This issue of Microelectronics TOE covers recent developments in visible light communication, heads-up displays, wireless charging, wearables, and memory technology. Innovations profiled include innovative Li-Fi for wireless data transmission by Lucibel, compact ICs for wireless charging by Dialog Semiconductor PLC, wearables to measure oxygen levels by Humon, optical see-through display by Lumus Ltd., and a novel technology to shrink data storage by the Case Western Reserve University.
The Microelectronics TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures global electronics-related innovations and developments on a weekly basis. Developments are centred on electronics attributed by low power and cost, smaller size, better viewing, display and interface facilities, wireless connectivity, higher memory capacity, flexibility and wearables. Research focus themes include small footprint lightweight devices (CNTs, graphene), smart monitoring and control (touch and haptics), energy efficiency (LEDs, OLEDs, power and thermal management, energy harvesting), and high speed and improved conductivity devices (SiC, GaN, GaAs).
Miniaturization, a move toward lower power consumption, and the need for enhanced features are driving innovations in the electronics sector. Technology focus areas include semiconductor manufacturing and design, flexible electronics, 3D integration/IC, MEMS and NEMS, solid state lighting, advanced displays, nanoelectronics, wearable electronics, brain computer interface, advanced displays, near field communication, and next generation data storage or memory.
