Now, Microsoft is mulling what it can extract about the physical world. On Monday, the company said that it is adding silicon to the second generation of the holographic processing unit – also called the HPU – for running machine learning tasks, translating signs in a foreign language or telling users where to buy products seen through the goggles.
NXP Semiconductors has sold its shares of Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation, an analog foundry based in Shanghai that fabricates chips for communications, consumer devices, and automobiles. The Dutch chip maker owned around 27.5% of ASMC. NXP has longstanding ties with the foundry. ASMC was founded by Philips Semiconductor in 1988 and spent years as an exclusive supplier for the Dutch giant, which spun off NXP a decade ago.
The world of power electronics witnessed a breakthrough in 1959 when Dawon Kahng and Martin Atalla invented the metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) transistor at Bell Labs. The first commercial MOSFET was released to production five years later. Since then, generations of MOSFET transistors have enabled power designers to achieve performance and density levels not possible with their bipolar predecessors.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
