X-Fab has added a process module to its wide voltage- and temperature-range 180nm mixed-signal process that supports a set of transistors with lower 1/f flicker noise.
Research by Professor John Rogers' group at the University of Illinois is leading to biodegradable electronics, for both defense and medical applications.
Following Mentor's acquisition of Tanner EDA, management expect the integration will help with a drive into IoT applications and systems that need to go beyond standard IC lithography.
Google has moved to on-body tests of the the smart-lens platform it has been developing for the past few years while the team continues to experiment with embedded LEDs that react to blinks to help warn diabetes sufferers of sudden changes in glucose levels.
'Bling' for fashionistas and the B Ark lot. Apple Watch limps as the S1 SIP fails to offer convincing battery life. Silicon shortfall still dogs wearables.
Wearable healthcare monitoring systems are a fast growing market, and could surge when clearer device approval regimes are introduced globally. Despite that brake on growth, companies and research organizations continue to innovate in anticipation. The subject of the first TDF Circuits, a graphics-led series looking at innovative implementations, is a subset of the Bio-potential Acquisition […]
