LED lighting is still expensive. So what have industries everywhere done to take the cost out of more expensive technologies?: Make it a service. That’s the idea behind Digital Lumens’ plan to offer LED lighting and energy management as a service rather than an equipment sale. The Boston startup intends to launch its service early next year, Tom Pincince, Digital Lumens’ CEO told us in an interview. The service plan will guarantee that adequate lighting will be around to enable employees to do their work. How to make LED lighting mainstream: make it a service — Cleantech News and Analysis

How Something You’ve Never Heard Of Is Changing Your World Editor’s Notes: John C. Zolper, Ph.D. is the Vice President of Research and Development at Raytheon, an American corporation with core manufacturing concentrations in weapons and military and commercial electronics. So yeah, neat stuff. I’ve got a riddle for you. What do Blu-ray disks, military radars and LED light bulbs have in common?
Pradeep's Point! i 7 Votes I was pointed out to a piece of news on TV, where a ruling chief minister of an Indian state apparently announced that he could make a particular state of India another Silicon Valley! Interesting!!

Nanowire LED - nLED Nanowires are fabricated columnar structures with diameters in the range of tens of nanometers and lengths on the order of hundreds of nanometers to micrometers. By comparison, the diameter of a human hair is about 500 times larger than a 100nm nanowire. Each nanowire acts basically as an individual light-emitting diode (LED). Glō’s nLEDs can produce light of any color in the visible spectrum, ranging from deep blue to red, with industry-standard semiconductor material and manufacturing equipment. glo AB: Innovative Swedish Technology

Intel's new 3-D transistors at 22nm. Intel has managed to keep pushing Moore’s Law by developing a 3-D transistor that allows the chipmaker to deliver ever smaller chips that will be more powerful, yet consume less energy. The race to build ever smaller chips to meet Moore’s Law ensures our electronics get more powerful and still decrease in costs every 18 months to two years. However, shrinking our chips has become more and more difficult and expensive, and people worried that we had reached a plateau. On Wednesday, Intel proved them wrong — for a few more years at least. With 3-D Transistors, Intel Keeps Moore’s Law Ticking
Intel, as it’s wont to do, overnight made a splashy unveiling of a new family of processors: the Atom Z6xx series, whose chips are much more powerful than current versions but consume less power. Why the hoopla? Apparently these chips, which run at over 1.5 GHz, can be used to power not only smartphones but also tablets. So as I usually do when a public company announces major news, I checked Intel’s stock price in pre-market trading: largely unchanged from its closing price the day before. Why Intel Will Be a Mobile Loser
Lyric Semiconductor, a Cambridge, Mass.-based startup that was spun out of MIT in 2006, today announced a revolutionary new approach to processing data called probability processing. It wants to make chips that are fit for a world drowning in information and dealing with data deluge. The company was started by Dr. Ben Vigoda, a chip industry veteran, and MIT Scientist and chip industry veteran David Reynolds.

Adapteva Pitches A Supercomputer For Your Phone The brains inside your smartphone are getting more power with the latest application processors having two processing cores to help speed up the delivery of web site load times and mobile gameplay. That’s pretty awesome, but Adapteva, a Lexington, Mass.-based startup wants to take that number higher — a lot higher. The startup has created a design (and also the actual chip) for a 64-core accelerator that will sit inside a tablet or smartphone to help offload work from the application processor or graphics engine and do more computing on the device as opposed to sending it over a cellular or Wi-Fi network. The concept of an accelerator is a familiar one in super computing, where the addition of a specialized massively multicore chip, such as a graphics processor or custom chip, is becoming more common. But unlike a GPU, the 64-core Adapteva chip only operates at one watt.

What Arduino can do Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer (e.g.
