Patent strengthening is the term we use to refer to the process of achieving the greatest potential for value from a patent during the prosecution – before a patent is even granted.
TechInsights analysts have picked up Lenovo’s first 10nm CPU and taken it apart to take a look at the processor. This is the first time we’ve seem a Cannon Lake CPU in the wild, this is Intel’s much-maligned 10nm process and based on a 71mm Cannon Lake die.
Posted: June 12, 2018 Intel 10nm Logic Process Analysis TechInsights has found the long-awaited Cannon Lake - the Intel 10 nm logic process inside the i3-8121U CPU, used in the Lenovo IdeaPad330. This innovation boasts the following: Logic transistor density of 100.8 mega transistors per mm 2 ,
Posted: May 31, 2018 SK hynix 72L 3D NAND Analysis SK hynix claims to have created the industry’s first-ever 72-layer 256Gb 3D NAND flash. This innovation has a block size 50% larger compared to 48-layer 3D TLC chips, it has a lower programming time (tPROG), the memory bit density, with 3.55 Gb/mm 2
Unlike a conventional cigarette, the iQOS is an electronic device with circuitry that enables it to collect user information. A teardown analysis shows this could give the tobacco giant remarkable insight into people's smoking habits. Philip Morris says it only uses the data to fix malfunctions.
