Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive Infineon announced a new MEMS scanner chipset for automotive heads-up displays (HUD) and AR (augmented reality) eyeglasses. The design has MEMS mirror — which tilts and can work with laser beam scanner (LBS) projectors — and MEMS driver. The size and energy use is small and yet it projects content over a wider area of the windshield. A partnership between Ansys and IPG Automo... » read more

In-Memory Vs. Near-Memory Computing


New memory-centric chip technologies are emerging that promise to solve the bandwidth bottleneck issues in today’s systems. The idea behind these technologies is to bring the memory closer to the processing tasks to speed up the system. This concept isn’t new and the previous versions of the technology fell short. Moreover, it’s unclear if the new approaches will live up to their billi... » read more

State Of The IoT


The Internet of Things represents many things to many people, and many of them are not good. For some it is either a laughingstock or a punching bag. For IT, it is a subject of derision because securing all connected devices at the edge is a nightmare. But in all cases, the general consensus is that the IoT has failed to live up to expectations and a level of hype not seen since the dot-com ... » read more
