An electronic switch has been released by New Zealand company Vectek Electronics. To achieve high reliability it is often necessary to switch to an alternative power supply quickly but without connecting the two supplies together and transferring any fault that may be present.
Researchers at the University of Manchester in England have produced tiny liquid crystal devices with electrodes made from graphene — a development that could lead to computer and TV displays based on this technology.
DuPont and Dainippon Screen Manufacturing have formed an alliance to develop integrated manufacturing equipment for printed organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays.
Better switching performance of transistors of disordered silicon films can be achieved by making the conduction channel in the device very thin, according to research at the University of Surrey in England.
Impart Special Products, Australian supplier of Emergency Vehicle Control & Safety Systems, has announced iCAN, which is a programmable set of modules that interface into a vehicle's CAN Bus system to retrieve information for use by the vehicle’s body control system.
Graphene has been used to create the world’s smallest transistor, one atom thick and 10 atoms wide, according to Dr Kostya Novoselov and Prof Andre Geim from The School of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester.
A high-accuracy, low-cost photonic stamp in silicon is aimed at helping the growing demand for photonic crystal structures necessary for future photonic devices.
Richardson Electronics has released the 2008 line card for its RF, wireless and power conversion division, which designs and distributes components, modules and assemblies used in RF and wireless infrastructure, networks, digital broadcasting, defence and power conversion.
NEC Corporation has developed a carbon nanotube (CNT) transistor using a coating process. The basic operation of the new transistor with advanced characteristics has been verified, confirming its application in the printed electronics field.
