Renesas triples capex to boost MCU output

Renesas  plans to boost capacity for high-end MCUs by 50% to the equivalent of 40,000 200mm wafers a month, mainly by securing more foundry capacity. It plans to increase capacity for low-end MCUs by about 70% to over 30,000 wafers per month, mainly by expanding in-house facilities. “We have been increasing supply, but demand has also been strong as manufacturers make ...

Liquid level sensor works with simple electronics

Researchers at Yokohama National University have created a liquid-based tilt sensor that only needs simple interface electronics – some 10MΩ resistors and a Microchip ATmega microcontroller in the demonstrator. Although simple in theory – an air bubble and conductive liquid sealed in a chamber surrounded by electrodes – electronic levels are more complex in practice. ...
