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.

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.
Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...
Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases
Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
Scaffolding and specialised workers help with the delivery – Heidelberg biochemists gain new insights into biogenesis
A type of scaffolding on which specialised workers ply their trade helps in the manufacturing process of the two subunits from which the ribosome – the protein...
Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging method which, for the first time, makes it possible to analyze hundreds of metabolites in fixed tissue samples. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Protocols, explain the new access to metabolic information, which will offer previously unexploited potential for tissue-based research and molecular diagnostics.
In biomedical research, working with tissue samples is indispensable because it permits insights into the biological reality of patients, for example, in...
Chemists at the University of Basel have succeeded in using computer simulations to elucidate transient structures in proteins. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, the researchers set out how computer simulations of details at the atomic level can be used to understand proteins’ modes of action.
Using computational chemistry, it is possible to characterize the motion of individual atoms of a molecule. Today, the latest simulation techniques allow...
