Apple is in the mean of a hiring frenzy for engineers specializing in graphics technologies for a new “graphics team” to be based in London. The Californian tech giant is currently advertising at least 11 hardware engineering roles at its new UK Design Centre, based in London. They are designed to work on the development of GPUs in what the job ads describe as a “newly formed graphics team”.

The job ads on Apple’s corporate careers website have been posted on multiple times between December 2016 up to just last week. Apple has informed Imagination Technologies that it plans to stop using Imaginations GPU technologies.

SiFive known as RISC-V pioneer has released their newest innovative SoC (system on a chip) to enhance combination of systems. The latest SoC is formed on the similar base of the original RISC-V design but has been modified for greater capacity. The manufacture of the SoC is the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) that was built on a 180-nm process. Some of the main applications that the SoC can be incorporated into are microcontrollers, embedded, loT and wearable applications. The FE310 is equipped with the latest SiFive technology such as the E31 CPU Corplex, which holds a 32 bit RV32IMAC core that is able to perform at a 320MHz speed. The SoC is also equipped with

Many that thought Drone 3D printing is impossible. For many years this was something that was not considered possible until Philip Keane a PhD student launches a CubeSat company that researches the application of ULTEM 9085 traceable aerospace-grade. High strength FDM 3D printing at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. He designed what many people thought impossible. He designed a drone that was 3D printed with embedded electronics. Although embedded electronics were not a first and people are familiar with them, what was striking to this invention is the high temperature that was involved in this printing the temperature that is requires is at least 160C. that is only the minimum that is equipped and it goes up to 300C, therefore for him to design a quadcopter that is able to survive these high temperatures was a success and it considered one of the best practices.

Since 2009, Intel Corporation has invested in the Irish ICT research institute, Tyndall. Recently, Intel has committed to providing $1.5 million in additional funds over a 3-year period in order to expand the institute’s research capabilities. Intel already has other research firms in the United States working on semiconductor materials and other innovative machinery. Regardless of the research that those firms are providing, Tyndall can provide a different viewpoint and different methods of solving problems for Intel. Intel’s confidence in Tyndall generates from the quality of work the organization provides. From the display models to photonic applications, researchers such as Dr. Jim Freer and Brian Corbett are the foundation for the top class work that Tyndall is capable of. Bernie Capraro, a research manager at Intel Ireland has made a statement regarding the effectiveness of the programme. What assures both companies of the success in their research is the expected strong communication infrastructure, as researchers at Tyndall will work directly with Intel’s researchers in Portland, leaving little room for miscommunication.
