For 40 years, so called integrated circuits have integrated little more than transistors, diodes and sensors assembled onto one piece of material.
Presented as the smallest digital humidity and temperature sensor available, the SHT21 from Sensirion measures 3.0 x3.0 x 1.1 mm.
Although common in the data-communications industry, plugfests are less familiar to those of us who work in mobile communications.

Europe's largest event on Printed Electronics, the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2010 in Dresden, Germany in April, will reflect new trends in the subject such as carbon nanotubes in conductive paper and transistors, printing silicon for enhancing solar cells, for transistors and other uses and printing copper at a fraction of the cost of silver.
Las Vegas, Nevada and Mountain View, Calif. – Jan. 6, 2010 – NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. [NASDAQ: NETL], a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced that its Au1250® processor, a member of its Ultra Low-Power Alchemy® Processor family, has been selected by Samsung Electronics to power Samsung’s industry-leading SP-L305 Networked Video Projector for enterprises and small/midsized businesses. Samsung’s SP-L305 Projector will be showcased by NetLogic Microsystems at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Booth #35268.
Among its many virtues, Sci-Fi is very good at predicting real-world technology. The Steven Spielberg film, Minority Report, predicted two recent favorites—E-Ink and multi-touch. Ever since the latter hit theaters, scientists, researchers, engineers, and technophiles have been clamoring to reproduce the film’s futuristic touch screen technology.
In another sign of the tentative economic recovery, the country's largest trade show saw at least a small increase in attendees, after a large drop a year ago. According to preliminary figures, The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas had more than 120,000 attendees last week, the Consumer Electronics Association said Monday.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show last week, 3-D television, electronic readers and little laptops captured much of the attention. There were plenty of other interesting ideas on display, too, from 3-D printing to a wireless cell phone tether. Here are some of the gadgets most worth keeping an eye out for this year, and some that best deserve an arched eyebrow of amusement.
Every tradeshow has these: the strange products, human snafus, and general quirkiness that characterizes a large organized event. Some of these are no doubt intentional, an exaggerated attempt to grab some publicity. Others, as you'll see, are honest (yet hilarious) mistakes. And some are just plain out of the ordinary. Enjoy!

Like the Goths sacking Rome, the 3-D invasion has arrived. No longer a kitschy gimmick, the technology has matured, and the leading consumer manufacturers are banking on it. Indeed, 3-D was the unofficial theme of CES 2010—3-D demos littered the show floor, and all the big players (with notable exceptions) unveiled 3-D products. Could 2010 be the year that 3-D finally takes off?
