    Fujitsu Develops Hybrid Energy Harvesting Device for Generating Electricity from Heat and Light
    Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced that it has developed a new hybrid energy harvesting device that generates electricity from either heat or light. With this single device, it is possible to derive energy from two separate sources, which previously could only be handled by combining individual devices. Furthermore, because the cost of the hybrid device is economical, this technology paves the way to the widespread use of highly efficient energy harvesting devices. The new technology has great potential in the area of energy harvesting, which converts energy from the surrounding environment to electricity. Since there is no need for electrical wiring or battery replacements, this development could enable the use of sensors in previously unserved applications and regions. It also has great potential for powering a variety of sensor networks and medical-sensing technologies.

    Fujitsu Develops World's Highest-Performance Ultra-Low-Noise Transistor for Millimeter-Band Receivers
    Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced the development of an indium phosphide-based high electron mobility transistor (InP HEMT) using their proprietary "space cavity" structure that, operating at the millimeter-band frequency level of 94 GHz, reduces the noise level generated by the transistor by approximately 30% compared to previous technologies, to 0.7 decibels, resulting in the world's lowest noise levels. The novel noise-lowering technology will enable sensitivity enhancements in millimeter-band receivers, which in turn would enable the time required for image capture by image sensors - being deployed for anti-terrorist initiatives in major airports - to be reduced by nearly half. In addition, as the new technology can enable range extension by 20% of high-capacity wireless transmission distance on par with optical transmissions, wireless networks can be used in place of trunk lines in locations where it is difficult to install fiber-optic cabling, thereby helping to close the digital divide.

    Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and the University of Toronto today announced their joint development of a new processing method for transceiver chips used in gigabit-class high-speed data transmission over wirelines. The new technology employs digital circuitry to replace previously-required structures that used analog circuits. While analog processing require circuits that are adapted to the specifications of a signal being transmitted, such as transmission distance and amplitude, this new digital approach can perform these optimizations automatically, so that a single circuit could be used to accommodate a wide range of various wireline communications. Compared to conventional processing methods, this new digital-processing method makes it possible to shorten development periods by approximately half. It is anticipated that this new technology in the future could be applied to a variety of wireline communication applications, including 10 Gbps high-speed Ethernet in datacenters.
