Tachyum Joins Intel, AMD, and nVidia With New Headquarters in Santa Clara

Tachyum, a semiconductor startup and developer of the world’s first Universal Processor platform, today announced the opening of its new, larger corporate headquarters in Santa Clara to better accommodate the rapidly growing number of customers, partners, vendors and its growing personnel ranks. The new offices are located at 2520 Mission College Blvd, Suite 201, Santa Clara CA 95054. Tachyum’s new facilities will better enable the company to finish development, start marketing and selling its disruptive products that tackle the most pressing global issues in data centers, AI, telecommunications, edge computing and mobility today.

Illinois Researchers Develop New Framework For Nanoantenna Light Absorption

Harnessing light’s energy into nanoscale volumes requires novel engineering approaches to overcome a fundamental barrier known as the “diffraction limit.” However, University of Illinois researchers have breached this barrier by developing nanoantennas that pack the energy captured from light sources, such as LEDs, into particles with nanometer-scale diameters, making it possible to detect individual biomolecules, catalyze chemical reactions, and generate photons with desirable properties for quantum computing.

Nano Bulb Lights Novel Path

What may be viewed as the world’s smallest incandescent lightbulb is shining in a Rice University engineering laboratory with the promise of advances in sensing, photonics and perhaps computing platforms beyond the limitations of silicon. Gururaj Naik of Rice’s Brown School of Engineering and graduate student Chloe Doiron have assembled unconventional “selective thermal emitters” — collections of near-nanoscale materials that absorb heat and emit light.

The Future of ‘Extremely’ Energy-Efficient Circuits

Data centers are processing data and dispensing the results at astonishing rates and such robust systems require a significant amount of energy — so much energy, in fact, that information communication technology is projected to account for 20% of total energy consumption in the United States by 2020. To answer this demand, a team of researchers from Japan and the United States have developed a framework to reduce energy consumption while improving efficiency.

SEMICON Taiwan 2019 Opens with Smart Tech, Innovation, Digital Future in Spotlight

With Taiwan expected to lead the world in semiconductor equipment investments in 2019, SEMICON Taiwan 2019 opens today, gathering the world’s top technologists, visionaries and innovators for insights into the latest trends and opportunities across smart vertical markets including manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and data. September 18-20 at Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall I, in Taipei, SEMICON Taiwan 2019 spans the entire semiconductor and microelectronics supply chain – from design through systems.

Light and Sound In Silicon Chips: The Slower The Better

Integrated circuits in silicon enable our digital era. The capabilities of electronic circuits have been extended even further with the introduction of photonics: components for the generation, guiding and detection of light. Together, electronics and photonics support entire systems for data communication and processing, all on a chip. However, there are certain things that even electrical and optical signals can’t do simply because they move too fast.

New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul Announces Nanotronics’ New High-Tech Manufacturing Facility

Nanotronics together with New York New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, announced that Nanotronics will open a high-tech manufacturing center at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, creating 190 new jobs and investing $11 million.

Penn Engineers’ New Topological Insulator Reroutes Photonic ‘Traffic’ On the Fly

Dynamic data routing could make for faster photonic chips that use their entire footprint.

CEA-Leti and Orolia Announce FlexFusion, A Powerful Positioning & Navigation Technology

Leti and Orolia today announced a new sensor-data-fusion engine that ensures resilient positioning and navigation even in cases of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) jamming or spoofing.

Called FlexFusion, the algorithm technology processes data from GNSS, inertial management units (IMU) and odometers to provide precise positioning in all conditions
