Electronic–Photonic System on a Single Chip

Colorado Edu Journal of Nature One of the problems faced in data transported across short electrical wires is the limited bandwidth and power density, which creates a performance bottleneck in the semiconductor microchips.  This report covers how a scientist team has demonstrated these limitations can be overcome by using optical communications based on chip-scale electronic–photonic Read more about Electronic–Photonic System on a Single Chip[…]

A Brain-Computer Interface That Works Wirelessly

Full Story – MIT Technology Review – Antonio Regalado on January 14, 2015 Researchers at Brown University and Blackrock Microsystems early in 2015, commercialized a wireless device that can be attached to a person’s skull and transmit via radio thought commands collected from a brain implant.  The device was developed by a consortium, called BrainGate, Read more about A Brain-Computer Interface That Works Wirelessly[…]

Emerging Technologies

Over the last decade there have been many new technologies developed and entered into the public domain for development and commercialization.  Some arrive more or less as usable things; others mainly set the stage for innovations that emerge later. This series of articles will cover over 100 of these emerging technologies.  Along with the article Read more about Emerging Technologies[…]
