Mini-projectors – maximum performance

The number of mini-projector devotees keeps growing. The combination of a new kind of optical structure with high-performance LEDs enables completely new compact and brilliant lighting and projection systems.
Almost no public presentation today is made without projectors. As the years pass, these devices keep getting smaller – and handier. A market with immense growth potential: According to estimates, by 2012 up to 45 million units are expected to sell worldwide.
Important: The miniature projectors have to deliver sharp contrasts and clear colors. In his thesis project, „Design and realization of an ultraslim array projector,” Marcel Sieler of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena developed the bases for an entirely new …

IBM Announces Industry’s Densest, Fastest On-Chip Dynamic Memory in 32-Nanometer, Silicon-on-Insulator Technology

IBM has successfully developed a prototype of the semiconductor industry’s smallest, densest and fastest on-chip dynamic memory device in next-generation, 32-nanometer, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology that can offer improved speed, power savings and reliability for products ranging from servers to consumer electronics.
IBM’s SOI technology can provide up to a 30 percent chip performance improvement and 40 percent power reduction, compared to standard bulk silicon technology. SOI protects the transistors on the chip with a “blanket” of insulation that reduces electrical leakage, saving power and allowing current to flow through the circuit more efficiently, improving performance.
IBM has fabricated a test chip with an embedded dynamic random access memory (eDRAM) technology that features the industry’s smallest memory cell, …

BOSCH: Automotive Equipment – New generation of ESP® sensors

Bosch sensor now measures yaw rate and acceleration simultaneously SMI540: Two sensor elements in one housing
· Monoaxial yaw sensor combined with biaxial, linear acceleration sensor
· First micromechanical sensor that simultaneously measures yaw rate and acceleration in SOIC16x housing
· Tilt measurement along the vehicle’s longitudinal axis makes new applications possible
The Bosch SMI540 is the world’s first micromechanical inertial measurement unit for vehicle dynamics control in low-cost SOIC16w housing. The unit opens up new development possibilities for the ESP® electronic stability program. The 3-D sensor simultaneously monitors three of a vehicle’s movement axes – two acceleration or inclination axes (ax, ay), and one axis of rotation (Ωz). Until now, at least two separate sensors were required for …
