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.

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.
Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
