The Microelectronics Technology Opportunity Engine for this month covers advancements in wearables, light-field-based VR headsets, antenna, quantum computing, micro-LED, and MPUs. Some of the innovations include virtual reality glasses, antenna with geostationary satellite architecture, wearables for Covid-19 detection, quantum computing, neural-network based chip, microLED for display, 5G modem, and advanced processors.
The Microelectronics Technology Opportunity Engine captures global electronics-related innovations and developments on a weekly basis. Developments are centred on electronics attributed by low power and cost, smaller size, better viewing, display and interface facilities, wireless connectivity, higher memory capacity, flexibility and wearables. Research focus themes include small footprint lightweight devices (CNTs, graphene), smart monitoring and control (touch and haptics), energy efficiency (LEDs, OLEDs, power and thermal management, energy harvesting), and high speed and improved conductivity devices (SiC, GaN, GaAs).
