Gigaphoton achieves 24-hour continuous operation of EUV light source

Gigaphoton Inc. has announced that it has successfully achieved 24-hour continuous operation of its EUV light source with average output power of 60W on its prototype laser-produced plasma (LPP) light sources, using operating patterns that simulate usage in a high-volume manufacturing (HVM) environment.

This achievement represents a major step towards the mass production of LPP light sources for EUV lithography systems, albeit at a lower power output than ...

First European Standard supporting European eIDAS regulation

The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has published the first of a series of European Standards to support the European Regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market, or eIDAS. EN 319 403, developed by ETSI’s Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures (ESI) technical committee, enables conformity assessment of trust service providers.

Certified partners announced for Microsoft Azure IoT platform

Microsoft has announced the Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT programme, an ecosystem of partners whose offerings have been tested and certified so businesses can take their next IoT project from testing to production more quickly. Current partners include BeagleBone, Freescale Intel Corporation, Raspberry Pi,, Seeed Technology, and Texas Instruments.

Plessey to increase LED capacity by factor of 30, triple workforce

Plessey is to invest £60million to expand its LED manufacturing facility in Plymouth. The expansion will increase production capacity by a factor of 30, triple the workforce and put Plessey in a position to capture what it calls a ‘significant share’ of the growing market for solid state lighting market.

Optical receivers can handle signal rates of up to 130Gbaud

The IQS series of coherent optical receivers, from Teledyne LeCroy, is said to feature the industry’s highest bandwidth. The company says that, when combined with its LabMaster 10Zi-A oscilloscopes and integrated Optical-LinQ analysis software, the IQS receivers can test DP-QPSK and DP-16QAM optical signals at rates of up to 130Gbaud.

2D perovskites could be used for FETs and photodetectors

Continuing the recent trend for researchers to develop novel 2D materials, a team from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in the US has successfully grown 2D sheets of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites from solution. The sheets, said to be large and square shaped, exhibited photoluminescence, colour tunability and what is called a ‘unique structural relaxation’ not found in covalent semiconductor sheets.

Bringing certified security to computing and IoT applications

Infineon Technologies has announced that its OPTIGA TPM (Trusted Platform Module) will be the first device to comply with internationally recognised computer security requirements. The Common Criteria certification is an independent third party process said to help system and device manufacturers select trustworthy solutions.
