Extending flexibility of STM32 Ecosystem

Extending flexibility of STM32 Ecosystem
STMicroelectronics continues to enhance flexibility for developers working with high-performance STM32F722/723 microcontrollers. A new-generation Discovery kit provides access to the STM32F723’s unique high-speed USB PHY, and a new STM32 Nucleo-144 board supports the STM32F722. With rich on-board features including MEMS microphones and sensors, an audio codec, and a display for user-interface development, the STM32 Discovery kits are ready to support creative demonstrations.

MCUs prevent accidental over-write

MCUs prevent accidental over-write
Microchip has announced the PIC16F15386 family, the most powerful launching point into the 8-bit PIC microcontroller (MCU) portfolio. In addition to Microchip’s current Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), this series includes a high-accuracy 32MHz internal oscillator and memory features such as Memory Access Partition (MAP) with bootloader-friendly write-protection to prevent accidental over-write.

Chip could make speech recognition ubiquitous in electronics

Chip could make speech recognition ubiquitous in electronics
In anticipation of the age of voice-controlled electronics, MIT researchers have built a low-power chip specialised for automatic speech recognition. Whereas a cellphone running speech-recognition software might require about 1 W of power, the new chip requires between 0.2 and 10 milliwatts, depending on the number of words it has to recognise. In a real-world application, that probably translates to a power savings of 90 to 99%, which could make voice control practical for relatively simple electronic devices.

Engineers develop millimetre-wave signal generator

Engineers develop millimetre-wave signal generator
Integrated circuit researchers at the University of California, Irvine have created a silicon microchip-based component that could make these and many other actions possible. Known as a "radiator," the tiny gadget emits millimetre-wave signals in the G band (110 to 300 gigahertz). Waves of this frequency easily penetrate solid surfaces and provide extremely sharp resolution, enabling more effective methods of biomedical and security scanning and imaging.

THz chips: a way of seeing through matter

THz chips: a way of seeing through matter
Electromagnetic pulses lasting one millionth of a millionth of a second may hold the key to advances in medical imaging, communications and drug development. But the pulses, called terahertz waves, have long required elaborate and expensive equipment to use. Now, researchers at Princeton University have drastically shrunk much of that equipment: moving from a tabletop setup with lasers and mirrors to a pair of microchips small enough to fit on a fingertip.

Pioneering chip extends sensors' battery life

Pioneering chip extends sensors' battery life
A low-cost chip that enables batteries in sensors to last longer, in some cases by over ten times, has been developed by engineers from the University of Bristol. Dr Bernard Stark and colleagues in the Bristol Electrical Energy Management Research Group based in the Merchant Venturers School of Engineering, have developed a voltage detector chip that requires only a few trillionths of a watt (picowatts) to activate other circuits.
