Electro-colour-changing ink is printed with water
niedziela, 20 sierpnia 2017 15:55

Georgia Tech chemists have developed water-based electrochromic film inks for colour-change applications such as auto-dimming rear-view car mirrors. “There were some hurdles to pulling it off,” said GaTech. “The finished product had to electrically operate comparable to films that are applied in an organic solvent, and also be water-resistant in spite of the water-based production.” The team of Professor John Reynolds is behind the development, using colorful and electroactive conjugated polymers - organic molecules that easily let go a few of their more loosely attached electrons, changing colour in the process.

Graphics card VRAM memory prices have risen 30% in August alone
sobota, 19 sierpnia 2017 08:00

First, they came for our DRAM, and now they come for our VRAM. Both Samsung and SK Hynix have bumped up their VRAM prices by more than 30% this month alone due to spiraling demand from phone manufacturers. The price hike comes as both SK Hynix and Samsung reallocate portions of their VGA RAM production capacities towards producing memory dedicated to the server and mobile markets. It’s basic economics - there’s less video memory being made, demand is higher than ever, and prices are therefore rising.
