|LTE category 9 trial achieved download speeds of 410Mbps|
According to Huawei, the category 9 technology will improve download speeds for EE dramatically, allowing the operator to aggregate 20MHz of 1800MHz spectrum with another 20MHz of 2.66GHz, and a third carrier of 15MHz of 2.6GHz.
|Samsung to use 20nm process for 8Gb LPDDR4|
The 8-gigabit, low power double data rate 4 (LPDDR4) mobile dynamic random access memory (DRAM) is capable of data processing twice as fast as the predecessor, the LPDDR3, and is 40 percent more energy-efficient.
|Memory users are looking for performance and prices |
Customers want to hedge their bets with entire subsystems that will use the lowest-cost DRAM, whatever that may be, so they are looking for subsystems that can easily accommodate DDR3 in the immediate future, but will also be able to support DDR4 when it becomes cost-effective
|IoT is an MEMS world|
Global market shipments for industrial IoT equipment are expected to expand to 7.3 billion units in 2025, up from 1.8 billion in 2013. Such gear employs a range of MEMS device types including accelerometers, pressure sensors, timing components and microphones.
|North Korea Internet went dark Monday|
The mystery behind North Korea’s 9 1/2 -hour outage highlights a paradox of modern cyberwarfare: As attacks become more prominent, the combatants — and their motives — are becoming harder to identify.
|SK Hynix settles on NAND infringement with Toshiba|
Toshiba alleged in March that SK Hynix had obtained the technology through a former SanDisk employee who was working at the plant that Toshiba and the U.S. memory chip maker operate together in Yokkaichi.
|NAND prices to drop 10-15% |
NAND flash contract prices will continue their downward trend until the first quarter of 2015, due to a slowdown in demand coming from system OEMs and channel distributors, DRAMeXchange indicated. Prices are expected to fall 10-15% for all of the quarter.
|Would all-flash storage replace magnetic disk?|
They will want to apply Flash and magnetic storage in combination to achieve the maximum price/performance benefit possible. That means partnering with storage vendors that provide more than just an all-Flash array,
|Apple to drive developers towards 64bit apps|
Now Apple had sent out reminders to developers asking them to ensure that their apps are 64-bit compatible, and recently Apple has issued another reminder to developers informing them of their deadline which is by the 1st of June.
|Emerging memory technologies making headway|
MRAM technology would provide a non-volatile memory replacement for fast but volatile static and dynamic RAM (SRAM and DRAM). Resistive random access memory (RRAM) is another promising solid-state storage technology with the potential for displacing NAND flash memory sometime in the future.
|Machine to regenerate 3D printer plastic spools|
Start-up ReDeTec is promoting a desktop filament extruder. Dubbed the ProtoCycle. the unit comes complete with a built-in grinder, computer control, safety certification and real-time diameter feedback.
|Smart window adjust sunlight to save energy|
The NTU smart window however can be turned into a cool blue tint in bright daylight, cutting light penetration by about half, and then reverts back to clear glass at night or as required.
