SCIENCE: Energy sources of Cancer were indentified by Korean Team Research.


A team of Korean researchers has confirmed that the energy source of cancer cells is fatty acid

A team led by professor Kim Soo-yeol of the Department of Cancer Biology Research confirmed for the first time in the world, that the energy source of cancer cells is fatty acid.

The results of the study were published in the latest issue of Cancers, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal and was announced by The National Cancer Center on Sept. 14.

The result overruns a study by German physiologist Otto Warburg who nabbed the Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine in 1931.

Until now, cancer cells have been known to metabolize through a process of decomposing glucose into lactic acid. Based on this research, Otto Warburg took home the Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine in 1931.

Professor Kim's team produced different results from Warburg’s findings through cell and animal tests. When Warburg conducted tests, they used a culture fluid containing only glucose, which led to erroneous results. Kim's team conducted cell tests under conditions similar to those of the human body to confirm that cancer cells use more oxygen and grow faster than normal cells. In this process, the team found out that while the energy source of normal cells is glucose, cancer cells entirely rely on fatty acid oxidation.

In an actual test of mice with pancreatic cancer, cancer incidence dropped fourfold when fatty acids were replaced with carbohydrates.

"The four-fold decrease in cancer incidence just by replacing fatty acids with carbohydrates as the energy source is an effect comparable to cancer treatment," Kim said. "Our research results suggest that new treatments can be introduced based on blocking cancer energy metabolism."

Is a cancer cure around the corner? 

We hope the Korean team will find the way to finally have a real cure for all kind of cancer, in the near future.



World ´s First DDR5 DRAM launched by SKhynix.


SK hynix Inc. (from South Korea) announced to launch the world’s first DDR5 DRAM. It is a high-speed and high-density product optimized for Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) as a next-generation standard of DRAM.


Since SK hynix announced the development of World’s First 16 Gigabit (Gb) DDR5 DRAM on November 2018, the Company has provided its major partners including Intel with sample products, and has completed various tests and verification of its functions and compatibility. This will allow SK hynix to provide its customers with the products once the DDR5 market becomes active.

In the meantime, SK hynix has conducted a joint-operation of the on-site lab, system-level test, and simulation with System-on-Chip1) (SoC) manufacturers to verify the functions of DDR5. Also, the Company validated the compatibility of its DDR5 and the major components on the DRAM module including register clock driver2) (RCD), which affect DRAM performance, and power management integrated circuit3) (PMIC). Through these verifications, SK hynix has been collaborating closely with its global partners.


SK hynix’s DDR5 supports a transfer rate of 4,800 ~ 5,600 Megabit-per-second (Mbps), which is 1.8 times faster than the previous generation – DDR4. It can transmit 9 full-HD (FHD) movies (5GB each) per second with a 5,600Mbps transfer rate. Its operating voltage is 1.1V being lowered from 1.2V of DDR4, which means that its power consumption is reduced by 20%.

Another notable specification of the Company’s DDR5 is Error Correcting Code (ECC) inside the chip that can correct even 1-bit-level errors by itself. With the ECC, the reliability of applications will be increased by 20 times. The Company’s DDR5 also could build up to 256 Gigabyte (GB) capacity applying through-silicon-via (TSV) technology.

The Company expects that these eco-friendly semiconductor memories will reduce both the power consumption and operating costs of data centers as DDR5 consumes less power and significantly improves its reliability.

“Intel partnered closely with memory leaders including SK hynix on the DDR5 spec development starting with early architecture concepts through JEDEC standardization,” commented Carolyn Duran, Vice President of Intel’s Data Platforms Group and GM of Memory and IO Technologies. “In addition, we worked collaboratively with SK hynix on silicon development by designing and testing prototypes to ensure DDR5 meets its performance goals and are fully ready for our mutual customers.”

“As SK hynix has launched World’s First DDR5 DRAM, The company could lead the future technology trend in the global DRAM market,” said Jonghoon Oh, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at SK hynix. “SK hynix will focus on the fast-growing premium server market, solidifying its position as a leading company in server DRAM.”

