Leti to coordinate Euro project to improve drivetrains for 3rd generation electric vehicles

Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, has announced a new European Horizon 2020 project that looks to develop innovative electric drivetrains for third-generation electric vehicles.

The ModulED project, which brings together 10 European research institutes, key members of the automotive-industry value chain and universities, and will be focused on boosting drivetrain performance to meet vehicle-owner requirements, making manufacturing more efficient and reducing ...

Companies announce AI partnership

CEVA, a licensor of signal processing IP and Brodmann17, a developer of deep learning technology, have announced a partnership with the aim at accelerating the deployment of deep learning computer vision in mainstream applications.

Terahertz spectroscopy goes nano

Brown University researchers have demonstrated a way to bring a powerful form of spectroscopy -- a technique used to study a wide variety of materials -- into the nano-world.

Anglia distributes Renesas microcontrollers

Anglia Components has extended its relationship with Intersil and will now distribute Renesas’ advanced embedded semiconductor solutions including microcontrollers, mixed signal ICs and system in chip devices in the UK and Ireland.

RS stocking new pi-top modular laptop

RS Components (RS) has announced that it is now stocking the latest-generation pi-top modular laptops,  launched today by the pi-top organisation, featuring new enhancements intended to assist learning and boost usability.

Paper based supercapacitor could power wearables

Using a simple layer-by-layer coating technique, researchers from Georgia Tech and Korea University have developed a paper-based flexible supercapacitor that could be used to help power wearable devices. The device uses metallic nanoparticles to coat cellulose fibres in the paper, creating supercapacitor electrodes with high energy and power densities – and the best performance so far in a textile-based supercapacitor.

Microchannels cool high performance processors

As part of the CarriCool project, Fraunhofer researchers have worked with IBM to develop what is said to be an effective method for cooling processors. According to the team, by integrating microchannels into the silicon interposer, a significant increase in performance can be achieved. Meanwhile, the team has also integrated passive components for voltage regulators, photonic ICs and optical waveguides into the interposer.
