High temp MCUs run for 4000hrs at 200°C

Extreme temperature specialist Vorago Technologies says its VA10800 microcontrollers have now been operating successfully in a temperature controlled oven for more than 4000 hours at 200°C. During this time, the CPUs – based on the ARM Cortex-M0 core – have performed more than 7200trillion sequencial error free operations and exhibited consistently low current consumption.

Flexible memory could find application in ‘soft electronics’

In collaboration with Sungkyunkwan University, researchers from the Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), have created a memory device inspired by the neuron connections of the human brain. According to the team, the memory’s stretchability and flexibility makes it promising for use in next-generation soft electronics attached to clothes or the body.

Discovery of two types of lithium deposits in batteries

A team of researchers at MIT says it has developed fundamental insights into how lithium deposits form on the metal surface of electrodes in lithium metal batteries. Professor Martin Bazant said: “Although it was known that such growth occurs on lithium surfaces, this is the first study to show the two different types.”

TFTs printed with 1µm line widths

A Japanese research consortium says it has developed a printing technique that allows electronic circuits and thin film transistors (TFTs) to be created with line widths and line spacings of 1µm.

Roll-process technology for transferring and packaging flexible LSI

Research teams from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) have developed a continuous roll-processing technology that transfers and packages flexible large-scale integrated (LSI) circuits on plastics for flexible computers, wearable electronics, application processors, and other high-density memory and high-speed communication devices.

Robots can learn by simply observing

According to researchers at the University of Sheffield, it is now possible for machines to learn how natural or artificial systems work by simply observing them, without being told what to look for. This could mean advances in machines being able to predict, among other things, human behaviour.

Edible batteries for future medical devices

Edible, non-toxic batteries could one day power ingestible devices for diagnosing and treating disease and a team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in the United States has reported progress in their development by using melanin pigments, which are naturally found in the body, to develop edible batteries.
