Cognitive Computing Ready for Commercial Apps
 
With more than six years of R&D and over $50 million in investment, IBM has finally produced a spiking neural network IC dubbed TrueNorth. Implemented in a 28 nm CMOS process, it can perform sophisticated tasks akin to the human processing of sensory data. Now, to bring this cognitive computing technology into the commercial world, the technology giant is seeking customers and partners. This latest Synapse chip is described in a paper published in Science.

Integrated Pulser Enables Hand-held Ultrasound Imaging
 
STMicroelectronics has released a new multi-channel ultrasound pulser. Implemented in proprietary SOI-BCD6 process, it combines low-voltage CMOS logic, analog circuitry, and power stages on the same chip. Fast and symmetrical output voltage transitions allow sharp images to be obtained without the need for complex and costly image-processing algorithms.

Embedded Vision Drives New Chip Designs
 
In this EDACafe blog, Embedded Vision Alliance founder Jeff Bier discusses the role of computer vision in the development of next-generation system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs. Bier argues that many of the applications that will benefit from embedded vision are also cost- and/or power-sensitive. All of these factors justify a custom SoC design rather than an off-the-shelf solution, notes Bier.

SDR Platform Eases MIMO Radio Design
 
To simplify MIMO (multiple input/multiple output) radio designs, Analog Devices has introduced a software-defined radio (SDR) prototyping platform using dual 2 x 2 AD9361 RF transceivers and a Xilinx FPGA. The kit incorporates all the support circuitry and is aided by simulation tools from the MathWorks, hardware description language (HDL) code, and device drivers for FPGA.

Automating Data Exchange Improves Work Flow
 
According to Theorem Solutions, automating CAD data exchange helps to eliminate manual intervention and monitoring, and enables companies to maximize their investments in software and hardware resources. With data exchange automation, operators no longer have to go into each individual CAD application and translate it. This saves a significant number of operator hours while eliminating human error from the process.

A New Spin for Electronic Devices
 
Electrons have two primary properties — charge and spin. Although current technologies use charge, it is thought that spin-based technologies have the potential to outperform the charge-based technology of semiconductors for storage and processing of information. One way to achieve this is by the spin-Hall effect, which is being researched by University College London scientists who are keen to understand the mechanisms of the effect.

Are Robots a Threat to Your Job?
 
In this Design News blog, senior technical editor Ann R. Thryft argues that robots are not taking away jobs, but helping humans by carrying out tasks that are dull, dirty and dangerous, known as "three D's" of robotics. But, lately a fourth D has been added for "demanding," for tasks that require more strength than humans can provide.
