Always Innovating MeCam is a $49 Voice-Controlled Nanocopter Camera

Earlier today, I’ve posted a list of some interesting sessions for the upcoming ELC 2013, and one of the talk entitled “Lessons Learned in Designing a Self-video Self-hovering Nano Copter” by Gregoire Gentil, Always Innovating CEO, caught my attention. In this presentation, he will talk about the technical challenges the company encountered when they designed MeCam, a self video nano …

Micro-Motion Systems Enable New Technology

Micro-motion systems are advancing the performance and availability of optical systems used in applications, including facial recognition, iris scanning, DNA testing, and advanced medical diagnostics. Auto focus, used in biometric iris scanning, provides an increased field of focus for rapid capture at variable distances, and enables faster, less obtrusive detection systems with very high accuracy. Along with advancements in microfluidics-based …

Will LDE Stand Between You And Your Next Smart Device?

Mobility is the key driver for today’s consumer. Successful applications must provide technology integration, high bandwidth, and low power. Compared to 28 nm, 20 nm potentially provides upwards of 20% improved performance, 30% power savings, and a 50% area reduction that allows designers to place between 8 billion and 12 billion transistors on a single system-on-chip (SoC). 20-nm devices will …
