Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Efficient BIST architecture to detect defects in TSVsA new BIST (Built-in Self-Test) architecture has been developed to detect defects in TSVs (Through Silicon Vias) during the pre-bond phase. A simple circuit is included to detect defective TSVs affected by hard and/or weak defects, adding low area overhead and applying a simple and fast test methodology. The same circuit can be subsequently re-used for reconfiguration if a defective TSV has been detected. Partners to further develop the technology and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia posted this:Method for the preparation of linear polyacenes and building blocks of organic electronic components.A new synthetic method to access precursors of linear polyacenes has been developed. The method allows for the preparation of hydrogenated polyacenes which are readily converted into the corresponding polyacene. Prepared materials are useful starting materials in the preparation of organic field effect transistors (OFETs), used in organic electronics. The method paves the way to the preparation of more efficient OFET components.

Comprising both shunt and series elements (inverters), UPQC compensates for sags and swells, unbalance and distortion (harmonics)in the supply current and supply voltage respectively. UPQC delivers cost savings, increased reliability and enhanced electrical power network functionality. It also employs modular control software and novel techniques for load side short circuit protection of series inverters.
DIT Hothouse posted this:Strata Vision: Automated Scanning and Fault Detection for PPEDIT Hothouse is seeking a suitable commercial partner to take this technology to market. The establishment of a start-up software business or a licensing agreement with a clean room services company are two possible routes to market. Industry partners will have the added benefit of a highly experienced DIT project team to help deliver the final product. StrataVision has featured strongly in national (Enterprise Ireland) and international (Hong Kong PU) enterprise awards.
Universitat de València posted this:HyLED optospintronics devicesThe most innovative aspect of this innovation is that provides new optospintronic devices with low emission threshold voltages. Also, the new devices have the following advantages: Efficiency: light emission threshold voltages from 2 V. Stability: use of air-stable electrodes, with high work function. Spin valve properties (magnetoresistance): control of electrical properties by means of magnetic fields, for example light intensity and colour. Low cost: manufacture with commercial and readily available materials, using soluble deposition methods, much cheaper, and viable on a large scale, that evaporative deposition methods.
Universitat de València posted this:Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells based on ionic dyesThe use of ionic dyes leads to materials that do not suffer from compatibility issues and allows for a much more economic production of LECs. These dyes are known for many years and used in applications such as photographic films and recordable DVD discs, and are produced in large quantities at low cost. Some examples of suitable ionic organic dyes are cyanine, hemicyanine and squarilene dyes.
