materials â€“ to move like a bird, adjusting its wings to catch every current of air, essentially morphing from one shape into another.
Scientists in the US have devised a new flexible material that could revolutionise the way we light our homes and offices.
Renesas Technology America, Inc. today announced the SH7211F single-chip microcontroller (MCU) with on-chip flash memory, which features a fast SH-2A CPU core with good real-time control capability, an operating speed of 160MHz, and a processing capability of up to almost 320 MIPS.
A joint team from the University of Southampton in Britain and Penn State University in the US has combined the technologies of optical fibre and silicon/germanium to make devices inside microstructured fibres.
Discrete power MOSFETs employ semiconductor processing techniques that are similar to those of today's VLSI circuits, although the device geometry, voltage and current levels are significantly different from the design used in VLSI devices
Samsung Electronics, a manufacturer of advanced memory technology, has claimed it is the first manufacturer in the industry to begin mass producing DDR2 DRAM - 512 Megabit (Mb) - on an 80 nanometer (nm) scale.
