source: nanotechweb news Could the inductor be redesigned in a fundamentally new way? Yes, according to new work by researchers in the US, Japan and China who have made the first high-performance inductors from intercalated graphene that work in the 10-50 GHz range thanks to the mechanism of kinetic inductance – rather than magnetic inductance […]
source: Phys.org article The Internet of Things is coming, that much we know. But not without components and chips that can handle the explosion of data that comes with IoT. In 2020, there will be 50 billion industrial internet sensors in place. A single autonomous device – a smartwatch, a cleaning robot, or a driverless […]
