Cohesive Hardware/Software Solutions Accelerate Development of High Performance Data and Video Applications Telecommunications design continues its evolution toward higher bandwidth and performance, fueled by growth in Giga-bit Ethernet, wireless network systems and competitive business models incorporating multi-play network services. Similar data-rich applications characterize military design, with a broad spectrum of image-intensive applications powering modern warfare. With fewer troops on the ground, more use of reconnaissance gathered via autonomous vehicles, and real-time feeds informing command and operations, system developers must deliver more network-centric solutions and applications that offer ideal support to today's warfighter.
Ferroelectric Materials Could Revolutionize Data-Driven Devices

Electronic devices with unprecedented efficiency and data storage may someday run on ferroelectrics — remarkable materials that use built-in electric polarizations to read and write digital information, outperforming the magnets that are inside most popular data-driven technology. But ferroelectrics must first overcome a few key stumbling blocks, including a curious habit of "forgetting" stored data. Now, however, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered nanoscale asymmetries and charge preferences hidden within ferroelectrics that may explain their operational limits.

For decades now, the medical industry has been automating to improve throughput, yield, and performance of medical devices. Slide scanning, for example, has been automated to reduce the time required to process each sample and collect test data. Today, slide scanning is used in a variety of applications including cancer screening, cytometry, and cellometry. These systems utilize cameras to capture hundreds and even thousands of images of a single sample for future review, feature recognition, detection, or identification. The technologies used to execute these tasks are rapidly evolving and always changing. One recent development, motivated largely by the consumer peripheral market, promises to have a positive impact on the price-performance ratio of automated slide scanning solutions.
New 3D Designs Double Solar Power
