Lobachevsky University scientists under the supervision of Alexey Mikhailov, Head of the UNN PTRI Laboratory of Thin Film Physics and Technology, are working to develop an adaptive neural interface that combines, on the one hand, a living culture, and on the other, a neural network based […]

Resistive memory components the computer industry can’t resist

source: Phys org news Make way for some new memsistors. For years, the computer industry has sought memory technologies with higher endurance, lower cost, and better energy efficiency than commercial flash memories. Now, an international collaboration of scientists may have solved many of those challenges with the discovery of thin, molecular films that can store […]

Crystal Series and Parallel Resonances

source: EDN article A quartz crystal’s case will be stamped with the devices’ rated operating frequency, but that number is only an approximation to the real story which is that there is more than one crystal resonant frequency, even in the ideal case. (No pun intended.)
