The DFI Technical Group today released the preliminary DFI 3.0 specification defining an interface protocol between DDR memory controllers and PHYs. The new specification enables the development of chips to support the emerging DDR4 memory standard.
AVX Corporation has developed a broadband inductor that offers low insertion loss up through 40 GHz. Featuring a pyramid shape and rugged powdered iron core, the GL Series broadband inductor provides
Unlike human-to-human gesturing, human-machine gesturing does not have a foundation of thousands of years of history to use as a context. This poses a challenge for human interface system designers. If a user performs a gesture, how does the machine know how to react in a manner that is commensurate with the user’s intentions?
