Bosch Outlines Importance of Silicon Carbide in e-mobility

At a press event in Dresden, Germany, this month, Bosch outlined the importance of silicon carbide (SiC) in its electromobility vision, and how it would help overcome ‘range anxiety’ for electric vehicles. Bosch said SiC will set the pace in the power electronics in electric and hybrid vehicles. A major benefit of silicon carbide’s characteristics…

Startup Launches Its First Low Latency Edge AI Chip

GrAI Matter Labs (GML), a startup from Paris, has announced its first artificial intelligence (AI) processor for ultra-low latency and low power processing at the edge, which expects to start sampling this quarter. The GrAI One chip, based on its NeuronFlow technology, drastically reduces application latency according to the company; it reduces the end-to-end latencies…

Hybrid Chips for 5G Mobile

In most current devices, silicon-based CMOS chips are used for computing, but they prove to be inefficient for lighting and communications, resulting in performance loss and thermal problems. This is why the current 5G mobile devices on the market become very hot during use and turn off after a short time. The electronic devices of…

Smart Summon: Keeping Up with Elon

Tesla recently released a remote-valet feature called Smart Summon. When a Tesla Model 3 is summoned via a smartphone app, the vehicle drives in fully autonomous mode to pick up its owner, performing every trick in the AV playbook, from autonomous steering and braking to free-space analysis, path planning, and semantic segmentation — sort of.…

A New Way for Photonic Chips

The speed of multicore microprocessors, already used by high-performance computers, does not depend so much on the speed of a single core, but on time required for data transfer between the various cores. The copper interconnections used in today’s microprocessors cannot maintain the progress of the communication’s performance. Leading companies in the semiconductor industry such…
