Nuon Solar Team Interviewed by Dr Peter Harrop of IDTechEx

Posted by Charbax – November 20, 2016

Interview of Winnifred Noorlander from the Nuon Solar Team by Dr Peter Harrop of IDTechEx. Nuon Solar Team currently employs nine students from Delft University of Technology. Much of its innovation is constrained by the rules of the solar race such as being limited to 3sq. meters of GaAs or 6 sq. meters of single crystal silicon PV. Nonethelesss, innovative suspension has been developed of unusually small size to fit the aerodynamic shell. In past years they have tried concentrators and GaAs. Regenerative braking is the only viable regenerative harvesting within the rules. They have remarkably efficient traction motors at 96%. Power electronics is secret but they are aware of the potential of the new SiC and GaN power components not least in lightweighting and improving efficiency. They are interested in the Sabic lighter-weight polycarbonate cowl glazing. They do not yet have structural electronics beyond the PV forming the outer surface. The vehicles are entirely carbon fiber except the aluminium suspension. The racer is currently a mere 150 kg.

Mentor Graphics at ARM TechCon 2016 shows Games, Industrial Robots, Medical Devices and Security

Posted by Charbax – November 5, 2016

Ricardo Anguiano of Mentor Graphics describes a memory wall game demo built with the Nucleus RTOS and thirty six NXP FRDM-K64F boards and touchscreens, plus a Boundary Devices BD-SL-i.MX6 game controller which also runs the Nucleus RTOS. Phong Chau of Cepheid discusses their new GeneXpert Omni, a point of care molecular diagnostic system built with Mentor Embedded Linux. Also covered in the video is a Mentor Graphics industrial automation robot demo which runs both the safety-critical functionality and the HMI control running on the same SoC using hardware enforced separation with implications for safety certification feasibility and safety certification cost control. The video ends with a brief computer security discussion, how security doesn't lend itself to soundbites, and how the industry still makes the same security mistakes we were making since the 60s and how security applies to the Internet of Things and to the Automotive market.

The $80 Electric Car, Scooter board turned into a car by Hong Technology

Posted by Charbax – October 13, 2016

Add this $15 seat adapter to a $65 self-balancing scooter, and you've got a $80 electric car with about 20km range per charge and a quite high top speed. They say that it won't explode under you, and if you are a good driver you shouldn't end up under a car while using it. Beware though, it seems easy to accelerate to top-speed using this setup.
