The Birth of Random-Access Memory

The Birth of Random-Access Memory

Whether you’re streaming a movie on Netflix, playing a video game, or just looking at digital photos, your computer is regularly dipping into its memory for instructions. Without random-access memory, a computer today can’t even boot up.Over the years, memory has been made up of vacuum tubes, glass tubes filled with mercury and, most recently, semiconductors.But the first computers didn’t have any reprogrammable memory at all. Until the late 1940s, every time a machine needed to change tasks, it had…

Gemini’s GHOST Captures Exquisite First Light Observations of a Bright, Chemically Rich Star

The image shows a representation of the full GHOST spectrum of HD 222925, a remarkably bright, chemically complex star. This star is a prime example of the type of object that GHOST will investigate. The spectrum measures light from around…

DC-DC Power Converters Benefit from Thermal Management by Heat Sinks

Designed to keep DC-DC power converters running within their safe operating temperatures, these heat sinks ship pre-assembled with a layer of phase change thermal interface material to enhance heat transfer into the sink. All heat sinks come with three sets … Continue reading → Source: Advanced Thermal Solutions…

How automated calibration can help service companies be more competitive

Service companies that perform calibrations for the process industries operate in a challenging environment. Not only is there a lot of competition, but contracts for customers are based on estimates, meaning that every additional hour of work directly affects the bottom line. Finding and retaining skilled calibration technicians is also a challenge. So, what can service companies do to make their quotations more accurate and ensure work is carried out as consistently and efficiently as possible? The answer is to…

Multiplexing Could Give Neural Networks a Big Boost

Just as multiplexing can help a single communication channel carry many signals at the same time, a new study reveals that multiplexing can help neural networks scan dozens of streams of data simultaneously, letting them greatly boost the rate at which they analyze information.
