Global 300mm wafer fab count to reach 121 in 2019

Global 300mm wafer fab count to reach 121 in 2019

The nine new fabs in 2019 would be the most opened in a single year since 12 were opened in 2007.  Another six are scheduled to open in 2020.  All of the fabs coming on-stream in 2019 and 2020 will be for DRAM and flash memory or for foundry capacity.

Underground maps to slash the cost of Lidar, says WaveSense

Underground maps to slash the cost of Lidar, says WaveSense

The company’s claim is that data extracted from scanning underground features (as deep as 3m underneath the road’s surface) is much more reliable than any data acquired optically by Lidars or cameras, which can be affected by fast changing weather conditions and urban landscapes.

Still, this novel sensing technology would presumably add to the costs of autonomous vehicles and data for the maps has yet to be extensively collected to make commercial sense, eeNews Europe argued when catching up with Tarik Bolat, CEO and Co-Founder of WaveSense.

Baidu is the newest member of the Open Compute Project (OCP), and the collaboration on the OCP AI Module (OAM) is intended to shorten the development of AI accelerators and speed up large scale adoption. 

Functional safety and its application to automated industrial cobots

Functional safety and its application to automated industrial cobots

Whereas industrial robot systems were traditionally separated from humans to safeguard against injury, HRC necessitates a workspace that is shared between robot and human operator. This article examines how safety relevant standards and traditional concepts of safety control are being adapted to meet the requirements of HRC systems.

Wartsila uses AR wearables for real time field test

Wärtsilä’s remote guidance service provides ship operators with real-time troubleshooting and technical advice assistance.

Using voice-controlled AR wearables and remote guidance software, ship crew members, field service engineers and shipyard personnel can communicate with shore-based experts anywhere in the world. The tests were carried out onboard the ‘Huckleberry Finn’, a RoRo ferry operated by TT-Lines, while sailing between Trelleborg, Sweden and Travemünde, Germany.

6A load switch integrates voltage detector

6A load switch integrates voltage detector

The actual switching element of the R5542 consists of an N-Channel MOSFET and is controlled by the LCE input to switch the power rails. Other advantages of a load switch are the possibility to set up a specific power-on sequence of various power supplies but also the total BOM count and total required board-space is significantly reduced. Measuring 1.68x1.28x0.65mm, the load switch consumes typically 10µA in On-mode and 1µA in Off-mode.
