Heilind Now Stocking WAGO SMD PCB Terminal Blocks - 2059 Series
August 22, 2014
Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking SMD PCB Terminal Blocks, 2059 Series, by WAGO Corp. WAGO's new 2059 SMT PCB terminal blocks offer a fast, cost-effective alternative to soldering leads and are an ideal solution for extremely small LED modules because of their compact size and ease of use. They are designed to fit the smallest installation spaces with a height of 2.7 mm, making it the smallest in WAGO's product range. The light color and low profile of the PCB terminal blocks substantially reduce on-board LED shadowing, as well.

Pairing old technologies with new for next generation electronic devices
August 22, 2014
Univesity College london (UCL) scientists have discovered a new method to efficiently generate and control currents based on the magnetic nature of electrons in semi-conducting materials, offering a radical way to develop a new generation of electronic devices. One promising approach to developing new technologies is to exploit the electron's tiny magnetic moment, or 'spin'. Electrons have two properties - charge and spin - and although current technologies use charge, it is thought that spin-based technologies have the potential to outperform the 'charge'-based technology of semiconductors for the storage and process of information.

Energy Efficiency Electrifies SEMICON Europa: Low Power and Power Electronics
August 22, 2014
The Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International issued the following news release: For the first time, SEMICON Europa 2014 will offer two new power-related technical forums -- Power Electronics Conference (8-9 October) and Low Power Conference (7-8 October). The exhibition and conferences in Grenoble will offer an in-depth look at the cutting-edge energy technology delivering new levels of energy efficiency in electronics. Energy efficiency is a key challenge and advances in power microelectronics, batteries, mobility, and energy harvesting systems are making power management smarter to reduce energy consumption. SEMICON Europa's two new Power Conferences focus on how innovators and their technologies are building energy-optimized applications. The theme of the Low Power Conference is "Highly Energy Efficient Nanotechnologies and Applications." The number of connected electronics devices is growing exponentially. According to Jean-Marc Chery, COO STMicroelectronics, to sustain this growth, the semiconductor industry needs a real breakthrough in energy efficiency -- both for connected devices and for the communication infrastructure. At the same time, the traditional planar bulk CMOS technology is plateauing in power consumption and performance beyond 28nm, so breakthrough solutions for energy efficient systems are mandatory to continue the growth.

North American Semiconductor Equipment Industry Posts July 2014 Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.07
August 22, 2014
The Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International issued the following news release: North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.41 billion in orders worldwide in July 2014 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.07, according to the July EMDS Book-to-Bill Report published today by SEMI. A book-to-bill of 1.07 means that $107 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.
