Leti joins Stanford SystemX Alliance

French research institute Leti has joined the Stanford SystemX Alliance, a network of 100 Stanford University professors and 27 companies. The Alliance is a pre competitive environment in which the members are looking to define research strategies. According to Leti, it provides a bridge between academia and industry.

Israeli V2X chipset to feature in global platform

A chipset from Israeli V2X specialist Autotalks is being designed into a global V2X platform being developed by Denso. According to Autotalks, the prototyping phase has started, with the intention to start high volume production in 2019, initially in North America.

RS Components supports education with range of industrial engineering solutions

RS Components (RS) has introduced its new education hub to support schools, colleges and universities to make informed choices about the most appropriate industrial electronics and other engineering equipment to fulfil their teaching and support requirements, as well as to encourage creativity, design and innovation through the early adoption of the latest technologies.

NMI sets up Impactech with Southampton

A collaboration between the University of Southampton and the National Microelectronics Institute (NMI) is intended to provide NMI member companies with access to world leading research expertise at the University.

Qualcomm signs Arrow to distribute processors targeted at embedded apps

In a change of marketing tactics, Qualcomm is making the newly launched Snapdragon 600E and 410E processors available through distribution. Recognising the need for long term availability, Qualcomm says customers will be able to source the parts ‘for a minimum of 10 years’. Initially, they will be supplied through Arrow Electronics, although the company says a global network of distributors will be created.

Mesh networking module simplifies Thread and ZigBee

Silicon Labs has introduced a family of Wireless Gecko modules focused on mesh networking applications with support for ZigBee and Thread software. First in the family, the MGM111 module’s integration of onboard stacks, antenna options and RF regulatory certifications is said to help developers reduce cost, complexity and time to market.

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.

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.

Arrow and Novasom sign EMEA distribution agreement

Arrow Electronics has confirmed a new distribution agreement with Novasom Industries, a global engineering company that develops advanced technology solutions for products and processes in the fields of embedded electronics. The agreement will cover the entire EMEA region.

Advanced AI for self-driving cars

Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) could improve the image recognition performance of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in automated vehicles, according to EDA specialist Cadence.
