Finnish IP developer Minima Processor has announced ultra-low power technology for near-threshold voltage design that uses dynamic margining to minimise energy consumption in SoCs while maintaining yield.Continue reading →
Working in an underground laboratory with 1m thick concrete walls, scientists from the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) have measured Planck’s Constant with a precision of 9.1 parts per billion.Continue reading →
The Vietnam War ended more than 40 years ago. But for those who once served overseas, there is a newly emerging health problem.
Between 1964-1973, more than 2.7 million young Americans served in Vietnam. This represents almost 10 percent…
CEA-Leti, one of the largest micro- and nanotechnologies research institutes in Europe, lost its head recently, but recovered by naming Emmanuel Sabonnadiere as CEO, succeeding Marie-Noelle Semeria. CEA-Leti has provided no explanation of Semeria’s con…Continue reading →
The growing Internet of Things is opening up a new range of jobs that require specific IoT skills–and we’re already seeing a shortage of qualified candidates.Continue reading →
nanoCAD is free CAD software that can be used for any purpose, but to use it for anything other than education and evaluation purposes, you must register and activate the software, or you’ll only have access to the demo version. This means that a…Continue reading →
