August may traditionally be a holiday month, but the electronics industry is busy picking up on the recovery as the most read articles on eeNews Europe show.

The latest data sees a recovery in the semiconductor market (more on that from Malcolm Penn at Future Horizons in early September), partly down to the excitement over AI chips. That is also boosting one area of the struggling memory market, notable high bandwidth memory (HBM). Data has also shown the impact of the US CHIPS and Science Act in stimulating $166bn of investment so far.

But with a bit of extra time in August, there is the opportunity to tinker with IoT and software defined radio designs.

August also saw innovation with the world’s largest wind turbine coming into operation, a new 84 qubit quantum processor from pioneer Rigetti and some tantalising advances in room temperature superconductor materials in the most read article in August.

The World’s Largest Wind Turbine Has Been Switched On

Rigetti launches 84qubit single chip quantum processor

Room temperature superconductor sees key patent

The patent in the US followed an ill-fated and ultimately disproved move by researchers in Korea that was a popular article in July, and highlights the intense interest in the race to develop functioning room temperature superconducting materials.
