New integrated circuit can minimise food waste28 February 2013
Scientists have developed an electronic device capable of determining whether food is safe to eat or not – by measuring its acidity - and this holds the potential to significantly reduce food wastage, which is estimated by some to be as much as 100kgs per person per year.
The plastic ADC (analog-digital converter) was invented by a team with members from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, Universita di Catania in Italy, CEA-Liten and STMicroelectronics.
