Although everybody is talking about the energy turnaround, not much happens. The problem is missing political will for implementation. Because the necessesary technology is already available.
With the increasing demands on performance, energy efficiency and space, multi-core processors become increasingly interesting for developers. However, the transition to the multi-core worldpresents a great challenge, especially regarding software requirements.
Amongst developers it is common knowledge that standard modules simplify application development. Now new modules have become available which play this simplifying role for the current generation of ARM processors.
Actually technology never was of great importance for Ramona Mathews. But the first contact with Labview directed her towards National Instruments – although in a roundabout way.
Preventing body damage is the task of park assistance systems in cars. For this purpose they measure the distances in all directions with radar waves. The consortium SUCCESS has now managed to integrate the radar into millimeter-sized chips.
Due to increasing complexity and reduced physical access classic tests reach the limits of their capabilities. The combination of different test procedures in Embedded System Access (ESA) ensures that even the most complex systems can be tested adequately in a short time.
Power electronics are becoming more and more important regarding the world’s biggest challenges. While Silicon is about to reach its limits, new wide bandgap materials exploit new approaches to the power problems of the future – and help overcoming the gap between expectations and possibilities.
Using cables for powering electronic devices is annoying. And although the technology to overcome this annoyance is well-known for more than 100 years, nothing has happened – so far.
