Spanish Super Cup will have a Final Four format

first_imgThe competition that faces the La Liga champion with the Copa del Rey champion will be played once again outside of Spain.The Spanish Super Cup will continue to change as announced by the Spanish Football Federation today in the European nation.Last year the Super Cup was played for the first time using a single match format, and it was also the first time to be played outside Spain as it was played in Tanger, Morocco.But today the cup has received another modification, as it will be played for the first time in history between four teams, in a Final Four format.The two finalists of the Copa del Rey and the two top teams in the Spanish La Liga will play a small tournament outside of Spain to decide who is the biggest champion in the nation.The announcement was made by Spanish FA’s president Luis Rubiales.The tournament will be played between four or five days and will be a four-game celebration, with the winners of La Liga playing against the Copa del Rey runner-ups and vice-versa.The first edition in this new format will be played at the end of this season for the first time if the federation’s assembly agrees.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…According to Rubiales, the new format “does not break any rules and objectives of the competition.”“Neutral tournaments in the summer are not well supported for the clubs. We see this as a unique opportunity for the “Marca España” to grow without going against the principles of the sport.”Rubiales was one of the worst critics after La Liga decide to take one official game each year out of Spain, something that the Spanish Football Federation did not like.🗣 @LuisRubiales: “Propondré a la Asamblea que la #Supercopa se celebre en formato final four”🔗 https://t.co/NQM9nLYBCI pic.twitter.com/x640IaDOqU— RFEF (@rfef) February 19, 2019last_img read more

Organic flash memory developed

first_img Citation: Organic flash memory developed (2009, December 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-12-memory.html (PhysOrg.com) — Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a non-volatile memory that has the same basic structure as a flash memory but is made from cheap, flexible, organic materials.

The content is provided for information purposes only. Flash memory devices store data electrically in silicon transistors. The information can be written and read quickly and is retained in memory even when power is removed. This makes flash memory useful for devices such as cameras, USB drives, and MP3 players. If a flexible flash memory can be developed it could find application in large-area devices such as large area sensors, displays, or actuators with flash memory built-in.The organic flash memory was developed by a team of scientists led by Professor Takeo Someya, of the Department of Engineering and Information Systems at the University of Tokyo. The device uses an array of 26 x 26 memory cells on a plastic polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) resin sheet substrate that is flexible enough to be curved to a radius of only 6 mm without causing electrical or mechanical problems.The device is called an organic flash memory device because it has the same kind of floating-gate transistors as those used for silicon-based flash memories. A floating gate is a component of the transistor that is fully enclosed by a thin insulating material called a gate dielectric, which isolates it electrically and allows it to retain its charge for years (in silicon devices). If a large voltage is applied an electronic charge can be brought on to the floating gate and it remains there until the charge is erased when a voltage of opposite polarity is applied. Professor Someya said the challenge for an organic memory device is finding a suitable insulating material to electrically isolate the floating gate in which the charges are stored. The layer has to be thin enough to allow charge to be transferred to the floating gate but must not melt during assembly. The insulating layer prevents the electrons leaking away and consequent degradation of the data.The insulating film was made using a two nanometer thick self-assembled monolayer (SAM) and a four nanometer layer of aluminum oxide formed by oxidizing the surface of the aluminum floating gate.The erasing voltage of the memory is around 6V, while the reading voltage is only 1 V, and these voltages are considerably lower than those of organic memories developed previously. Data can be written to and erased from the memory over one thousand times, which is much less than the 100,000 times for silicon flash memory.The organic flash memory’s disadvantage is its short memory retention time of just 24 hours, but the researchers think this could be improved by using a SAM with a longer molecular length, and reducing the size of the transistors.The results of the research were published in the December 11 issue of the journal Science. © 2009 PhysOrg.com More information: Organic Nonvolatile Memory Transistors for Flexible Sensor Arrays, Tsuyoshi Sekitani et al., Science 11 December 2009:Vol. 326. no. 5959, pp. 1516 – 1519; DOI: 10.1126/science.1179963 The polyethylene naphthalate resin sheet with a memory array.
