Monolithic terabyte memory IC

Crossbar, the RRAM specialist, says it has solved a major obstacle to RRAM’s commercialisation – what Crossbar calls ‘sneak path current’ which is akin to leakage in CMOS circuits but particularly destructive in RRAMS…

Zhaga moves on CoB standardisation

In a long-needed move, LED standards body Zhaga has picked up the baton and started work on a specification for chip-on-board (CoB) LED arrays. A Zhaga Book will specify a family of six rectangular or square LED modules with different dimensions. The rest of the content is…

Solderless LED module has CoB emitter

Sharp has combined three LED lighting components – a chip-on-board (CoB) emitter, holder and thermal interface – in one solderless assembly. The result is a more straight-forward way to build a high brightness LED assembly by attaching the module to its heat sink by two screws and push-fit…

Linear Tech on how to power LEDs and protect them

In this article, I would like to talk a little bit about LEDs, including why they will become the lighting source of choice, how to power them and also, how to protect them from the hazards they face within their respective implementations. These include high bay lighting, architectural lighting, outdoor…

Tesla is not Nvidia's only HPC processor

Graphics processor firm Nvidia sees a big opportunity for its GPUs in high performance computing (HPC), sometimes referred to as supercomputing. GPUs differ from the CPUs of Intel, IBM and AMD used in PCs and servers because they at every good at number-crunching. That is GPUs are designed to…
