In this groundbreaking study, an enzyme extracted from pineapple known as bromelain was found superior to the chemo-drug 5-fluorouracil at treating cancer in the animal model. 5-fluorouracil is so toxic, that a dose weighing the equivalent of 3 pennies (7.5 grams) will kill 50% of humans given it. On the other hand, you would have to consume the equivalent of 1.5 lbs of bromelain to have a similar effect - which is practically impossible.

OK, enough with octa-core mobile monstrosities for now. Let’s shift gears to Embedded World 2014 and the lower end of the spectrum, one that will make up the vast majority of devices on the Internet of Things: tiny, low power microcontrollers with integrated wireless connectivity. There still seems to be some stigma about putting RF into designs, and some of it is justified. One of our readers commented this week that Apple “does not have the know-how” in reference to integrated baseband LTE. On the contrary, I’d say: Apple can buy any IP or talent they want. Their reluctance stems more from the realities of supply chains and multiple carrier qualifications facing different requirements in worldwide markets, not a technology issue per se. RF designs still need proper care and feeding and regulatory clearance. We continue to see strides in RF integration – with attention now turning to
10313Since Synopsys acquired Eve over a year ago, they haven't announced anything new in the ZeBu product line. Emulators are not like software where you expect incremental releases a couple of times per year, each new "release" is a complete re-design using new hardware fabric in a new process technology. Earlier this week Synopsys announced Zebu Server-3, currently the industry's fastest emulation system (to be fair, whenever a new emulation product is announced it tends to be the fastest for a time...). They also announced a collaboration with Imagination Technologies to enable faster emulation, currently for Imagination's PowerVR GPUs and in the future for the MIPS processor line too. Imagination are achieving clock speeds of 3.5MHz emulating their GPUs, compared to historic speeds closer to 1MHz with earlier generations of emulators.10314ZeBu servers come in a 20" cube weighing 155lbs and consuming less than 2.5KW. Inside there are Zebu modules (boards)
