MY - Citizen Journalist Malaysia According to Steven Gan, the chief editor and co-founder of Malaysiakini, there is an increasing trend of violence towards journalists in Malaysia. This is evidenced by the dozens of journalists who were either beaten up, detained or had their equipment confiscated during last Saturday’s Bersih 3 Rally in Kuala Lumpur. Gan was speaking to a congregation of journalists from various Medias and supporters who had gathered in front of the Malaysiakini headquarters this morning to commemorate the World Press Freedom Day 2012. Loading ... Researchers Create Flexible Memory Device After flexible displays, the memory chip is the latest electronic component to get twisted and bent. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have developed a flexible memory device that they say is inexpensive and can be easily manufactured. “We have fabricated a lightweight memory device,” says Nadine Gergel-Hackett, one of the researchers on the project, “that uses transparencies seen in overhead projectors as the material for its flexible sheet.” Flexible components are a promising new area for electronics makers who envision using them for bendable, flexible, rollable, or merely curved devices that contain electronic circuits. Current silicon and circuit-board technology requires components to be flat and rigid.

Flexible electronics An Olympus Stylus camera without the case, showing the flex circuit assembly. Tightly assembled electronic packages, where electrical connections are required in 3 axes, such as cameras (static application).Electrical connections where the assembly is required to flex during its normal use, such as folding cell phones (dynamic application).Electrical connections between sub-assemblies to replace wire harnesses, which are heavier and bulkier, such as in cars, rockets and satellites.Electrical connections where board thickness or space constraints are driving factors. Applications[edit] Flex circuits are often used as connectors in various applications where flexibility, space savings, or production constraints limit the serviceability of rigid circuit boards or hand wiring. A common application of flex circuits is in computer keyboards; most keyboards use flex circuits for the switch matrix. In LCD fabrication, glass is used as a substrate.
