  • Device Uses Structural Color to Image-Characterize Ambient Gases

    Dec 22, 2022, 02:00 AM By: RSS Feed

    Researchers from the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS, Japan), Harvard University, and the University of Connecticut jointly designed and fabricated a simple device developed for imaging a gas injected into it — in multiple colors and in accordance with its gaseous properties — enabling chromatic discrimination of different gases. The device converts the pressure generated by an injected gas into structural color, thereby “imaging” it.

    The technology holds potential for a range of applications, including environmental monitoring, safety assurance, and health care.

    Almost all ambient gases are colorless and invisible, and only a few methods for imaging ambient gas flow have been developed....

  • Reducing the programming burden

    Dec 21, 2022, 10:34 AM By: RSS Feed

    The rising adoption of remote, edge computing and embedded systems has meant increasing workloads are moving to the edge. And with these technologies come even greater demand for versatile programming.

    “The need for programmability has never been greater,” said Dermot Hargaden, vice president and general manager for Intel’s Programmable Solutions Group, at the company’s FPGA Technology Day in November. “The need for pervasive compute, constant connectivity, for the parallelization that FPGAs can provide, is only going to grow.”

    In fact, the FPGA market grew from $6 billion in 2020 to $7 billion in 2021, according to Intel, and a projected compound annual growth rate of 12% through 2027 could...
