A research team from Rice University has produced a nonvolatile, resistive random access memory (RRAM) technology that provides high-density storage up to 162 gigabits in crossbar memory arrays....More
In this latest Electronic Design image gallery, we examine some of the most intriguing Internet of Things (IoT) projects being developed by makers and engineers with support from crowdfunding websites.
Self-driving or autonomous vehicles will soon be providing independent transportation, minus the road rage. From China to Virginia to Berlin, from Baidu and Google to Apple and Ford, the race is on to realize a viable driverless car.
I have designed many early-stage proof-of-concept (POC) circuits, and observed many others do the same thing. It seems that there is often a huge disconnect between clients and engineers, though, when it comes to the goals of a POC design. In simple terms, an engineer worth his salt will overdesign an early POC circuit. This is because Murphy’s law always applies, and POCs are about overcoming unknowns. By overdesigning the circuit, one is able to prove the client’s product POC can be made to work, and quickly....More
