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.

Charger Drone in the air

Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 not only displays the smartphone and the latest gadgets from the world’s major vendors,but the latest technological innovations future.One of them Huawei, in addition to Huawei P10 show new handsets,Huawei P10 Plus and the latest Smartwatch, they also show the latest innovations for Drone technology.

Huawei demonstrated a unique idea, one of them is a great plan to help solve the problem of short battery life period of drones.Namely to create a wireless charging tower that can charge the battery Drone in the air without having to go down.This concept is part of Huawei X-Labs project in cooperation with China Mobile.

Previous research team identified two major problems when using drones:the battery capacity, and the GPS navigation signal interference from buildings.The proposed solution is to have a tower to improve GPS data,while providing wireless battery charging.

In the future, companies envision that the drone does not need to land at all to charge the battery. But it seems new technologies can present a few more years,because there is a new technology that enables wireless charging close to the device.Previously there had been a drone developed by wireless battery technology just that the drones can not fly away from the power source.

However, if the technology is growing rapidly,tower technology that enables wireless charge device so far is very useful for this project.

Create Your Digital Images to the real world with Robot Line-Us

Creating artwork or digital images are then printed. But it all depends on the quality of the printer, ink, and paper, and sometimes the results are not as expected.But all that could change for the better,because now will attend a small robot called Line-us.Then,what is the greatness of this little robot?

Line-us is a robot with arms that can hold a pen / pencil.Since it was accompanied by an application and Internet connectivity, Line-us will be able to follow the strokes that you make use of a stylus, finger, or mouse, which means that when you draw on the screen (or tablet),the robot will follow your movements in real-time and create whatever you’re doing right then and there.

This little robot is also able to use all kinds of pens, markers, and pencils, which means that this printer is more authentic as opposed to just relying spraying printer ink on the paper.Line-us is a pretty interesting project and the project is currently running a campaign on the site Kickstarter to raise funds. If you are interested in this project,can go directly to the Kickstarter page to find out the details of this unique project.
