Peggy Smedley Show

Jen Huffstetler Jen Huffstetler, chief product sustainability officer, VP & GM future platform strategy, Intel, takes time out of her schedule to share with Peggy Smedley, editorial director, and president of Specialty Publishing Media, about some of the biggest trends on the horizon for infrastructure and sustainability, identifying what comes next. Smedley: What is next for infrastructure and sustainability? Huffstetler: First, demand for compute is accelerating due to new AI (artificial intelligence) demands. This need for performance requires processors and accelerators that generate more heat, which in turn, requires advanced cooling solutions. Today’s cooling solutions are typically based on traditional air conditioning,…

We are entering a new era of work—one where AI (artificial intelligence) and the IoT (Internet of Things) will drive innovation at companies in nearly every vertical market around the globe. At the heart of all of this is the data center. As we enter this new era of work, we must also consider the role of the data center. JLL suggests data center storage capacity will grow from 10.1 zettabytes in 2023 to 21 zettabytes in 2027, which is a five-year compound annual growth rate of 18.5%. As data rises, so too will the need for data centers, and…

Semiconductor packaging has evolved from traditional 1D PCB levels to cutting-edge 3D hybrid bonding at the wafer level, achieving interconnecting pitches as small as single micrometers and over 1000 GB/s bandwidth, according to a recent report from IDTechEx. In the realm of 3D integration, microbump technology continues to advance for achieving smaller pitches, with groundbreaking Cu-Cu connection methods like hybrid bonding leading the way. Here is how this can help: Power efficiency is enhanced through innovative packaging techniques. Performance benefits from shorter interconnection pitches. Area requirements vary for high-performance chips and 3D integration’s smaller z-form factor. Cost reduction strategies involve exploring alternative materials and improving manufacturing efficiency. Looking to the future, hybrid bonding is poised to revolutionize the landscape of future HPC and AI products, offering a host of advantages that will shape the industry’s path forward. As technology advances and demands for increased computing power and efficiency continue to surge, hybrid bonding will continue to see…

Robotic technologies can help in several ways and in many different industries. Today, let’s consider how it can assist in packaging. As one example, Superior Paving Corp., has announced a robotic arm that packages 50 pound bags of EZ Street, which is an asphalt solutions company. The robotic solution is part of Superior Paving’s plan to adopt Ambient Asphalt Technology by EZ Street, which will ultimately lead to durability and sustainability in road maintenance. Here is how this can help: Enhance operations for greater productivity. Enhance safety to improve conditions for workers. Allow people to focus on more critical aspects of the job. David White, president, Superior Paving, says this is about harnessing technology to work alongside people. Ultimately this will lead to greater innovation in the asphalt industry. Looking to the future, we will continue to see the rise of robots and technologies in this…

Remote monitoring can be used in a number of different industries from manufacturing, to energy, to construction, to healthcare, and beyond. Let’s look at a recent example of how it can be used in patients with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Roughly 10% of women have incidents of critically high blood pressure in postpartum. To help, Babyscripts improves postpartum assessment in patients through remote monitoring with an automatic blood pressure cuff. Across five maternity hospitals, a study was conducted between September 2020 and July 2022, looking at 1,260 patients enrolled in the Babyscripts myBloodPressure module. The group used Babyscripts myBloodPressure to self-record their blood pressure levels, capturing data and communicating it back to the provider team through an internet-connected blood pressure cuff and Babyscripts’ smartphone app. Here is how this can help: Identify those at risk of severe complications from hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Of those enrolled, 74% were highly engaged with monitoring, entering seven or more blood pressures. Of those who entered at least one blood pressure, 9% entered at least one critical range blood pressure. With technology such as this, a patient can self-identify risk through surveys, assessments, and remote patient monitoring. Looking to the future, we will continue to see technology help care for those with high risks, ultimately improving the patient’s…
