Execute in place memory updated for IoT edge applications

As IoT and embedded devices become more intelligent, they need more program memory than can be implemented economically using embedded flash or SRAM. However, their memory requirements are less than the smallest DRAMs. According to Adesto Technologies, this gap can be filled by EcoXiP, an execute in place (XiP) non volatile memory technology.

EcoXiP is said to offer the advantages of traditional XiP systems, but to avoid the trade offs previously made with such ...

Carriers and companies are better prepared for 5G communications

While the challenges associated with 5G communications are considerable, mobile carriers and the companies that support them are far better placed than when 3G and 4G were at a similar stage, according to Ben Timmons, Qualcomms’ senior director of marketing and business development, pictured.

KIT team develops ‘quantum optical structure on a chip

Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology say they have developed a quantum photonic circuit with an electrically driven light source. Described as a ‘complete quantum optical structure on a chip’, the development is said to fulfil one condition for the use of photonic circuits in optical quantum computers.

Coherent backplane IP boosted

ARM has launched the third generation of its coherent backplane technology which it says has been optimised for next generation intelligent connected systems, including 5G networks and industrial systems.

Chaos theory offers solution to Moore’s law

Researchers at North Carolina (NC) State University have developed nonlinear, chaos-based chips that could perform multiple functions with fewer transistors. These ICs could be manufactured with ‘off the shelf’ processes and could lead to novel computer architectures that do more with less circuitry and fewer transistors.

New modulation technique allows 1Tbit/s on optical fibre network

Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) claim to have used a new modulation technique to transmit data at 1Tbit/s on an optical fibre network. This was close to the theoretical maximum information transfer rate of that channel and the Shannon Limit of the fibre link. The breakthrough research could extend the capability of optical networks to meet data traffic demands.

Graphene based quantum LEDs emit single photons

Researchers from the Graphene Flagship have used layered materials to create all electrical quantum LEDs which can emit single photons. The devices are said to have the potential to act as on chip photon sources in quantum information applications.
