Higher processor performance with microchannel cooler

The integration of microchannels into the silicon interposer allows for the first time to cool a processor also from the bottom and thereby increase the computing power. Credit: Fraunhofer IZM One of the limiting factors for the computing power of processors is the operating temperature. As part of the CarriCool project under the aegis of IBM, Fraunhofer researchers have developed a new, effective cooling method: By integrating microchannels into the silicon interposer it is for the first time possible to…

Detecting impurities on 3-D components

The fluorescence scanner – an imaging, inline measuring system – inspects components for impurities during the manufacturing process and identifies the exact point of contamination. Credit: © Photo Fraunhofer IPM Impurities adhering to the surface of components can cause problems in later stages of the production process – or even make the entire component useless. A new fluorescence scanner developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM allows specialists to inspect metallic parts for residues of grease, machining…

Drones controlled with brain-computer interface

But using multiple drones requires multiple human operators, and this presents a coordination problem. Now a single operator using emerging…

Internet Security Isn’t Child’s Play

Full disclosure:  my wife and I have never had children.  The closest we have come to full-time responsibility for someone younger than 80 was when our ten-year-old nephew came to stay with us for part of the summer of 2013.  So what I have to say about the hazards of buying smart Internet-connected toys for your kids is, from my point of view, entirely hypothetical and untouched by the seasoning of personal experience.  Nevertheless, it’s a new kind of problem…

New gesture control technology that can turn everyday objects into remote controls could revolutionise how we interact with televisions, and other screens — ScienceDaily

Imagine changing the channel of your TV simply by moving your cup of tea, adjusting the volume on a music player by rolling a toy car, or rotating a spatula to pause a cookery video on your tablet. New gesture control technology that can turn everyday objects into remote controls could revolutionise how we interact with televisions, and other screens — ending frustrating searches for remotes that have slipped down the side of sofa cushions. In a paper — ‘Matchpoint:…

Building a Network of Tunnels Underground to Ease the Flow of Traffic » Curious Cat Science and Engineering Blog

Building a Network of Tunnels Underground to Ease the Flow of Traffic Posted on October 1, 2017  Comments (0) “Roads must go 3D” – Elon Musk The Boring company plans to build the network of tunnels under the ground in order to combat traffic congestions all over United States. As seen in their presentation video, the idea is to construct a system of tunnels in which electric vehicles autonomously zip around cars, people and cargo transport in high speed under…

REFUND OF DUTY: SOME BASIC CONCEPTS

some times less duty is paid and some times more duty is paid by the assessee or more duty is ‘taken’ by the Department. In Central Excise Act, both situations are fairly dealt with. The Department is entitled recovery of duties short levied and short paid along with interest and penalty, (Sec 11A of ACT). Similarly the assessee is entitled for the claim of refund, if the Duty is paid more or if the assessee is entitled to get the…

Go Hack Nights at Cloudflare

At Cloudflare we’re extensively using the Go programming language to build a better Internet. Go is a free and open source programming language created by Google in 2007 and open sourced in 2009. Earlier this year, Go made news when it entered the list of top 10 programming languages on the TIOBE Index. Recently we launched an internal monthly Go Hack Night at our San Francisco office, open to anyone who works at Cloudflare regardless of their department or position.…

A New Cybersecurity Strategy for Europe

October is European Cybersecurity Month, an annual advocacy campaign to raise awareness of cyber risks among citizens and businesses, and to share best practices in cybersecurity. This year’s campaign was launched at an event in Estonia, a country which both holds the current Presidency seat of the European Council and is well known as being highly cyber aware and digitally savvy. It is fitting, therefore, that it is under Estonia’s Presidency that the European Commission announced a number of initiatives…

What’s coming in the next five years? — ScienceDaily

Single unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) directed by joysticks, radio controllers, and mobile phones are already accomplishing a variety of useful tasks, such as aerial photography and security patrols. But using multiple drones requires multiple human operators, and this presents a coordination problem. Now a single operator using emerging human-brain interfaces can control a swarm of drones, making possible new classes of applications, according to Panos Artemiadis, director of the Human-Oriented Robotics and Control (HORC) Lab at Arizona State University. Artemiadis…
