Intel GmbH has opened an R&D center in Braunschweig, Germany, to further its bid to propel processor architectures to teraflops performance while lowering power requirements.
High-k dielectrics turned into spin filters
News & Analysis  
4/24/2006   Post a comment
Though the International Semiconductor Roadmap predicted that 65-nanometer chips would require high-k dielectrics, some chip makers, Intel Corp. among them, put off switching until the 45-nm node, where researchers widely agree the high-k dielectrics will have to be used. Now, a researcher at the University of Utah reports, cobalt-doped high-k dielectrics can double as filters for "spintronic" transistors at the 45-nm node and beyond.
Coating lets nanotube transistors self-assemble on chips
News & Analysis

Next-generation semiconductors aim to harness the ballistic electron transport capabilities of pure carbon nanotubes, but until now there has been no easy way to integrate the tubes with silicon chips.
MEMS puts effects at guitarists' fingertips

It's the stuff of rock 'n' roll fantasy: a ring that gives its wearer the power to morph the sound of an electric guitar at will. Thanks to the pairing of an automotive airbag accelerometer with a customized version of a popular audio processor, a technology called Hot Hand claims to make that scenario possible.
Living viruses create flexible battery film
News & Analysis

Battery technology has historically lagged far behind semiconductor technology. While chips double their capacity every 18 months or so, batteries are lucky to double capacities in a decade.
MEMS, SoC give Hot Hand assembly a light touch
News & Analysis  
4/17/2006   Post a comment
Much of the Hot Hand sound-effect technology's capability comes from the use of the ADXL320 microelectromechanical-system-based accelerometer.

Oscillator aims MEMS at the mainstream

Since the '60s, microelectromechanical systems have struggled to enter the mainstream.
Nanotubes, flattened, create carbon films
News & Analysis  
4/10/2006   Post a comment
Portland, Ore. -- Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology, in cooperation with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in France, have flattened out carbon nanotubes into monofilms to create a new material they call "epitaxial graphene." The material has low-resistance electrodes, full lithographic compatibility and the ability to control the wave properties of electrons as well as their conventional electronic properties.

ROBOTICS: Board grants autonomy to bots
Product News  
4/3/2006   Post a comment
Analog Devices Inc. has teamed with robotics expert Fred Martin to create a single-board solution for autonomous robots. The Blackfin Handy Board, containing all the electronics needed for sensing, processing and actuating robots, will be announced this week at the Embedded Systems Conference.
Tomorrow's aircraft flies without flaps
News & Analysis  
4/3/2006   Post a comment
European aerospace researchers have shown the first prototype of a planned "flapless" unmanned air vehicle. Similar to a remote-controlled U.S. Predator drone, the prototype UAV is an early milestone for the five-year Flapless Air Vehicle Integrated Industrial Research (Flaviir) project, which aims to produce a fully autonomous UAV with no moving control surfaces by 2009.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
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.
