'Skin' could refine robots' sense of touch
News & Analysis  
5/30/2005   Post a comment
Robots have mastered picking and placing, welding, and similar tasks that can be precalibrated, but they cannot perform tasks that requite a sense of touch, such as "feeling" when a bolt's threads mesh before screwing it in.
Brain wave sensor system taps Bluetooth marshaled for mind readers
Product News  
5/30/2005   Post a comment
NeuroSky Inc. wants to get into your head. By fusing brain wave recognition algorithms with a sensor chip and dry electrode, NeuroSky hopes to simplify cell phone-based applications that today require error-prone human input, as well as revolutionize applications from gaming to medical diagnostics and therapy.
Memory marquee
News & Analysis  
5/23/2005   Post a comment
With SRAM, DRAM and flash high-stepping down the road map for both standalone and embedded designs, any competing memory chip technology faces an uphill battle. Nevertheless, other types of memory — in various stages of development — are rumbling offstage.
Metamaterials yield left-handed complement for optics
News & Analysis  
5/23/2005   Post a comment
Metamaterials that are able to reverse basic optical properties of conventional lenses and microwave antennas are being explored as a superior optical medium.
Tweak to inductive loading shrinks antenna
News & Analysis  
5/16/2005   Post a comment
Independent tests appear to support an inventor's claim that his skunk-works antenna design can shrink antenna size by up to 70 percent while maintaining equivalent sensitivity and increasing bandwidth.
Self-replicating robots are demonstrated at Cornell
News & Analysis

Robots at Cornell University are making copies of themselves without human intervention.
Nanowires look promising for plastic circuits
News & Analysis  
5/9/2005   Post a comment
Silicon nanowires could combine the best features of carbon nanotubes and amorphous silicon to overcome the liabilities of the circuit technologies being explored for large-area flexible substrates, research at Harvard University suggests.
Precise placement of nanotubes demonstrated
News & Analysis  
5/2/2005   Post a comment
Growing carbon nanotubes on silicon chips could enable nanoscale transistors, but only if designers can specify exactly where the tiny devices grow.

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.
