Inexpensive chip-size satellites orbit Earth

A decade ago, while still a Ph.D. student at Cornell University, Zac Manchester imagined building chip-scale satellites that might work together to study Earth or explore space. On June 3, as NASA Ames Research Center announces ...

Vulnerability of cloud service hardware uncovered

Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are kind of like a computer manufacturer's Lego bricks: electronic components that can be employed in a more flexible way than other computer chips. Even large data centers that are ...

Experts develop nanolasers on silicon

Researchers at Cardiff University have shown tiny light-emitting nanolasers less than a tenth of the size of the width of a human hair can be integrated into silicon chip design.

Save the bees (and time and money) by creating a bee lawn

Flowering "bee lawns" that attract pollinators are a compromise between fastidious turf management and the more casual yard approach. They add biodiversity to the landscape and need less maintenance. That makes them cost-effective, ...

Wood consumption in energy generation continues to increase

In 2018, the consumption of wood fuels reached yet another record as a result of the increased use of black liquor produced by the forest industries. Heating and power plants consumed the same amount of solid wood fuels as ...

ARM amputation: Huawei's big chip problem

ARM technology is used in more than 130 billion chips worldwide and is ubiquitous in mobile devices, so losing access to the British company would be like losing a limb for China's embattled Huawei.
