The cost of design will continue to rise as the market's appetite for more complex and sophisticated electronics increases unabated—unless we do things differently.
Duke University researchers have developed a unique device to harvest energy wirelessly from microwave signals, operating similarly to a solar panel, but with the ability to convert practically any type of signal to electrical energy.
Struggling enterprise services provider and smartphone manufacturer Blackberry announced another change in management less than two years following the departure of long-time co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Basille.
Supply chains are fraught with risk, from natural disasters to other risks that have even higher probability of occurrence and potentially equal or greater impacts.
Like PC computing in the 80s, Internet computing in the 90s and mobile computing in the early 2000s, the Internet of Things will be the driving factor behind semiconductor solution development in this decade.
Medical represents a potentially high-growth market for industrial PCs, but will it bring the growth that industrial PC vendors are seeking?
The next wave of wearable computers will use increasingly efficient, low power displays, stretchable electronics and even energy harvesting to extend battery life as more functionality is incorporated into any given device.
The world market for programmable logic controllers was severely challenged in 2012 as it went through its first downturn since 2009. As a result, most major markets contracted. So where will the growth come from?
How confident are solar PV companies that their systems will last for 25 years? And how realistic are the assumptions they use to make that claim?
