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.
Researchers have developed a new process to make flexible, conducting â€˜nano skinsâ€™ for a variety of applications, from electronic paper to sensors for detecting chemical and biological agents. The materials, which are described in the March issue of the journal Nano Letters, combine the strength and conductivity of carbon nanotubes with the flexibility of traditional polymers.
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
Suitable for displaying switching status, Mentor has developed horizontal SMD components for 3 mm LEDs. Between one and six LEDs, which are available in various quality, colours and combinations of colours, are integrated in the housing.
Fingerprint recognition technology has been used by Cypress Semiconductor and AuthenTec to introduce a reference design for adding biometric security to external hard disk drives (HDDs).
Intel originally designed the Pentium M processor for mobile systems, such as notebooks, to meet the special requirements in this area. Nevertheless, these same characteristics also predestine this processor for embedded applications
Tenrod Australia introduces the newly released high brightness white LED from DOMINANT Semiconductors.
Cutter Electronics will distribute Cree XLamp power LEDs in Australia and New Zealand.
ICP Electronics has released a PICMG single board computer with Intel PCI-Express architecture, the Rocky-6161. The PCI-Express is the latest I/O interface to replace PCI for higher bandwidth and has become a new standard for the next-generation computer industry.
Designed for emerging solid-state lighting uses, where ultra-bright illumination and a versatile colour range is desired in a reflow solderable design optimised for proper thermal management, BivarOpto has introduced a 3 W LED module.
While the degree of precision and reproduction accuracy are unable to match those of costly digital systems, there are many applications that do not require this performance level
