Toshiba Develops Dysprosium-free Samarium-Cobalt Magnet to Replace Heat-resistant Neodymium Magnet in Essential Applications
[ Aug. 2012 ]
Toshiba Corporation announced that the company has developed a high-iron concentration samarium-cobalt magnet that is free of dysprosium, a rare earth mineral that is in extremely short supply and increasingly expensive. At typical operating temperatures, the samarium-cobalt magnet has superior magnetic properties to the heat-resistant neodymium magnets currently used in motors.
Toshiba develops nano-lithographic probes for making and repairing masks for next generation semiconductors
[ July 2012 ]
Toshiba Corporation has developed an anti-wear nano-lithographic probe in collaboration with Tokyo University and BEANS laboratory. The probe is designed for making and repairing masks for next generation semiconductor production at 16- to 11-nanometers. The prototype probe demonstrates hundreds of times the durability of conventional probes.
Toshiba Develops NPEngine™, the World's First Hardware Engine that Directly Streams Video Content from SSD to IP Networks
[ Apr. 2012 ]
TOKYO-Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced the development of NPEngine™, the world's first hardware engine for streaming servers that directly delivers video content from SSD to IP networks, without accessing the server's CPU or memory resources. NPEngine can simultaneously deliver up to 64,000 high quality video streams at a rate of 40Gigabit per sec, far surpassing the performance of a typical server, and reducing power consumption, the number of servers and the space required.
