High Demand for Semiconductors in Pacemakers

Semiconductors are one of the important components in heart monitoring systems that are commonly referred to as pacemakers. Pacemakers are small computer-like monitors inserted into a chest cavity to regulate a natural heart rhythm that failed to do so on its own. Not only does the mechanism of the pacemaker must deliver the precise electric stimuli to the heart, it also must work in the specific human body environment.

An electric pacemaker consists of several parts that are usually constructed separately, and later put together. Most pacemaker manufacturers rely on different suppliers for the batteries, leads and the motherboard that contains all the electrical circuitry of the heart rate monitoring mechanism. The motherboard is put together with the semiconductor chips, resistors and other devices.

k-Space, a company specializing in thin-film analysis, is now not only associated with the renewable energy industries, providing the tools to control processes for solar panel production; it has become one of the integral players in providing tools for measuring thin-film thickness in semiconductors used for medical purposes. With the increasing number of elderly citizens with heart arrhythmia, this field is only going to continue its rapid growth, providing suppliers such as k-Space opportunities to collaborate with the medical industries.

Samsung and LG Develop Screen Panel with Four Curved Sides

The presence of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ indeed make a lot of people amazed by the design of Infinity Display it has.There is, however,a new report that says if Samsung is working on a new screen panel project that not only has two curved sides,it will come with four curvedsides.

That way, the top and bottom will also be curved and it will make the screen really bezel-less.The display will covermore than98% of the screen-to-body ratio on the front of the phone. Samsung Competitor,LG is also believed to be working on the same display panel.As reported Phonearena, Samsung will supply the display panel for the iPhone 8 is expected to slide this year.

The First House Built Using a 3D Printer

Who would have thought, 3D printers are not only applicable to small things. But it can also be used for large construction such as making a home.

The first house was made by a 3D printer is an innovation of the company Apis Cor. They make a 3D printer on-side only needs to be installed in the middle of the “prospective home”. So the cost can be reduced, and the time to set up the printer can be fast. Yes, it only takes one hour for the installation and the house is ready to be built!
