Federico Faggin and Carver Mead founded Synaptics over thirty years ago to commercialize their ideas around building silicon that computes as effectively as the human brain. This focus on enabling devices to mimic human cognitive capabilities persists at Synaptics to this day. 

Younger engineers today may not know our co-founders, but they are industry giants. ...

三十多年前,弗得里克·法金先生(Federico Faggin)和卡沃·米德先生(Carver Mead)从事硅方面的研究,旨在开发计算能力不逊人脑的硅片;嗣后,两位创始人创立了新突思(Synaptics,以下简称新突思)公司,旨在将这一想法走向商业化。时至今日,新突思一直致力于使机械设备能够模仿人类的认知能力。

两位联合创始人可谓是业界巨擘,当然,如今的年轻工程师可能对他们并不熟悉。弗得里克·法金先生在英特尔开发了世界上第一款商用微处理器,这为他的事业铺平了道路。随后,他与人合伙创立了Zilog,这家公司在20世纪80年代制造了家用电脑广泛应用的Z80 8位微处理器。卡沃·米德先生是加州理工学院教授,他在晶体管超大规模集成(VLSI)方面进行了开创性的研究,这是现代微芯片的关键技术。他与人合著了第一本晶体管超大规模集成教科书,这本教科书已广泛沿用了数十年。之后,他开始探索将这些晶体管作为模拟器件用来模拟生物计算系统的潜力,开创了神经形态计算领域。...

Once again, the mobile phone display is the engine of change in the mobile phone market. Previous waves of change have brought capacitive touchscreens, high-resolution Full HD displays, and the integration of touch and display controllers. Now, the rate of innovation is accelerating once again, as smartphone manufacturers introduce new aspect ratios, new edge-to-edge infinity display designs with almost no bezel, and new biometric sensing...

1.3 billion years ago two black holes collapsed and merged, emitting a burst of energy orders of magnitude greater than anything our sun could ever generate. Today, that energy continues to propagate in the form of gravity waves, literally stretching and squeezing the very fabric of space. These displacements are incredibly small, making them impossible to observe. That is until September 14, 2015, when twin Laser Interferometer...
