GreenPeak Technologies has posted a new White Paper called “Sentrollers and the Internet of Things”. In this paper Sentrollers are defined as a new, all-encompassing term for sensors, actuators and controllers – the various devices that make up the new Internet of Things.
Yahoo rose 90 cents, or 3.6 percent, to close Tuesday at $26.07. It's the first time the stock has closed above $26 in nearly five years, continuing an upturn that began after Yahoo hired former Google executive Marissa Mayer as its CEO nearly 10 months ago. The shares have surged by 67 percent since Mayer's arrival.
Three-dimensional magnetic vortices were discovered by scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) within the scope of an international cooperation.
"We've done a lot of work to level the playing field so we can compete in the space industry," Martinez said in a statement. "This is just the first step in broadening the base out at the Spaceport and securing even more tenants. I'm proud to welcome SpaceX to New Mexico."
A new satellite hovering nearly 450 miles above the Earth appears to working flawlessly as it embarks on a 10-year mission to document the planet's surface, scientists and engineers at the U.S. Geological Survey's Earth Resources Observation and Science Center said Monday.
Signs are growing that the sustained surge in cyberattacks emanating from China is imperiling its relations with the U.S., lending urgency to fledgling efforts by both governments to engage on the issue. The Pentagon this week said China appeared to be cyberspying against the U.S. government, the first time it has made such an assertion in its annual report on Chinese military power.
The University of Florida has unveiled the state’s most powerful supercomputer, a machine that will help researchers find life-saving drugs, make decades-long weather forecasts and improve armor for troops. The HiPerGator supercomputer and recent tenfold increase in the size of the university’s data pipeline make UF one of the nation’s leading public universities in research computing.
AVX Corporation has extended its line of high-reliability board-to-board compression connectors for commercial, medical, and harsh industrial applications with the addition of an ultra-low-profile power connector. Featuring gold-plated beryllium copper (BeCu) contacts that are insert-molded within the insulator for location and mechanical stability.
Gowanda Electronics has introduced the non-magnetic molded RF inductor series, SMG1812. The dimensions of the new SMG1812 are 4.8 (L) x 3.4 (W) x 3.5 mm (H). The overall size is more than 40% smaller than Gowanda’s SMG3013 series (the industry’s smallest non-magnetic molded RF inductor series until now).
Imagine having the power of RF analysis right at your fingertips. Now you can master your wireless with a new generation of handheld touch tablet RF Analyzers from Kaltman Creations, the leader in RF Solutions for Pro-Audio Wireless. The RF-Vue is offered in several versions, but the flag ship model is the RF-Vue T10.
Advanced Power Electronics has announced the APE2902, a high-efficiency VFM Step-up DC-DC converter for small, low-input voltage or battery powered systems with ultra-low quiescent supply current. Devices can operate from a positive input voltage between the start-up voltage and VOUT and convert it to a higher output voltage.
A robot can struggle to discover objects in its surroundings when it relies on computer vision alone. But by taking advantage of all of the information available to it — an object's location, size, shape and even whether it can be lifted — a robot can continually discover and refine its understanding of objects, say researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have designed a low-cost, long-life battery that could enable solar and wind energy to become major suppliers to the electrical grid."For solar and wind power to be used in a significant way, we need a battery made of economical materials that are easy to scale and still efficient," said Yi Cui...
A team led by Professor Keon Jae Lee from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at KAIST has developed in vivo silicon-based flexible large scale integrated circuits (LSI) for bio-medical wireless communication.
A handheld diagnostic device that Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators first developed to diagnose cancer has been adapted to rapidly diagnose tuberculosis (TB) and other important infectious bacteria. Two papers appearing in the journals Nature Communications and Nature Nanotechnology...
