Kotura announced a silicon photonics industry first. The company unveiled its Optical Engine in a Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) package. Kotura's Optical Engine uses Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM), in which different signals can share the same path.
Making permanent connections is as easy as pie for fans of the credit-card size computer sensation known as Raspberry Pi. Available in full, half and quarter sizes at leading electronics distributor Newark element14, Adafruit’s Perma-Proto for Pi Breadboard PCB kits feature the same labelled breakouts as their Pi Cobbler, assuring a seamless transition.
Kotura, Inc. announced it is rolling out an optical engine in a quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP) package. The optical engine uses wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), in which different signals can share the same path. It is demonstrating WDM in a
Tektronix unveiled its next generation of arbitrary waveform generators that offer up to 50 GS/s sample rate performance. The new AWG70000 Series supports a range of demanding signal generation requirements in defense electronics, high-speed serial, optical networking and advanced research
Everyone knows texting (or Redditing or Facebooking or Tweeting) while driving is a bad idea, but that doesn’t stop people from doing it. It’s pretty easy to justify if it’s “just a quick text to my mom” or “a quick peek at my email.” It’s just as easy to end up in an accident because you were distracted.
Manufacturers are constantly trying to find ways to appeal specifically to women. The justification is often that their product—be it pens, cars, or toys—sells with men, but they’re trying to attract more women. It’s a logical thought process: figure out what a demographic wants, market those specific traits, sell more product.
Credit fraud is a growing problem, and new technology isn’t making it any better. With the advent of electronic wallets and fewer cash transactions, maintaining privacy and verifying identity are becoming an alarming issue.
Avago Technologies announced a new 100G CFP2 optical transceiver, the AFBR-8420Z. The device is a 10-channel pluggable, multi-mode parallel optic transceiver module designed for high-density 100G Ethernet and Optical Transport Network (OTN). The transceiver is designed to

Today, ICS Electronics announced the release of their updated GPIB Driver for controlling test instruments on Windows 8 operating systems. Designated as 488.2V4, this updated driver fully supports 32 and 64-bit Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems.
Female professors are almost 50 percent less likely than their male counterparts to be invited to join corporate scientific advisory boards (SABs) and start new companies mainly because of gender stereotyping, says University of Maryland researcher Waverly Ding, an assistant professor of management at the Robert H. Smith School of Business.
There is something universally horrifying about that moment at a party when you meet someone briefly but you can’t recall his name when you bump into him a few minutes later or running into a coworker on the street during lunch and being unable to come up with anything besides "that lady who works two cubes down from me".
How would you stop counterfeiting? One of the hottest topics in electronic components--and basically every other industry-- is how to deal with the issue of counterfeiting. So we put it to the readers to come up with the best solutions for the counterfeiting crisis.
By embedding a leading-edge 50x50x13 mm fan inside of a skived-copper-fin heatsink, Jaro's unique "Skive" Cooler significantly reduces height requirements for low-profile applications, while providing unsurpassed surface-area. The dense arrangement of thin copper fins offers unheralded thermal conductivity.
Designers of energy-efficient, high-speed memory subsystems for small form factor or power-sensitive embedded and wireless products are often making the shift from traditional DDR2/DDR3 to low power (LP) DDR2/DDR3 memory solutions. This is largely in response to the ever-challenging power reduction requirements....
Users want ever-smaller and lighter devices but also demand ever-increasing storage capacity to keep more apps and data loaded on their mobile computing platforms. To accommodate these two competing objectives, solid-state storage form factors will need to get smaller, while NAND flash memory geometries will be shrinking and storing more bits per cell.
I was planning to write about software patent trolls and was entering "software patents" in my search engine when it offered the suggestion "are evil" to complete the phrase. I'll buy that. So to encourage more traffic here, that is the title of this post. Yes. I have been blogging for quite some time.
Vicor Corporation expanded its Picor Cool-Power ZVS Buck Regulator product line for high efficiency point-of-load DC-DC regulation. Optimized for 12-V operation (8 V to 18 Vin), these new PI34XX Series buck regulators increase performance for a host of embedded applications in computing
Saelig Company has introduced the PicoScope 3207A and PicoScope 3207B, the first PC oscilloscopes to offer a USB 3.0 interface. The PicoScope 3207A is a 2-channel USB oscilloscope with 250 MHz bandwidth, 1 GS/s sampling rate, 256 Msample buffer memory and a built-in function generator.
Hackers targeted dozens of computer systems at government agencies across Europe in a series of attacks that exploited a recently discovered security flaw in Adobe Systems Inc's software, security researchers reported on Wednesday. Russia's Kaspersky Lab and Hungary's Laboratory of Cryptography and System Security, or CrySyS, said the targets of the campaign included government computers in the Czech Republic, Ireland, Portugal and Romania.
ANN ARBOR—Running cockroaches start to recover from being shoved sideways before their dawdling nervous system kicks in to tell their legs what to do, researchers have found. These new insights on how biological systems stabilize could one day help engineers design steadier robots and improve doctors' understanding of human gait abnormalities.
Symtavision has launched SymTA/S 3.3, a major new version of its award-winning system-level tool suite for planning, optimizing and verifying embedded real-time systems. SymTA/S 3.3 features significant new timing analyses including support for FlexRay System Distribution,
