Researchers tout 1TB RRAM storage for future mobile devices

07/24, 6:43am

Rice University close to licensing deal with memory manufacturer over RRAM production method

Future smartphones could ship with storage measured in terabytes, according to researchers at Rice University. The team has spent five years working on a method to produce resistive RAM (RRAM) at room temperature and with a low voltage, rather than at the high temperatures or voltages it typically requires, with the technique likely to help current RRAM manufacturing efforts, allowing it to be included in devices in the future.

UK approves white space wireless with 2013 target

09/01, 1:45pm

Use would recylcle underutilized TV spectrum

Ofcom, the regulatory and competition authority for the UK communications industry, has approved the use of "white space," the unused segments that exist in the spectrum currently solely used by analog TV broadcasts, for wireless Internet access. The low frequency of this spectrum enables signals to travel long distances and penetrate walls at speeds up to 22Mbps, making it attractive for a wide range of new consumer applications including rural broadband, and behavior like Wi-Fi with up to twice the range of today’s technology.

First white space wireless goes live in Houston

04/20, 7:15pm

White space wireless already in live testing

Rice University had the distinction of being the first to implement the recently cleared white space wireless in real-world conditions. Houston restaurant worker Leticia Aguirre has been given a prototype connection that for the first time has given her a reliable Internet link in her area. The addition was part of a larger rollout that would give about 3,000 East Houston locals the long-range wireless access.
