Are you influenced by the opinions of other people — say, in the comments sections of websites? If your answer is no, here's another question: Are you sure? A new study co-authored by an MIT professor suggests that many people are, in fact, heavily influenced by the positive opinions other people express online....
VadaTech has released a complete ecosystem of boards and chassis in the MicroTCA architecture that is conduction-cooled. Designed for rugged applications, the products include Air Transport Racks (ATR), MicroTCA Carrier Hubs (MCH), Power Modules, and Advanced Mezzanine Cards.
If you thought the U.S. government had no interest in your texts and emails, you better think again — the NSA’s dragnet just got a lot bigger. Officially, the policy of the NSA has been to intercept communications from Americans in direct contact with “targeted” foreigners overseas, according to the New York Times. However, it seems the agency has been looking at more than they’ve “officially” admitted.
SiP Global Summit 2013, 3D-IC & Substrate Pavilion, and Advanced Packaging Technology Symposium at SEMICON Taiwan 2013 showcase packaging solutions...
Cypress Semiconductor announced a new CapSense Express capacitive touch-sensing controller optimized to replace mechanical buttons in front panels for industrial and consumer applications, portable medical devices, gaming devices and home automation systems.
Larson Electronics has announced the release of a powerful and compact LED light bar designed for rugged use. The LEDP3W-3-M Low Profile High Intensity LED Light Bar produces an intense 684 lumens of light output while consuming less than 1 amp of power and includes a 200 lbs grip magnetic base for easy yet secure mounting capabilities.
It seems like such a simple question. What does the public think about the government surveillance programs that former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden revealed? For pollsters, the query actually is complex because the answer varies greatly depending on how they ask the question.
Yale researchers have discovered a new technique that allows them to measure electrical activity of genetically-targeted sets of neurons in a living organism, a prerequisite for understanding the complex language of the brain....
August 5th marked the one-year anniversary of the Curiosity Rover’s landing on Mars. In addition to turning me from a Space Hater into a Space Junkie, the landing was a celebration of a great landmark in the world of NASA and space. Curiosity, part of NASA’s Mars Exploration program, carries the most advanced suite of instruments of any device sent to the Martian surface.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for three new Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) from Skyworks Solutions. Targeted towards cellular infrastructure including small cells, tower mounted amplifiers, remote radio units and repeaters, these three LNAs are footprint compatible with each other and come in a compact, 2x2mm DFN package.
B&K Precision today announced the launch of its 4050 Series, a line of four dual channel function/arbitrary waveform generators. These new instruments can generate waveforms up to 50 MHz for use in education and applications requiring stable and precise sine, square, triangle, and pulse waveforms, with modulation and arbitrary waveform capabilities.
American prosecutors say Pangang Group aimed high. The Chinese state-owned company wanted a better process to make titanium dioxide, a white pigment used in paint, toothpaste and Oreo cookie filling. So it paid spies to steal it from industry giant DuPont.
Advanced Power Electronics Corp. has launched an asymmetric-dual N-channel enhancement mode power MOSFET targeting synchronous buck dc/dc converter power designs. Packaged in a small 3mm square PMPAK3x3, the AP6950GYT comprises a “high-side” control MOSFET (CH-1) and a “low-side” synchronous MOSFET (CH-2)....
In this week's headlines: AquaTop Display brings immersive entertainment to your bathroom: Researchers at Tokyo's University of Electro-Communications are exploring new territory in the field of natural user interface design with their AquaTop Display.
The models explaining what everyone knew about sugar uptake in bacteria are fundamentally flawed. New models correct those flaws. It turns out that bacteria regulate their sugar uptake mechanism not just by looking at the sugar available. The old models said that if sugar was scarce, bacteria made more sugar processing mechanisms to go after more of the scarce resources.
