Open source 25-core processor can be stringed into a 200,000-core computer

Researchers want to give a 25-core open-source processor called Piton some serious bite. The developers of the chip at Princeton University have in mind a 200,000-core computer crammed with 8,000 64-bit Piton chips. It won’t happen anytime soon, but that’s one possible usage scenario for Piton. The chip is designed to be flexible and quickly scalable, and will have to ensure the giant collection of cores ar ...

IBM scientists achieve storage memory breakthrough

The current memory landscape spans from venerable DRAM to hard disk drives to ubiquitous flash. But in the last several years PCM has attracted the industry's attention as a potential universal memory technology based on its combination of read/write speed, endurance, non-volatility and density. For example, PCM doesn't lose data when powered off, unlike DRAM, and the technology can endure at least 10 milli ...

Lithium-Ion Battery Warms Up, Operates In Subzero Temperatures

A new “all-climate” lithium-ion battery can rapidly heat itself to overcome freezing temperatures with little sacrifice in energy storage capacity and power, researchers say. This advance might enable applications for which high-performance batteries are needed in extremely cold temperatures, such as electric cars in cold climates, high-altitude drones, and space exploration. EC Power is now creating all-cl ...

Arduino Basics #5 – Add SD storage to Arduino

Arduino Uno’s microcontroller board is great, but the one thing it’s not overly generous with is storage. Having 32KB of program flash storage, 2KB of RAM and 1KB of programmable EEPROM space at your disposal is fine for many Arduino projects, but it’s not enough when you need to record data. But with a $2 microSD card reader module from eBay, you can quickly add up to 32GB of space. What’s more, FAT32 soft ...
