The semiconductor industry is bringing new technologies to fruition ahead of schedule, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association technology roadmaps. The latest roadmap, which includes input from the international community, shows that the technology to make chips with 130-nanometer line widths should be available in 2002--a year earlier than the 1997 forecast predicted and two years earlier than was thought in 1994. In addition, 250-nm technology debuted in 1997--a year early--and 180-nm technology should come into its own next year. (Source: Semiconductor Industry Association)
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
