The Raspberry Pi has always been a popular hobbyists platform. Now there's a new version, the Pi Zero, which is expected to go for an insane $5 (USD). Raspberry Pi has been making small, affordable computers for a while now, but it’s just gone and made things insanely cheap. Its latest miniature computer, the Pi Zero, will cost just $5.
Do you need more RAM? Samsung might have something for you. The company has developed a 128Gb DDR4 module. Samsung today announced that it has started mass production of 128GB DDR4 modules built using 'through silicon via' (TSV) technology. This is an industry first at this capacity; Samsung introduced the world's first 3D TSV DDR4 DRAM (64GB) back in 2014. It is claimed that the new memory modules represent both a breakthrough in capacity and in energy efficiency.
LiFi, a new method of data transmission that uses light pulses instead of radio waves (WiFi) has been successfully tested in Estonia. It requires a light source, such as a standard LED bulb, an internet connection and a photo detector. It was tested this week by Estonian start-up Velmenni, in Tallinn. Velmenni used a li-fi-enabled light bulb to transmit data at speeds of 1Gbps. Laboratory tests have shown theoretical speeds of up to 224Gbps.
USB. The ubiquitous interface is almost 20 years old. Here's a look at the history of USB, what it replaced, and what has failed to replace it.
OLED displays look fantastic, but still face some technological hurdles such as blue OLED lifespan, so it's great to see LG investing heavily in OLED technology. South Korea's LG Display said it will invest more than 10 trillion won ($8.71 billion) to build a large plant to make panels using organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels, raising its big bet on the ultra-clear display technology.
Rumors indicate that Apple may drop the venerable 3.5mm headphone jack from its upcoming iPhones in favor of a lightning port.
The Space resource and utilization act is drawing critics. U.S. President Barack Obama signed legislation on Wednesday providing a framework for space companies to mine ore from asteroids and other bodies, but legal critics are worried the measure could lead to violations of international law.
