Ultra-low power chips make small robots more capable
An ultra-low power hybrid chip inspired by the brain could help give palm-sized robots the ability to collaborate and learn from their experiences.
Engineering developments for energy harvesting devices
Lorandt Fölkel, Technology Ambassador for Würth Elektronik eiSos
describes the products on display at the IDTechEx Show! Europe 2018.
Route to flexible electronics made from exotic materials
Engineers have developed a technique to fabricate ultrathin semiconducting films made from a host of exotic materials other than silicon. To demonstrate their technique, the researchers fabricated flexible films made from gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, and lithium fluoride — materials that exhibit better performance than silicon but until now have been prohibitively expensive to produce in functional devices.
Report on IDTechEx Show! USA 2017
The following article summarises some of the key observations made by IDTechEx analysts during the IDTechEx Show! It contains details of many of the companies demonstrating products during the exhibition, notable presentations given and summaries of relevant conversations and recent updates.
Medical MEMS & Sensors 2017
Collectively the material presented highlights how
MEMS as a field has enabled the development of highly functional,
integrated, miniaturized devices capable of providing the next generation
of healthcare and preventative medicine.
Low-power chip could make speech recognition ubiquitous
Whereas a cellphone running speech-recognition software might require about 1 watt of power, the new chip requires between 0.2 and 10 milliwatts, depending on the number of words it has to recognize.
New product announcements from the IDTechEx Show! exhibition hall
From the Exhibition Hall at the IDTechEx Show! in Santa Clara last week came a wide variety of new product announcements and press releases. Here we summarize some of the announcements.
Vibration energy harvesting: Where is the money?
Energy harvesting is off-grid production of electricity where it is needed using ambient energy such as wind, tide and waves or just vibration.
