An Australian research team has recorded the fastest ever internet speed from a single light source – an absolutely astounding 44.2 Terabits per second. That’s more than 44,000 times faster than the highest speed connection available to consumers today. This incredible feat was made possible by a new kind of optical chip.Continue ReadingCategory: Electronics, ScienceTags: Communications, Monash U
Apple has announced a new version of the iPhone SE, its most affordable iPhone model. The new iPhone SE shares many of the features of the now-discontinued iPhone 8 model, including its glass-backed design and single camera.Looking first at how the new second-generation iPhone SE compares to the original iPhone SE model, the new model is larger and now includes a 4.7" HDR-capable Retina HD displa
Computers can already boast superhuman sensory abilities in sight and hearing, but smell has been much more difficult. The human nose isn't a particularly good one compared to the rest of the animal kingdom, but it's still a complex piece of machinery, with around 450 different types of olfactory receptors.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Machine Learning, Electronic Nose, Sensors, Intel, S
Everything needs to be online nowadays, from vending machines to smart speakers, but that connectivity costs in terms of bulk and energy use. Now researchers have come up with a chip that gets devices connected with 5,000 times less power draw than normal.Continue ReadingCategory: Telecommunications, TechnologyTags: Smart Home, Internet of Things, Wi-Fi, UC San Diego
Sony recently published the spec sheets for six of its full-frame sensors, including a quad-bayer version of the 61MP chip found inside the Sony a7R IV. Given the ubiquity of Sony’s BSI-CMOS sensors, it’s possible we’ll see tweaked versions of these sensors in some next generation full-frame cameras.Sony showed off six sensors in all: the 48.9MP IMX311AQK, the 48.9MP IMX313AQK,
The human brain is still a far more powerful computer than anything it itself has created so far. It's no wonder then that engineers have recently focused on trying to emulate the structure of the brain with artificial synapses. Now, a team of researchers has made a new artificial synapse design that works using a light-based biotechnology technique called optogenetics... Continue Reading
Energy conservation is a no-brainer and more important than ever, but it's not just about environmental implications. If we're to successfully create smaller, better, more efficient technology, then the thermal energy that our gadgets waste needs to be put to much better use. This new device, which works at the nanoscale where the theoretical "blackbody limit" falls apart, could be the ans
