This Microelectronics TOE profiles a novel display technology for augmented reality (AR) applications, gallium nitride (GaN)-based transistors for power conversion systems, an algorithm that turns blood analyzers into malaria screens, eliminating photodiodes’ amplification, and low latency wireless earbuds that consume low power.

This Microelectronics TechVision Opportunity Engine profiles developments in nanoelectronics, batteryless smart devices, holographic displays, quantum dots, and smart switch. Innovations include battery-free smart devices that ensure low maintenance costs, nanoscale-size electromechanical devices made with graphene, advanced holographic displays that enable immersive viewing for multiple people, a cadmium-free quantum dot technology that aids high quantum yield in solar windows, and a Bluetooth compatible smart switch that that enables smart lighting.

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.
