Field emission display (FED) is a type of Flat Panel Display which is thinner, brighter, energy-efficient and cheaper display than liquid crystal display (LCD). FED also named as Nano Emissive Display (NED) consist of millions of accelerated electrons charged by very less voltage, compared with high voltage for large-screen, HD LCDs. These electron emitters are controlled by cold cathodes to generate colored light and are emitted towards phosphor plate and this phenomenon creates moving images. FED has a wide viewing angle and provides brightest color among plasma and other latest displays.
In recent decades, the increase in demand for low power solutions required the development of new algorithms and clever techniques, which could save energy and guarantee a long-lasting shelf life of a standalone solution powered by batteries. Three key parameters and components of a general electronic solution are the semiconductor, software, and power for operation.…
The economic success of a nation depends prominently on its evolution in communication and transportation. Communication is steadily growing its speed, while the same cannot be matched by transportation. There are currently 5 modes of transportation; road, rail, air and sea. Out of these road and sea are quite slow, air is fast but expensive and rail is not as fast as it needs to be. Therefore there is a need to bridge the technological as well as an economical gap between a cheap mode of transportation (say, land) and a fast mode of transportation (like air).

They have a big role to in the deep transformation of human activities impacting social, economic and working environment.
Altered Reality is the future of human-computer interaction as well of the human-reality interaction. Virtual reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality are the terms often cited in context of the emerging interactive technologies particularly in the mobile domain. Of all these forms, augmented reality and mixed reality are considered altered realities. While mixed reality is relatively a new concept, Augmented Reality has been through many developments, applications and successful commercial ventures.
The Powder Bed Fusion is another powder based 3D printing technique. Unlike the binder jet 3D printing that uses a binder liquid to glue together building material’s particles, in powder bed fusion techniques, the particles of building material for 3D part are fused together by the application of heat or electron beam.All the PBF techniques are similar in operation except that the method of fusing the powder material differs in them. In Selective Laser Sintering, a laser head is used to project high power laser beam on the powder material to melt the particles and fuse them together.
Binder jetting is one of the seven recognized standard 3D Printing processes. The technique is copyrighted by the name 3DP technology. It was developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1993. Later on, the license of the technology was obtained by Z Corporation in 1995.This is a powder based 3D printing technique and uses a powder like building material to be joined by liquid binder for 3D printing. In a typical apparatus for binder jetting, there are two chambers where one chamber is filled with powdered building material to feed into the other chamber and the second chamber is used for realizing the 3D model. The 3D model is built by gluing together the powdered building material using the liquid binder.
IoT, stands for Internet of things, term was first sprouted in the mind of Kevin Ashton at Auto-ID center at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1999. IoT is trending at very high pace in the scientist and researcher society. IoT alone holds a market potential of upto $14 trillion. By this fact we can assume what IoT hold inside for humanity. The IoT infrastructure consist of mainly 4 basic module: WSN or sensor Hub, wireless connectivity solution, cloud computing and storage solution and finally the user device Network. All these nodes can be PC or laptop, mobile device like phone or tablet or any other PDA or embedded computing device.
Cloud in simple word as we all understand is “storage and computing of data on the online server”. Actually there is nothing like “cloud” , its just a metaphor which symbolise the online or remoteness in the digital world. It is referred so by programmer and developer around the world to show the intermidiate medium in any network. Cloud does not exist in real but is a representation of the pool of resource used in the network to process any data.
There is no argument in that we humans love electricity. We love that stuff so much that you can get an idea about it just by walking out on the street. There is about trillions of money spent in setting up power stations and wires carrying electricity from where it is generated to our homes and offices. Not only this. We love batteries too! An object that gives us power for a while before ending up in the garbage.
Last 5-6 years, I am using MikroC Pro compiler for creating PIC experiments like LED interfacing, LCD interfacing. Earlier I tried MPLAB cross compiler also. I would like to share my experiences with readers.
None of us wants to hear that annoying humming sound of engine while travelling or unwanted noise while you are listening to your favorite songs or speaking with someone over the phone. May it be the headphones /earphones technology is equipped to remove out noise and give us a pleasant hearing experience. Noise Cancellation is one such efficient technique.
The development of an existing technology is measured is terms of increase in efficiency, self-sustainability and/or portability. Since the invention of the light bulb, we have always strived to find a better way to power it. First there was direct current, then alternating current; then the more portable sources like batteries, rechargeable batteries, fuel cells and technologies involving the use of alternative resources of energy (wind, solar, hydroelectric, etc.) to power electrical and electronic devices. But in the field of electronics, size is an important parameter as devices grow smaller and smaller every day whilst providing a greater amount of power and using lower input energy.
You might have seen some videos on the internet where physicists or scientist ‘levitates’ a disk in open air and it keeps itself locked in mid-air without any support. You must have wondered how that is even possible. The simple answer to your question is quantum physics.
How cool it would be when devices on your workbench are interconnected? Creating a personal space for yourself where one of your devices acts as a server or a hub and allows you to access any information from any of your devices!! Sounds cool right? It would be super awesome when such connections are wireless. You can relish many facilities like Internet, GPRS, etc. All this has a technical term “Personal Area Network (PAN)”.
Delivering one of its latest innovations, Linear Technology, home of the Analog Gurus, has expanded its expertise in linear IC products to create the industry’s highest performancedigital-to-analog converter(DAC), the LTC2000. End applications ranging from cable modems and other communications-based applications to test equipment and instrumentation will benefit from this leap in performance. The key to LTC2000’s leadership is in the generation of high frequency and broadbandsignals with a low noise floor and high spectral purity. As shown in figure 1, the spectral purity, as measured by the spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR), exceeds the competition by over 10dB at almost every frequency point.
A FinFET is classified as a type of multi-gate Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET). It was first developed at the University of Berkley, California by Chenming Hu and his colleagues. A multi-gate transistor incorporates more than one gate in to one single device. In FinFET, a thin silicon film wrapped over the conducting channel forms the body. The name has been derived from the fact that the structure, when viewed, looks like a set of fins. The thickness of the device determines the channel length of the device.
