Choosing a supercomputer for some fields of electronic research presents a conundrum for researchers, thanks to practical limitations inherent in every option
Comsol has launched what it claims is the first dual analog KVM matrix switching system for Australian installations. The system from Avocent delivers redundancy and automatic failover, ensuring continuous connectivity to IT systems for data centres and test laboratories. This enhancement, available free to most existing AMX switching system owners, improves business continuity by maintaining connection, even if a matrix switch fails.
The Boxer Series of products are high-performance standalone embedded PCs featuring: fanless operation, compact size, robust construction, low power requirements, high vibration/shock protection, wide operating temperature range and certified embedded OS support.
Elgato Systems has announced a distribution agreement with Conexus, a specialist distributor of multimedia technologies for the Macintosh.
Professor Mandyam Srinivasan, the Queensland Brain Institute's head of visual neuroscience, has received the 2008 Rank Prize for Optoelectronics.
The MG inductor series from Gowanda Electronics provides a breakthrough in inductor component technology. Inductors manufactured using traditional methods can exhibit magnetic characteristics that are undesirable in certain applications. Gowanda's MG series is manufactured using a novel approach that assures the inductors have non-magnetic characteristics.
Two researchers want to make sure future generations of TV watchers will be able to see the brightest, most beautiful colour possible and for a lot less money
Nitronex, an innovative developer and manufacturer of high-performance RF power transistors for the commercial and broadband wireless infrastructure markets, has developed a 28 V, 100 W gallium nitride high electron mobility transistor (HEMT), ideal for WiMAX applications. Designed using Nitronex's patented Sigantic NFR1 process, the NPT25100 GaN-on-Si power transistor is designed specifically for 2.3 - 2.7 GHz WiMAX applications. Typical performance is rated using a mobile WiMAX waveform defined as a single carrier OFDM signal 64-QAM Â¾, 8 burst, 3.5 MHz channel bandwidth, 10.3 dB PAR @ .01% probability on CCDF. Under these test conditions, the NPT25100 will deliver 14.5 dB of gain (typical), 21% efficiency, and less than 2.5% EVM — all at >10 W of power.
The market for printed and organic lighting will exceed $2.9 billion by 2012, according to a report from NanoMarkets LC, an industry analyst firm.
A consortium led by Filtronic, and including QinetiQ, Forge Europa, Thomas Swan and Cambridge University, has won a three-year contract within the DTI technology program to develop a route to low cost LEDs for solid-state lighting.
Today there are large boards and shop displays that talk directly to customers, using digital information embedded in the paper
