Nanomagnets to replace silicon transistors?

Engineers at the Technische Universität München (TUM) believe that future computer chips could be based on 3D arrangements of nanometre scale magnets, instead of transistors.

The TUM researchers and collaborators at the University of Notre Dame are exploring 'magnetic computing'. Using a 3D stack of nanomagnets, the researchers have implemented a majority logic gate, which could serve as a programmable switch in a digital circuit. The underlying principle ...

Intel saves $9million by applying IoT technology at back end manufacturing site

Intel and Mitsubishi Electric are blending next generation factory automation systems with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in a pilot programme at Intel's backend manufacturing facility in Malaysia. The pilot is intended to demonstrate the benefits of IoT in a factory setting, with a focus on enhancing productivity and is said to have already saved the processor manufacture $9million.

IoT access point uses 6LoWPAN

IoT infrastructure specialist 1248 has announced an ARM powered IoT access point based on the 6LoWPAN wireless standard. Called HyperWeave, the device is said to provide 'IP to the edge' connectivity, linking low power IoT devices to corporate and cloud networks.

Intel invests $1.5bn for stake in Chinese semiconductor firms

Intel has signalled an increased focus on China with the signing of several agreements with state owned Tsinghua Unigroup. The deals, designed to broaden the adoption of Intel based mobile devices in China, will also see Intel investing about $1.5billion for a 20% stake in a new holding company which will own Spreadtrum Communications and RDA Microelectronics.

Platform to speed design bring up and time to market for SoCs

In a move designed to enable earlier software bring up and shorter time to market for SoCs, Synopsys has launched Verification Continuum, a software platform which provides virtual prototyping, static and formal verification, simulation, emulation, FPGA based prototyping and debug in a unified environment.
