Web based study programme to provide insight into graphene

Chalmers University of Technology is launching a web based programme which will introduce engineers to the world of graphene science and technology.

"This is a new and different way for us to take on the role of knowledge disseminator in our society", says Maria Knutson Wedel, vice president for undergraduate and master's education at Chalmers. "Previously, we have primarily shared knowledge on a local and national level. The technology today enables global ...

Qualcomm to develop ARM based server chips

Qualcomm has announced plans to develop ARM based chips targeted at the burgeoning market for data centres. Company CEO Steve Mollenkopf, pictured, said at its latest investor meeting the server market is 'an interesting opportunity' and will be worth more than $15billion a year by 2020. "We will have a server product," he said. "Qualcomm's road map at the high end is merging with what is feasible to put into a data centre."

Metal oxide clusters could provide an alternative to flash memory

While flash memory is a widely used storage medium, manufacturers are facing challenges when it comes to making the devices on leading edge processes. Although flash manufacturers are looking to 3D arrangements to avoid these problems, researchers from the University of Glasgow and Rovira I Virgili University in Spain believe molecular electronics could be another useful solution.

€1bn contract to kit Typhoon with leading electronic radar system

A €1billion contract signed by defence ministers from a number of countries will lead to what is being called a 'world leading' electronic radar system for the Eurofighter Typhoon. The deal will see the Captor E-Scan Active Electronically Scanned Array Radar System (AESA) integrated onto the Eurofighter Typhoon.

Intel to build HPC processor on 10nm process

Looking to meet the challenges of future high performance computing (HPC) systems, Intel says it will build the third generation of its Xeon Phi product family on a 10nm process technology. The chips, codenamed Knights Hill, will feature the company's Omni-Path Fabric technology, rather than the Infiniband interconnect.

Low cost, high pin count 32bit MCUs

Microchip has launched a new range of what it describes as low cost, high pin count 32bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs). The company says that, by bringing together key features from its PICM32MX1/2 and PIC32MX5 MCU families, it has created a device suited to applications with complex code requirements.

FPGA is ‘just another processor core’

Altera and IBM have developed an FPGA based acceleration platform that connects an FPGA coherently to a POWER8 CPU via IBM's Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (CAPI). By sharing virtual memory between the FPGA and processor, the reconfigurable hardware accelerator is said to improve system performance, efficiency and flexibility in high performance computing and data centre applications.
