UV-B comms system transmits 71Mbit/s

Researchers at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) say they have demonstrated rapid data transfer using ultraviolet-B (UV-B) light, adding the system provides advantages over the use of visible light.

Hot electrons generate light in chips

A metamaterial developed by researchers at King’s College London uses quantum effects to turn electrons flowing through a circuit into ‘hot electrons’ and light in a highly controlled manner. According to the team, this has potential application in optoelectronics and sensing.

Far field voice capture evaluation kit launched

XMOS says the xCORE VocalFusion Speaker Linear evaluation kit is now available. Part of its range of far-field voice capture solutions, the kit is based on the XVF3100 voice processor and targeted at those looking to integrate voice interfaces into ‘edge of the room’ devices such as smart home control panels and washing machines.

AWS takes ‘stewardship’ of FreeRTOS

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched Amazon FreeRTOS. Based on the popular FreeRTOS kernel, Amazon FreeRTOS is aimed at IoT applications. The move also sees AWS take 'stewardship' of FreeRTOS.

Nanomaterial can act as a security system for chips

Researchers at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering have developed unclonable cybersecurity security primitives made using molybdenum disulphide with the highest possible level of structural randomness. The latter feature is said by the team to be ‘highly desirable’ for constructing the security primitives.
