ARM invests in NB-IoT expertise

In a move said to enable its customers to design narrow band IoT (NB-IoT) compliant products, ARM has acquired Mistbase and NextG-Com, noting both companies engineering expertise in software and hardware IP for the emerging standard.

DNA switch for small electronic devices

A controllable DNA switch has been developed by a team from Arizona State University to regulate the flow of electricity within a single, atomic-sized molecule. This discovery could advance the development of small, low cost electronic devices.

ARM based MCU controls space experiment

The SpaceX CRS-10 cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station, which launched on Saturday 18 February, carried experimental electronics controlled by an ARM based MCU from Vorago Technologies.

'Lossless' metamaterial could boost efficiency of lasers

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a material that could reduce signal losses in plasmonic metamaterials. According to the researchers, the advance has the potential to boost the efficiency of various light-based technologies including fibre optic communication systems, lasers and photovoltaics.

Inkjet printer reduces cost of stretchable ICs

Engineering researchers at Michigan State University claim to have developed the first stretchable integrated circuit that is made entirely using an inkjet printer, raising the possibility of inexpensive mass production of smart fabric.

One up for spin electronics

The transport of spin information at room temperature in a material system has been demonstrated by a team from the Kyoto University in Japan, the Walther-Meißner-Institute and the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

Rebar graphene for lithium ion capacitors

A chunk of conductive graphene foam reinforced by carbon nanotubes can support more than 3000 times its own weight and bounce back to its original height, according to Rice University scientists. The material is thermally stable and highly conductive, making it suitable for batteries and other electrical applications.

Government Green Paper seen as 'tremendous opportunity'

The Government’s Green Paper, outlining its thoughts on an industrial strategy for the UK, is seen by ESCO – the Electronics and Electrical Systems Council – as a ‘tremendous opportunity’. ESCO believes it will start an important consultation process that will see the UK’s industrial policies and strategies upgraded, while ensuring that appropriate focus is given to issues such as skills, immigration and productivity.

EU consortium to assist photonics companies

The EPRISE project, ‘Empowering Photonics through Regional Innovation Strategies in Europe’, brings together nine photonics innovation clusters and national photonics platforms from around Europe. The project aims to support companies who use photonics to enter four market sectors: medical technologies; pharmaceuticals; agriculture; and food.
