Using piezoelectric materials, researchers have replicated the muscle motion of the human eye to control camera systems in a way designed to improve the operation of robots. This new muscle-like action could help make robotic tools safer and more effective for MRI-guided surgery and robotic rehabilitation.
It's a challenge that's long been one of the holy grails of quantum computing: How to create quantum bits, or qubits – the key building blocks of quantum computers - that exist in a solid-state system at room temperature. Most current systems, by comparison, rely on complex and expensive equipment designed to trap a single atom or electron in a vacuum then cool the entire system to close to absolute zero.
Rising energy costs and increasing support for clean, renewable energy sources has made solar power a growth industry. Solar panels directly generate power by converting sunlight to electricity with no moving parts, zero emissions, and little to no maintenance.
Have you ever had an afternoon—possibly every afternoon—where you brain simply refuses to focus on the task at hand? A to-do item that should take a moment takes an hour, an in-depth task is put off till tomorrow and you’re receiving nagging emails from annoyed co-workers?
ZMD AG announces a new addition to its LED driver family, the ZSLS7025. As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI introduces the ZSLS7025, a step-up (boost) converter, for high-brightness LED lighting. It is well suited for many consumer, industrial and after-market automotive applications. The ZSLS7025 is optimal for driving multiple white LEDs connected in series from a low voltage supply.
Consumers want to improve the functionality offered by sports and fitness apps through the use of sensors. A recent study conducted by IMS Research, a company recently acquired by IHS Inc. (NYSE:IHS), found that 62.3 percent of respondents with a smartphone interested in sports and fitness applications and who exercised at least once week, were prepared to purchase sensors to monitor performance and enhance the sports and fitness application on their smartphone.
A new study suggests that extra time in the womb results in more brain development. Full-term newborns born later than 38 weeks perhaps have better scores on academic tests.
Government health experts said Thursday there are few reasons to continue using metal-on-metal hip implants, amid growing evidence that the devices can break down early and expose patients to dangerous metallic particles.
AMD introduced the latest entry to the AMD Embedded G-Series processor family with the AMD Embedded G-T16R Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). The AMD G-T16R is targeted at very low power, small form factor and cost-sensitive embedded designs that require a combination of x86 compatibility and graphics. The optimized design of the AMD Embedded G-T16R sips power, with power consumption of just 2.3 watts[iv] on average or 4.5 watts thermal design power (TDP).
Scientists in the United States have developed a paint that can store and deliver electrical power just like a battery.
Google helped create a world brimming with digital distractions for people spending more of their lives tethered to the Internet. It's a phenomenon that seems unlikely to change so Google is working on a way to search for information, read text messages, watch online video and post photos on social networks without having to fumble around with a hand-held device.
IMS Research projects that by 2016, wireless-enabled consumer medical devices will use Bluetooth Smart technology the most. IMS Research forecasts that more than 4.7 million consumer medical devices containing Bluetooth Smart will be shipped in 2016 with more than 10.3 million shipped from 2012 to 2016.
Electronic Assembly has designed the EA DIP203-4 LCD module for applications where the display has to be clearly legible. The module comes with a high-contrast alphanumeric LCD supertwist display for showing four 20-character lines. LED background lighting supplied as a standard feature makes the text clearly stand out.
Meet Roxxi - a feisty and fully-armed virtual nanobot. Billed as "medicine's mightiest warrior", she's fighting an epic battle deep inside the human body where she launches rapid-fire assaults on malignant cells.
Canon is debuting their Mixed Reality Glasses—just in case you suddenly have the desire to totally throw off your entire vestibular system and sense of reality. You know, like at a fun weekend party. The goggles fall somewhere between Google Glass and RED Classic ViewMaster 3D Viewer and Collector Reel. If you’re still not experiencing a vivid mental image, they look awful, heavy, and awkward...
STMicroelectronics is now delivering the first samples of its new STM32 F3 series of microcontrollers, featuring the ARM Cortex-M core, to major OEM customers.
Microwave coaxial cables feature solid core or monofilament dielectric for desirable signal speed and improved electrical performanceJune 26, 2012 3:18 pm | Product Releases | Comments
Temp-Flex LLC, a subsidiary of Molex Incorporated, announced the availability of microwave coaxial cables designed for high-bandwidth applications using proprietary processes.
Pentek, Inc. introduced a system synchronization and distribution amplifier, the Model 7893 PCIe board.
Imagine if doctors could perform surgery without ever having to cut through your skin. Or if they could diagnose cancer by seeing tumors inside the body with a procedure that is as simple as an ultrasound. Thanks to a technique developed by engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), all of that may be possible in the not-so-distant future.
Researchers in Finland and Germany have developed an open-source software that will make it significantly easier to process bioimaging data. The software, named BioImageXD, will help in analysing cell and tissue functions.
