Excerpt:

The smallest complete radar system in the world — measuring less than half an inch on each side — was squeezed into a low-cost computer chip recently, a European Union team of scientists said. The Success project, nine academic and industrial partners across Europe, spent three years working on the chip package, with $3. 9 million in funding from the European Commission. And in this case, smaller is better. ‘In this area, size matters a lot. ‘- Christoph Scheytt from IHP Microelectronics “In this area, size matters a lot,” said Christoph Scheytt from IHP Microelectronics, one of several companies collaborating on the shrinkage. They achieved the feat by tuning the radar to operate at frequencies beyond 100 GHz. “The main motivation for using high frequencies rather than lower ones is that the antennas can be smaller.” Operating at 120 GHz, a wavelength of about 2.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
