Avionics IV. Flight data communication and registrars (6)

26pav

Aircraft navigation is the science about the means and tools of controlling aircrafts while flying from one point on earth’s surface to another according to the trajectory selected in time and space.  Flight data are pilots‘conversations with each other, communication with satellites, the ground services and the cockpit noise (background). Aircraft engine speed, engine gas temperature, vibration level, the aerodynamic surfaces and chassis bearings, fuel supply, fuel, oil and hydraulic fluid pressure, and many dozens of other aircraft systems parameters are called the flight data. (End, Begining  N0.20 ) Continue reading “Avionics IV.

IBM is developing 10,000 times faster graphene chip

ibm research gfet construction ikon1

IBM builds graphene chip that’s 10,000 times faster, using standard CMOS processes. Engineers at IBM Research have built the world’s most advanced graphene-based chip, with performance that’s 10,000 times better than previous graphene ICs. The key to the breakthrough is a new manufacturing technique that allows the graphene to be deposited on the chip without it being damaged (something that has heretofore been very hard to achieve).
