Tattoo Bio-Batteries Produce Power from Sweat

August 15, 2014 -- Researchers University of California San Diego have designed a sensor in the form of a temporary tattoo that can both monitor a person's progress during exercise and the tattoo biobatteries can also produce power from the perspiration. The research team described their work at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS). ... read more

Four 400G Quandaries To Look Forward To

August 4, 2014 -- The 400 GbE (that’s Ethernet at 400 Gbits/s to you and me) task force has convened and hopes to deliver a 400GbE specification in Q1 of 2017. At this time, everything is on the table. In 400G Ethernet Effort Begins, John D’Ambrosia, Chair of the Ethernet Alliance and 400G Ethernet Group, said, "The key part is that this initial effort will spend significant time and energy on defining an architecture that will be flexible and enable future 400GbE implementations." He went on to say that, "diving into the technical details of each of these anticipated proposals will be part of the fun that awaits those ready for this project." ... read more

How to Reduce Automotive Software Development Risk

September 30, 2014, 12:00 noon EDT -- Automotive software development organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver code that's compliant to standards, protected from the threat of hackers, and free of defects that could result in expensive recalls. Traditional testing methods are falling by the wayside in favor of leaner, more effective techniques that get your software verified and validated faster. In this webinar, you'll learn how the industry's focus on functional safety and cyber security has organizations adopting automated tools for defect discovery and standards compliance – achieving faster time to market and reduced risk.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How to get ISO 26262 and MISRA compliance faster
  • How to protect your code from security threats
  • How static analysis reduces verification and validation effort

Speakers: Jamie Torok is a senior sales engineer for Klocwork, a Rogue Wave company. Jamie joined Klocwork in 2003 and has about 30 years of experience in the software industry. His background includes over 16 years of experience in software development tools, including static code analysis, dynamic code analysis, and quality assurance

How to Charge Supercapacitor Banks for Energy Storage

August 12, 2014 -- Supercapacitors have been adopted for energy storage in a variety of power management applications due to their intrinsic physical characteristics that provide advantages over traditional batteries. In automotive applications such as start-stop systems with regenerative braking, supercapacitors can provide the energy needed to engage the starter to restart the combustion engine as well as accept the kinetic energy recovered during braking. This paper addresses the challenges related to charging these large capacitors, and shows power system designers how to evaluate and select the best system configuration for backup energy storage. A supercapacitor charger is demonstrated, with waveforms and detailed interpretations presented. ... read more
