20Mar17 – AnandTech published some further information about Intel’s 3D XPoint-based products. we will be keen to see the memory cell once the RE houses get parts.
10Mar17 – It seems obvious, but it is useful to remember that energy is all about conversion. One is converting energy stored in chemical bonds or in photons to another, more useful form.
03Mar17 – On the face of it this is an interesting development. They claim to have greatly improved on Li-ion batteries with an all solid-state battery.
21Feb17 – There was some press today around a molten silicon grid storage system. There were some intriguing cost and capacity claims. There are plenty of areas of technical intrigue also, including heating the silicon to ~1400 oC, minimizing heat loss and extracting the energy.
15Feb17 – It keeps going. There is even more chatter about the recent micro-LED patent. It seems to be vane to look for new insights. There are plenty of technical challenges associated with the integration of a fingerprint sensor into the display, but that would hurt the headline.
14Feb17 – There is more chatter about the possible integration of the home button/ fingerprint sensor into the display of future iPhones. In this case the technology considers so-called micro-LED technology. IR emitters and receivers are used for fingerprint reading.
