Communications ICs overtake computer sectorTHE COMMUNICATIONS IC market is forecast to exceed the computer IC market for the first time ever in 2013, according to IC Insights.This information is contained in the recently released Update to IC Insights’ IC Market Drivers 2013—A Study of Emerging and Major End-Use Applications Fueling Demand for Integrated Circuits.  According to the research firm, this shift is due to surging smartphone

2016 smartphones to be 3.5 times more powerful than 2014’sBASED on ARM’s claims, phones in 2016 will be 3.5 times more powerful than their counterparts in 2014, while consuming 75 percent less power. ARM has unveiled their next high-end smartphone processor core, the ARM Cortex-A72 based on 16nm lithography. 2014’s smartphone chips used 28nm.The 16nm-based chips will consume less power, while still delivering a performance boost. ARM al

Organic FET improvements bring flexible electronics closer to realityFLEXIBLE, paper-thin computer screens are another step closer to reality, researchers at Japan's National Institute for Materials Science say.The developments relate to organic field-effect transistors (OFETs): devices that incorporate organic semiconductors, amplify weak electronic signals, and either emit or receive light. OFETs were developed to produce low-cost, large-area e

STMicroelectronics boosts new microcontroller series with USB and larger Flash options STMicroelectronics has added USB connectivity and larger Flash options to its STM32F0 Value Line ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller series, enhancing support for cost-sensitive consumer, smart energy, communication gateway, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.The new entry-level 32-bit STM32F0 Value Line now includes six new devices to address 8-bit

China to have most robots in world by 2017: IFR FRANKFURT: China will have more robots operating in its production plants by 2017 than any other country as it cranks up automation of its car and electronics factories, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) said on Thursday. Already the biggest market in the $9.5 billion global robot trade -- or $29 billion including associated software, peripherals and systems engineering -- China lags fa
