Development of Software Platform for Efficient Development of Robotic Systems by AIST

February 19, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

AIST Robot software platformRobotic research and development has been labeled as being highly inefficient, all due to the isolated nature of development, where each organization has developed all its related software from scratch. To make the matter worst, lack of compatibility and standard interfaces among systems prevents compatibility between developed resources without an explicit design, requiring a lot work for previously developed software reuse, which has resulted in an increased in overall cost of robotic system development, making it a major factor in dampening robots commercial viability. To address this issue major research program in many industrialized countries around the world are focusing on software platforms for robotic development. One such effort has been taken by AIST (Advance Industrial Science and Technology), by developing OpenRTM-aist. Read more

Development of New Nanostructure Fabric for Advanced Firefighting Suits

January 27, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · 3 Comments 

Teijin New nanoparticle fiberThe two basic features in fire fighting suits are their flame and heat barrier properties and comfort to alleviate fatigue and heatstroke. Up to now, combining these at a high level has been technically challenging. In respond to meet this challenge, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Teijin Techno Products Limited and Hosokawa Micron Corporation made a joint announcement on development of a new fabric incorporating nanostructure fiber targeted to be used in advanced firefighting suits which are expected to be 40% more effective in preventing burns in comparison to fabric with no nanostructure fiber, and 15% lighter than conventional heat-barrier linings. The nanostructure fiber is made through kneading of nanosized carbon particles into Technora Fiber, a Teijin Techno Products’ high performance para-aramid fiber offering high strength, heat resistance with dimensional stability and chemical resistance.

Development of Solar Cell with World’s Highest Conversion Efficiency by SHARP

October 22, 2009 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of Solar Cell with World’s Highest Conversion Efficiency by SHARP 

Achieving the highest possible solar energy conversion efficiency is at the heart of any solar cell research and development effort, and sharp is no stranger at this. Sharp started the development of its first solar cell back in 1967 by developing a solar cell for space application using single-crystal silicon. Much later on the company began its R&D on triple-junction compound solar cell to further improve efficiency, reduce weight, and increase durability of solar cells which was targeted for space applications. Through this effort in 2003 Sharp achieved 31.5% conversion efficiency. By today’s announcement using the same solar cell structure Sharp at least at the experimental level has achieved a 35.8% conversion efficiency rate. Read more

Air Purification a Mega Business in Japan

August 17, 2009 · Filed Under Editor's Corner · Comments Off on Air Purification a Mega Business in Japan 

With estimated 8 out of 10 individuals who suffer from one type of allergy or other during the year, which is mostly due to indoor type of allergens that in most cases can be easily controlled with introduction of air purification system in improving the indoor air quality. I don’t know about you but I get very confused with multitude of air purification products that are currently available in the market. Besides their fancy and glossy look they provide air purification through different method from the filter on our furnace if you happen to have one in Japan to HEPA air purifier as well as ionic air cleaners, and let’s not forget the ones with humidifying functions that supposedly is capable of washing the air, oh… yes the OZONE air cleaner type too to name a few. Well, in actuality air cleaning or should I say air purification business is an old business dated back to early 1800s in United States at the start of the industrial revolution. It was developed by John and Charles Dean in 1823 for a sole purpose of helping firefighters to overcome the dangers of smoke fumes. Then in 1845 came another version of mask protecting coal miners against the surrounding polluted air which was developed based on charcoal based filtration technology pretty much the same technology that is in use in today’s carbon based air cleaners. Since then air purification has taken a giant step to find itself in a mainstream market with its introduction for the residential use thanks to Hammes brothers in Switzerland whom went on developing and manufacturing residential air purifiers in 1971 which later on in 1990 the system was introduced in Mercedes-Benz automobiles.

Development of new High-k/Ge Gate Stack technology for 16 nm node by Toshiba

June 15, 2009 · Filed Under Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

Toshiba Corporation today made an announcement on the development of a gate stack and interlayer with high carrier mobility which can be applied to advanced metal-insulator-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MISFETs) in next generation LSIs. The ultra-thin, Equivalent Oxide Thickness (EOT) scalable high-k/Ge gate stack with strontium germanide (SrGex ) interlayer with high carrier mobility is a basic technology with potential for application in MISFETs at the 16 nm node and beyond. Equivalent Oxide Thickness is a number used to compare performance of high-k dielectric MOS gates with performance of SiO2 based MOS gates. It shows thickness of SiO2 gate oxide that is needed to obtain the same gate capacitance as the one obtained with thicker than SiO2 dielectric featuring higher dielectric. The current MISFET uses silicon for the channel, but inherent physical limitation of silicon would make it difficult to obtain a sufficient drive current in future scaled down MISFET. On the other hand germanium (Ge) as an alternative to Silicon features higher carrier mobility but significant technical challenges exist in implementing germanium in LSIs. One of such challenges is development of gate stack structures for Ge-MISFETs. There has been some reports in achieving high hole mobility by adopting germanium dioxide (GeO2) in the gate stack insulating layer, but due to its low dielectric constant, there still remains the challenge of reducing the EOT to 0.5 nm, which is required for the 16 nm node and beyond.

Making TFT Display by way of R2R process

December 8, 2008 · Filed Under Trendy Products · 1 Comment 

Roll-to-roll processing is a technology which is still in development but it provides a perfect mean to manufacture a flexible TFT display not just by significantly reducing the cost of manufacturing them but at the same time taking advantage of the flexible nature of the substrate that display materials are patterned onto. I am sure there are other applications that flexible nature of a product comes into the pictures where this method will be an effective way of manufacturing it. Read more
