The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

MSP430FR6047 - microcontroller for ultrasonic meters 09.02.2018

The MSP430FR6047 is a new representative of microcontrollers from Texas Instruments, designed primarily for use in water, heat and gas meters.

The indisputable advantage of the MSP430FR6047 is that it uses innovative FRAM memory instead of traditional FLASH, as a result, reliability is increased (the number of rewrite cycles is up to 1015), power consumption is reduced during write operations, and it becomes possible to expand the amount of RAM due to FRAM.

The built-in USS (Ultrasonic Sensing Solution) module provides high measurement accuracy over a wide range of liquid flow rates (it is possible to measure very low flow rates: up to 1 l/h), helps to achieve ultra-low energy consumption during measurement and contributes to cheaper devices due to the requirement for small number of external components.

The MSP430FR6047 incorporates a high-speed (8 MSPS) sigma-delta ADC module, which, together with LEA (Low-Energy Accelerator), allows you to create current-optimized, high-precision measurement solutions with long battery life. In addition, the microcontroller includes a segment display driver, RTC, 12-bit SAR ADC, analog comparator, encryption and checksum modules. There is a built-in BSL bootloader that allows you to program and update software via UART and I2C interfaces even without using a JTAG programmer.

Main parameters of MSP430FR6047:

Clock frequency 16 MHz;
Program memory (FRAM) up to 256 kB;
RAM (SRAM) 8 kB;
Interfaces: 2xI2C, 6xSPI, 4xUART;
Built-in segment display controller;
32-bit hardware multiplier;
6-channel DMA controller;
Real time clock;
Sigma-delta ADC 12-bit 8 MSPS (16 channels), programmable gain;
SAR ADC 12-bit (16 channels);
Analog comparator (16 channels);
Timer 16-bit (x6);
Flexible timing setting;
Supply voltage 1,8...3,6 V;
Operating temperature range -40...85°С.
