Tesla is testing samples of a machine-learning chip that it developed in collaboration with Advanced Micro Devices. Tesla is working with AMD to refine its new chip, which will likely reduce its reliance on Nvidia. The chip was developed by Tesla’s Autopilot group, a team of about 50 engineers under Jim Keller, a veteran microprocessor […]Read more "Tesla and AMD to develop its own A.I. chip for self-driving cars"
DRAM and NAND prices are going up and projected to rise further. Many people perceive the current memory market situation as a temporary imbalance between supply and demand. Or, they expect the market to settle when the manufacturing of 3D NAND flash reaches maturity. There is extreme competition in the NAND market. Based on expectations […]Read more "DRAM and NAND Prices Are Rising and Projected to Rise More"
Artificial intelligence in your hand, not in the cloud! Apple’s new iPhone X is the future of the smartphones, with new facial recognition and augmented reality features presented as the credentials to back up this claim. But these features wouldn’t be half as slick without a little bit of hidden futurism tucked away in the […]Read more "iPhone X’s A11 Bionic Neural Engine Chip Demonstrates Apple’s Approach to AI"
Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in “smart pills” to diagnose and treat diseases. This new technology’s location can be precisely identified within the body, something that was challenging before. A smart pill contains a one-square-millimeter sensor . Once swallowed, the sensor is activated by electrolytes within the body. […]Read more "New Microchip Technology to Track ‘Smart Pills’"
DRAM and NAND prices are going up and projected to rise further. Many people perceive the current memory market situation as a temporary imbalance between supply and demand. Or, they expect the market to settle when the manufacturing of 3D NAND flash reaches maturity. However, no one knows when DRAM supplies will improve. The demand: […]Read more "Memory Prices Are Climbing"
The widest range of boards are soon to be released to the market. They’re based on the latest Intel PSG technology, Stratix 10 GX and SoC. They’re the first to introduce 3 new Stratix 10 GX – and SoC compatible – boards, between September and end of 2017, for numerous needs and applications. Stratix 10 […]Read more "Stratix 10 GX and SoC Board Applications"
While the benefits of the “smart home” may be obvious to the electronics industry, things aren’t quite as clear to the consumer. The key to acceptance and adoption will be the applications and services the smart home will deliver. One critical enabler for that will be real-time sensing: allowing the Internet of Things (IoT) to […]Read more "Sensors Enable the Smart Home"
