Sandisk Integrated iSSD: The SSD Market shrinks.

Sometimes small news can be bigger than big news. Sandisk is lending support to miniaturizing IC embedded hard drives for small SSD sizes less, between 4Gb and 64GB. The SATA interfaced iSSD is designed for efficient integration with low power consumption and mobile/netbook type devices: Performance: Sequential R/W up to 160 MB/s / 100 MB/s […]

Sensor Watch: 6D Nano-Accelerometers, DHS Smartphone Chemical Detectors, and Datalogging Shirts

One of the big benefits that memristors properties fit well with are the emerging needs for distributed sensor technologies. Mesh networks of low power sensors with the ability to store threshold data through possible off-states are quickly becoming an important component in the Internet of Things and even more important as these sensors get linked […]

Nano Letters Journal: Memristor Brain Modeling

New research into the “memristor brain” (via the cat brain), (another name for modeling machine learning and pattern recognition on neuronal synapse architectures), will appear in this months NL journal (Journal of Nano Letters). University of Michigan researcher Wei Lu (giving an upcoming talk titled “Si Memristive Devices Applied to Memory and Neuromorphic Circuits” at […]
