Technology is proving integral to sporting success

Technology is proving integral to sporting success
Using the latest cutting edge technology in elite sports is something that has been well documented, and here at Electronic Specifier we have covered a variety of stories from an early warning system used in rugby to assist in detecting and avoiding concussions to football coaches using drones to give them an alternative view of training sessions.

Researchers realise quantum bits

Researchers realise quantum bits
A research team from Germany, France and Switzerland has realised quantum bits, short qubits, in a new form. One day, they might become the information units of quantum computers. To date, researchers have realised qubits in the form of individual electrons. However, this led to interferences and rendered the information carriers difficult to programme and read. The group has solved this problem by utilising electron holes as qubits, rather than electrons.

Marker pen enables you to draw an electric circuit

Marker pen enables you to draw an electric circuit
Creating electrical circuits doesn’t have to be a job for engineers any longer, as a pen has been created that allows you to turn your standard doodles into a fully functioning electrical circuit, from what feels like an ordinary market pen. A simple silver marker, using conductive properties of silver found in the ink, enables you draw your own circuits on specialised paper, without any wires or connectors, and importantly no mess.

Ultracapacitor market to reach $8.04bn by 2024

The global ultracapacitor market is expected to reach $8,049.1m by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research. These capacitors have the ability to rapidly charge to their maximum capacity and also discharge quickly up to zero-charge level. It also ensures safety of operation as it eliminates potential risk of explosion or self-ignition. Ultracapacitors have a high transient response time of 20µs and are also maintenance free, which can result in increasing adoption over the coming years.

Conductive inks: big players forced to go niche

IDTechEx Research has been following and analysing the conductive inks and pastes market for many years. It finds that this $1.3bn market (based on silver prices around mid-January 2016) is subject to major change with long-lasting consequences on the business models of many large incumbent suppliers. By Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Research Director, IDTechEx.

Price erosion negates sales growth to slow sensor market

Despite strong double-digit percentage increases in annual unit shipments, semiconductor sensor sales growth has become uncharacteristically lethargic because of steep price erosion in several major product categories. Strong unit demand is being fuelled by new wearable systems, greater automation in vehicles and the much-anticipated IoT, but sharply falling ASPs on accelerometers, gyroscope chips and magnetic-field measuring devices are capping annual growth of total sensor revenues in the low- to mid-single digit range, based on data in IC Insights’ 2016 O-S-D Report—A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes.
