Less energy to turn transistors on Power DesignLine Blog 4/22/2009 Post a comment EE Times' advanced technology editor reports on new developments in ferroelectric transistors that seem to point to a lower energy level needed to turn a transistor on.
Don't pooh-pooh the PUE Power DesignLine Blog 4/13/2009 Post a comment IC power management engineers have their work cut out: the PUE metric requires complete knowledge and understanding of each component in the data center and its power consumption.
Go read a good book! Power DesignLine Blog 4/8/2009 Post a comment Professor Gabriel Alfonso Rincón-Mora of the Georgia Institute of Technology in his book covers the entire product development cycle, from defining objectives and selecting components to layout, assembly, fine-tuning performance, and tests.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
