  1. New twist on old technique could extract electricity from low-grade heatRead the original story

    Apr 19, 2018 | Electronics Weekly

    TEGs make electricity through the Seebeck effect, where different conductive materials in contact develop a potential difference across the contact point. Pyroelectric materials, in contrast, develop a potential across a crystal of one material due to electrons shifting as a consequence of heat-induced crystal lattice changes - the effect was first seen in the mineral tourmaline in the 18th century.

    Mar 12, 2018 | Electronics Weekly

    QuickLogic says there is strong synergy between the company's embedded FPGA initiative, its membership in the GlobalFoundries FDXcelerator Partner Program for 22FDX SoC design, with faster migration to FD-SOI from bulk nodes such as 40nm and 28nm. eFPGA customers using the 22FDX technology will be able to seamlessly integrate FPGA and open source processor technology on the same SoC, says QuickLogic.


  3. ISSCC: In-shoe navigation without GPSRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 14, 2018 | Electronics Weekly

    Revealed at the IEEE's annual International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco this week was a dead-reckoner for walkers that fits in the heel of a shoe, and accumulates an error of only 5.5m after a 3.1km stroll. It uses three-axis MEMS gyros and accelerometers - which would normally be far too drifty for navigation - enhanced by a shoe bottom-pressure sensor for drift and offset compensation.


  4. Alibaba to spend $15bn on R&DRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 17, 2017 | Electronics Weekly

    Alibaba is to spend $15 billion on R&D over the next three years in a programme called Alibaba DAMO Academy. Initially, the Academy will focus on the opening of seven research labs in China , the United States , Russia , Israel and Singapore.
