Researchers will gather in Orlando, Fla. beginning July 13 to advance the state of DNA computing, a field that holds the promise of ultra-dense systems that pack megabytes of information into devices the size of a silicon transistor. While some researchers suggest DNA computing is an infant discipline looking to find its way into real-world applications, papers presented at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECC) will describe new techniques and tools for building and using DN
Carver Mead turns eye to digital camera that rivals film

Foveon Inc. has built a high-end digital still camera that aims to rival the quality of analog film. The new startup is backed by Carver Mead, the inventor of the gallium-arsenide transistor, the silicon compiler and the artificial retina. Although Mead is not revealing details of the three analog VLSI image chips that are to be used in place of a charge-coupled device (CCD), he claims the Foveon camera spits out a 48-Mbyte, 4,000- x 4,000-pixel Photoshop file.

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.
