New manufacturing process for SiC power devices opens market to more competition

Silicon carbide power devices, like the one shown here, are more efficient than their silicon counterparts. Credit: NC State University Researchers from North Carolina State University are rolling out a new manufacturing process and chip design for silicon carbide (SiC) power devices, which can be used to more efficiently regulate power in technologies that use electronics. The process – called PRESiCE – was developed with support from the PowerAmerica Institute funded by the Department of Energy to make it easier…

Better, cheaper bio-ink may be used to create artificial organs

UBC Okanagan’s Keekyoung Kim has great hopes for the bio-ink he is researching in his lab. Credit: UBC Okanagan A new bio-ink that may support a more efficient and inexpensive fabrication of human tissues and organs has been created by researchers at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Keekyoung Kim, an assistant professor at UBC Okanagan’s School of Engineering, says this development can accelerate advances in regenerative medicine. Using techniques like 3D printing, scientists are creating bio-material products that function alongside living…

Move Photos from iPhone to PC without iTunes and WiFi – WinX MediaTrans

As iPhone 8/X was released on Sept.12, we are already geared up to witness this and anticipating the new version of this phone would bring a radical change to the company. The 10th anniversary of the device surely will be mesmerizing and we have already started our preparations for optimum usage of the new phone. There are numerous preparations that are needed to be done before moving to a new mobile device. There is to and fro transfer of photos,…

The next tech transportation race

In this Aug. 15, 2017 photo, computer scientist Mohamed Saad Ibn Seddik, of Sea Machines Robotics, uses a laptop to guide a boat outfitted with sensors and self-navigating software and capable of autonomous navigation in Boston Harbor. The boat still needs human oversight, but some of the world’s biggest maritime firms have committed to designing ships that won’t need any captains or crews – at least not on board.

Localizing Slack – Several People Are Coding

Localization is so easy! …said no one ever. This week, we launched French, German, and Spanish localization in Slack. I’d like to share some of the lessons learned, tooling, and processes we put in place to complete this project and build localization into our ongoing workflow. Handling Strings The first step in localizing Slack was to prepare the strings in our codebase for localization. While mobile platforms provide clear frameworks for localization that keep strings separate from code, our web…

DAAP grad puts ‘design doing’ into action with new sports lighting system

DAAP grad Barry Hutzel helped design Qualite’s GameChanger, a unique new modular sports lighting system. Credit: Craig Van Der Lende On May 24, 1935, Cincinnati’s Crosley Field illuminated for professional baseball’s first night game. University of Cincinnati alum Earl Payne, Eng. ’26, helped design that revolutionary lighting system—along with the original lighting layout for UC’s Nippert Stadium. More than 80 years later, another UC grad is helping to change the sports lighting game. Barry Hutzel graduated from UC’s College…

Understanding the prevalence of web traffic interception

This is a guest post by Elie Bursztein who writes about security and anti-abuse research. It was first published on his blog and has been lightly edited. This post summarizes how prevalent encrypted web traffic interception is and how it negatively affects online security according to a study published at NDSS 2017 authored by several researchers including the author of this post and Nick Sullivan of Cloudflare. We found that between 4% and 10% of the web’s encrypted traffic (HTTPS)…

Tumblr Engineering — Flow and TypeScript

One of the Core Web team’s goals at Tumblr is to reduce the number of runtime issues that we see in our React codebase. To help move some of those issues from runtime to compile time, I evaluated the two leading type systems, Flow and TypeScript, to see if they could give us more type safety. I did a bit of background reading about the differences between Flow and TypeScript to see what the community had to say about them.…
