This week on WDD’s HotSpot, brought to you by Components Corporation, Samsung's 3D Vertical-NAND flash memory is fabricated using an innovative vertical interconnect process technology; a surgeon uses live, point-of-view video via Google Glass; a man wants to replace the knife with a scanner in autopsies; and the importance of successful vibration testing.

Today’s episode features:

  • Samsung's 3D Vertical-NAND flash memory is fabricated using an innovative vertical interconnect process technology to link the 24-layer 3D cell array based on Samsung's 3D Charge Trap Flash (CTF) structure, representing a breakthrough in overcoming the density limit currently facing the planar NAND architecture and floating gates used in conventional flash memory.
  • A surgeon at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the first in the United States to consult with a distant colleague using live, point-of-view video from the operating room via Google Glass.
  • A Malaysian entrepreneur wants to replace the centuries-old traditional knife-bound autopsy with a scanner and a touchscreen computer.
  • Cascade Tek knows how essential vibration testing is to determine how a product will operate in its intended environment, so they have created an infograph to explain the three most important steps for a successful vibration test; defining, fixturing, and monitoring — and choosing the best lab to perform it.
