No lens? No problem for FlatCam

How thin can a camera be? Very, say Rice University researchers who have developed patented prototypes of their technological breakthrough.

GaN diodes with high current operations and a low turn-on voltage

Panasonic Corporation today announced that it developed gallium nitride (GaN) diodes that can not only operate at a high current that is four times greater than that tolerated by conventional silicon carbide (SiC) diodes, ...

The first broadband amplifier using vertical inductors

Researchers at the Dresden University of Technology in Germany have proposed the first broadband amplifier using vertical inductors. All circuits are built from passive components, and improved chip design requires passive-component ...

Smaller pixels, smaller thermal cameras for warfighters

The military uses long-wave infrared (LWIR) cameras as thermal imagers to detect humans at night. These cameras are usually mounted on vehicles as they are too large to be carried by a single warfighter and are too expensive ...

NEC Develops a Three-Dimensional Chip-Stacked Flexible Memory

NEC Corporation announced today the development of chip-stacked flexible memory, which can be used to achieve a new system-on-chip (SoC) architecture. The new SoC's architecture consists of separate logic (excluding embedded ...
