  1. Blazing Fast Terahertz Transmission Exceeds 100 Gigabits Per Second At 300 GHz

    Japanese scientists have built a terahertz (THz) transmitter capable of transferring data at speeds of 105 gigabits per second using the frequency range between 290 GHz and 315 GHz. That's ten times faster than fifth-generation mobile networks (5G) offer.

  2. Radio Devices To Save Rare Species From Poachers

    A joint project between conservationists and electronics experts at Kent has developed miniature radio devices in tamper-proof casings to protect rare species from poachers.

  3. NIST, Partners 'Cutting The Cord' (And Wires) From Factory Communication Networks

    Providing wireless communications in a factory, plant or other industrial environment these days means more than just helping employees talk with each other while they work.

  4. Researchers Turn To Liquid Metals For Agile Electronics

    Self-healing electronics, antennas that can change shape and function with the flick of a switch and clothing woven with conductive threads able to electrically connect devices may seem like science fiction fodder. But, for scientists at the Air Force Research Laboratory, these concepts are much closer to reality.

  5. All-Digital Phase-Locked Loop For IoT Radio Transceivers Introduced By imec, Holst Centre, And ROHM

    At the 2017 International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco (US), imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, Holst Centre (set up by imec and TNO) and ROHM recently presented an all-digital phase-locked loop (ADPLL) for Internet-of-Things (IoT) radio transceivers.

  6. Back To The Roots: Germanium Outperforms Silicon In Energy Efficient Transistors With n- And p- Conduction

    NaMLab and cfaed reached an important breakthrough in the development of energy-efficient electronic circuits using transistors based on germanium.

  7. First-Ever GPS Data Release To Boost Space-Weather Science

    The data comes from space-weather sensors developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory on board the nation’s Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites. 

  8. Inmarsat, Actility To Launch Global Low-Power IoT Network

    Satellite telecommunications company Inmarsat and Internet of Things (IoT) network solutions provider Actility are launching a global network of land-based, low-power IoT devices connected to a satellite communications network.
