IoT Blockchain Demonstrators Part 1

When you hear “blockchain” it’s natural to immediately think of Bitcoin — and in turn its highly dynamic nature, along with specialist computer rigs that consume lots of energy in a race to mine more of the cryptocurrency. However, this is but one blockchain application and the secure, distributed ledger technology can be put to use in supporting a great many other applications. Such as, for example, the Internet of Things.

Give your Robot the Mobility Control of a real Mars Rover: Part 4

In Part 1 we covered the theory behind PID control; Part 2 we discussed the practical issues of odometry and using PID for precise mobile robot navigation; Part 3 we looked at code and other features of practical rover design. Now, in our final blog we look at the number of wheels you will need and whether suspension is required - this depends on the type of terrain your robot will move on...


Mythic AI adopts RISC-V core from Codasip

Mythic was founded in 2012 as Isocline Engineering Corp. and is adopting an analog "processing-in-memory" approach to neural network implementation

The Mythic Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), which performs the inference step of deep neural networks inside the same flash memory array which stores the neural network’s weights and thereby delivers advantages in performance, cost, and power consumption compared with some more traditional systems that build inference processors in logic and move data to and from these processors.

Apple iPhones banned in China

The move is part of a multi-technology and multi-geography legal battle between smartphone chip supplier Qualcomm and leading smartphone vendor Apple, which increasingly wants to develop its own chips for use in its phones.

The Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court has granted two preliminary injunctions against four Chinese subsidiaries of Apple Inc., ordering them to immediately cease the importation, sale and offers for sale in China of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X, Qualcomm said.

Foundries' November sales wind down

TSMC's revenues for November 2018 were approximately NT$98.39 billion (about $3.18 billion), a decrease of 3.1 percent from October 2018 and an increase of 5.6 percent from November 2017. Revenues for January through November 2018 totaled NT$941.64 billion (about US$30.5 billion), an increase of 6.1 percent compared to the same period in 2017.

LeddarTech borrows $23 million for lidar R&D

The company's lidar technology, which is based on LED light emitted in very short pulses up to 100,000 times per second and capturing the backscatter, is gaining traction with tier-one automotive suppliers rapidly, LeddarTech said.

The bridge finance is expected to be repaid from sales at some point in the future. The financing consists of a revolving loan from Desjardins Group and a convertible note from existing shareholders.

3.00mm pitch power connectors deliver 10A current capacity

Thanks to the patented 4-finger contact design employed, which relies on a Beryllium Copper alloy construction, connection integrity is always maintained – even when these connectors are subjected to high degrees of shock, vibration, or other forms of mechanical stress. Despite their limited dimensions, the narrow pitch connectors have a 10A current rating, and are therefore very well optimized for use in systems where the performance expectations are exacting, but space constraints also need to be contended with.

Terabee signs Mouser Electronics for its global distribution

Through the agreement, Mouser is now shipping a variety of Terabee’s TeraRanger sensors including the TeraRanger Evo distance sensors. The 29×29mm modules are available in long-range (60m) or fast-data (600Hz) versions and require either a USB or I2C/UART backboard for power. The plug-and-play, eye-safe, and easy-to-use modules are ideal for drone altimeter, robotics distance sensing, proximity distance sensing and presence detection, and traffic monitoring sensing.
