cfaed presents the new microchip "Tomahawk 2"

21.03.2014

The Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) presents its new microchip "Tomahawk 2" at the DATE’14 Conference in the International Congress Center Dresden from March 24 to 28, 2014.

 The new Tomahawk is extremely fast, energy-efficient and resilient. It is a heterogeneous multi-processor which can easily integrate very different kinds of devices.

The researchers of the Cluster of Excellence for microelectronics of Technische Universität Dresden use the new prototype to prepare the so-called ‘tactile internet’.

With this, very big data volumes shall be transmitted with high end-to-end latency and allow completely new applications, e.g. vehicles that are able to react automatically to any obstacles on the road.

Driving bumper to bumper would be possible as sensors would regulate the distance between. Other innovations might be used for example in the areas of telemedicine and E-Learning, in Google glass and smartphone applications.

“This is the next step of the digital revolution“, the Cluster coordinator Prof. Gerhard Fettweis says. He expects the realization to begin in 2020. However, powerful mobile networks are necessary to support the applications in the every-day use.

To realize the 5th generation of mobile communication, Technische Universität Dresden will collaborate with the London’s Kings College and the University of Surrey.

In February, the "Tomahawk2" was presented for the first time at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco. The first presentation of the new TUD microchip in Germany will be at the upcoming the “Design, Automation & Test in Europe Conference” (DATE’14) Conference in Dresden next week.

Im Focus: Hannover Messe 2015: Saving energy with smart façades

Glass-fronted office buildings are some of the biggest energy consumers, and regulating their temperature is a big job. Now a façade element developed by Fraunhofer researchers and designers for glass fronts is to reduce energy consumption by harnessing solar thermal energy. A demonstrator version will be on display at Hannover Messe.

In Germany, buildings account for almost 40 percent of all energy usage. Heating, cooling and ventilating homes, offices and public spaces is expensive – and...

Im Focus: Nonoxide ceramics open up new perspectives for the chemical and plant engineering

Outstanding chemical, thermal and tribological properties predestine silicon carbide for the production of ceramic components of high volume. A novel method now overcomes the procedural and technical limitations of conventional design methods for the production of components with large differences in wall thickness and demanding undercuts.

Extremely hard as diamond, shrinking-free manufacturing, resistance to chemicals, wear and temperatures up to 1300 °C: Silicon carbide (SiSiC) bundles all...

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...
