This issue of Microelectronics TOE covers recent developments in solid state lighting, wireless charging, 3D holography, wearables, and memory technology. Innovations profiled include flexible LED lighting panels by Lucent Optics Inc., predictive analysis of data storage systems by Nimble Storage Inc., wearable for real-time language translation by Lingmo International Pty. Ltd., nano-hologram suitable for 3D holography by RMIT University, and inductive charging of electric vehicles by Continental AG.
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.
