New radio technology connects USB devices wirelessly

Hanover, Germany - USB ports are practical. They can be used to connect a keyboard, printer or digital camera to a PC in seconds flat. The major drawback is the various cables that end up cluttering your workstation.

The good news: A new wireless technology may soon be ready to provide some relief in this area. It is known as Wireless USB, or WUSB for short. The first devices using the technology were presented in early March at the CeBIT computer fair. Even so, most consumers may not find it worthwhile to make the switch just yet.

New generation wireless mouse unveiled

New generation wireless mouse unveiledWellington, Mar 11: A new generation of wireless computer mouse has been introduced at the CeBit computer show in Hanover.

The Swiftpoint Slider, designed by Christchurch inventor Grant Odgers, is a wireless magnetic mouse which would work without a battery and is designed to slide over the keypad of a notebook computer.

The mouse will turn the computer itself into a mousepad as it is tracked by electromagnetic sensors fitted under the computer's keyboard.

Tiny semiconductors may provide rapid, long-lasting computer data storage

London, March 9: Computer Data StorageGerman and Turk researchers have shown that storing information into tiny semiconductors called quantum dots is just a matter of nanoseconds.

Dieter Bimberg, a researcher at the Technical University of Berlin who led the project, said that said that quantum dots could fill the gap left by modern-day computer memory by facilitating rapid and long-lasting information storage.

He said that memory based quantum dots can provide a storage speed nearly as fast as quick dynamic access memory (DRAM), which computer these days use for short-term memory.

Unique locks on microchips could help to reduce hardware piracy

Micro ChipWashington, March 6 : Computer engineers at the University of Michigan and Rice University have devised unique locks on microchips, which could help to substantially reduce hardware piracy.

The new technique, called EPIC (Ending Piracy of Integrated Circuits), would use locks on microchips, to head off this costly infringement.

According to the research team, each chip would have its own unique lock and key. The chip would securely communicate with the patent-holder to unlock itself, and it could operate only after being unlocked.

Nanolasers to pave way for inch-square 10-terabit hard drives

Washington, Dec 24 (ANI): Researchers at the Sakhrat Khizroev’s lab at the10 Tera Bite Hard Disk University of California, Riverside have developed nanolasers, which are so tiny that they point to a future where a 10-terabit hard drive is only one-inch square.

The lasers can concentrate light as small as 30 nanometers. This is 50 times the data density of today’s magnetic storage technology, a technology that has nearly reached its limit for continued miniaturization.

The study, led by Professor Dmitri Litvinov, plans to refine the nanolaser to produce light beams as small as five or 10 nanometers.
