Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that if the "Energiewende" - the ambitious switch from nuclear and carbon-based energy toward renewables - goes as planned it will be "another export hit". So far Europe's biggest economy has not been widely emulated on its radical path to a clean-energy future, but for businesses in the energy-efficiency sector, Merkel's prophecy is already a reality. Energy efficiency was a key theme at Hanover's industrial fair, one of the world's biggest, which ended on Friday. When it comes to machines, tools and systems that consume the least energy, German companies from world-famous Siemens and Bosch down to the country's highly specialised small- and medium sized enterprises often have the answer. Martin Lack can explain in great detail how his company, the Luetze family group, has developed a system that circulates air efficiently in power distribution systems to lower temperatures and avoid energy … [Read more...] about Energy efficiency boosts German tech exports
SAN DIEGO—With the increasing popularization of datacenters and other bandwidth hungry interconnect applications, today's bandwidth growth of short-distance optical networks demands data transmission speeds of more than 100 Gb/s, calling for the development of energy-efficient, multi-channel optical links with fast data transfer rates. Based on complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (COMS) technology—a standard low-cost, high-volume chip manufacturing technique used for most processors and chips today—a group of researchers from IBM Research in Zurich, Switzerland, together with a consortium working under the EU-funded project "ADDAPT," have demonstrated a novel optical receiver (RX) that can achieve an aggregate bandwidth of 160 Gb/s through four optical fibers. This is not only the fastest data transmission speed to date, but the newly developed optical receiver also features the link power-on/off functionality and can wake-up and achieve phase-lock in eight … [Read more...] about IBM Reveals Novel Energy-Saving Optical Receiver With a New Record of Rapid Power-On/Off Time
