FEBRUARY 2018

It’s only February 2018 and already so much has happened in the tech world this year. This month’s issue covers the extraordinary scanner for clinical ultrasound co-founded by former MIT alumnus Nevada Sanchez, the new chip built by MIT researchers that reduces power encryption and increases speed, Intel’s new chip called Intel Xeon D-2100 processor and finally, we will talk about resistors and more specifically how to choose one.

Featured Product

Allied Components International’s 10G Base-T RJ45 connectors with integrated magnetics are designed and manufactured to comply with IEEE802.3 and ANSI X3.263 standards. Available in standard and industrial temperature ranges, they are widely used in PC card / Notebook applications, wireless cards, network exchangers, networking set-up boxes, routers, VOIP, terminal communication units, PC main boards and similar telecommunication products.

A Startup’s Low-Cost, Portable Scanner Generates Clinical-Quality Ultrasounds on Smartphones

Former Alumnus Nevada Sanchez has developed a low cost, handheld scanner that generates ultrasounds for clinical purpose. This device that resembles as an electric razor plugs into an iPhone lightning jack and will sell at about $2000 instead of those large stationary machines that cost anywhere from $15,000 to $100,000. Users will be doctors and clinicians who are more comfortable with the use of ultrasounds.

Energy-Efficient Encryption for the Internet of Things

MIT researchers have built a new special-purpose chip that uses only 1/400 as much power as software execution of the same protocols would. It also uses about 1/10 as much memory and executes 500 times faster. Most sensitive web transactions are protected by public-key cryptography. Public-key encryption protocols are complicated, and in computer networks, they’re executed by software. According to Xiaolin Lu, director of the internet of things (IOT) lab at Texas Instruments, this new chip has advantages that include power and cost, but from an industrial IOT perspective, it’s also a more user-friendly implementation.

Intel’s Latest Chip Designed for Computing at the Edge

The chip giant announced the Intel Xeon D-2100 processor this month. This chip could possibly make self-driving cars and virtual reality applications a part of our life sooner than expected. Instead of being sent to the cloud, the data will be stored in the chip and everything needed is built into the chip including computer, networking and storage. Intel believes it will be particularly useful for new 5G technologies.

Resistors: Types, Uses and How to Choose One

Resistors can be made of many different materials such as carbon, metal and foil, and each material has its own properties. A crucial fact to know when choosing a resistor is how much energy the resistor needs to dissipate.