Meanwhile, DDR5 standard was published by JEDEC (JEDEC Solid State Technology Association) earlier on July 2020. According to market intelligence provider Omdia, the DDR5 demand will begin its surge in 2021, and it will possess 10% of the total global DRAM market in 2022 and increase to 43% in 2024.

Synopsys, Renesas, Montage Technology, and Rambus have also stated their commitment to the continuing cooperation in creating the DDR5 ecosystem.

“Synopsys has collaborated with SK hynix to deliver highly reliable DDR5 solutions for advanced high-performance computing SoCs requiring ultra-fast and high-capacity memory subsystems,” said John Koeter, senior vice president of marketing and strategy for IP at Synopsys. “Our silicon-proven DesignWare DDR5/4 IP has been validated using numerous SK hynix DDR5 RDIMMs at up to 6400 Mbps, helping designers minimize risk and meet their high-performance requirements of data-intensive SoCs.”

“As the leading supplier of memory interface products for every generation of memory over the last twenty years, we pride ourselves on strong engagements with our key partners and customers. Renesas has worked closely with SK hynix to qualify a complete portfolio of DDR5 products for server, client, and embedded markets.” Rami Sethi – Vice President and General Manager of Renesas’ Data Center Business Division

“Montage Technology is thrilled to partner with SK hynix on enabling the DDR5 memory ecosystem. As a leading vendor, we have been collaborating with SK hynix through many DDR generations, and are committed to providing high-performance, low-power memory interface solutions. Currently, Montage Technology offers a comprehensive portfolio of DDR5 logic devices – we are excited to further help SK hynix accelerate DDR5 market adoption,” Geof Findley, VP of Sales and Business Development at Montage Technology

“Compute-intensive workloads in the data center are accelerating the need for greater memory capacity and bandwidth,” said Chien-Hsin Lee, vice president, and general manager, Integrated Circuits at Rambus. “DDR5 DRAM answers the call with higher data rates and new innovations that dramatically boost memory performance. Employing a new generation of memory interface chips, DDR5 RDIMMs and LRDIMMs will unleash the processing power of server platforms. We are pleased to partner with SK hynix to enable next-generation technology for the ecosystem and fulfill the growing demand for DDR5.”

HYUNDAI next EV car will sport an LG 77 inch OLED Display on its interior ceiling.



IONIQ Concept Cabin Offers Many of Home’s Comforts for the Road

LG Electronics (LG) and Hyundai Motor unveiled the IONIQ Concept Cabin, a collaborative effort that combines both companies’ expertise in consumer lifestyle convenience and personal electric vehicles to deliver a concept that takes maximum advantage of the more spacious interiors made possible by EVs not encumbered by internal combustion powerplants and mechanical components.

The IONIQ Concept Cabin is equipped with a number of amenities that truly make this space a home away from home. For example, a capsule coffee machine makes and delivers the perfect cup for the morning commute, a compartment under the seat dries and refreshes wet or stale shoes before reaching one’s destination, a wardrobe manager keeps clothes neat and wrinkle-free during the drive and a mini-refrigerator keeps beverages chilled for those hot summer drives.

Beyond comfort and convenience, the most eye-catching feature of the IONIQ Concept Cabin is the flexible OLED display that covers much of the ceiling of the vehicle’s interior. Rear passengers can adjust the degree of curvature of the display with intuitive hand gestures for the optimal viewing angle. The large 77-inch OLED screen can be split to allow both rear passengers to enjoy different content simultaneously. The speakers in the headrests create a personal sound zone that doesn’t intrude on the other passenger.

But the innovation isn’t only visible when seated inside the vehicle. Once the vehicle is empty, a sliding bar wipes the floor clean, picking up crumbs and wiping up spills. At the same time, overhead UV LED lights to come to life to disinfect the interior of the vehicle of all germs and other microorganisms.

“LG has been very involved in connected car solutions and at CES 2020 we demonstrated a personalized in-car experience that allows drivers and passengers to take a piece of home on the road with them,” said Lee Chul-bae, head of LG Electronics’ Corporate Design Management Center. “With IONIQ Concept Cabin, we are taking that experience to the next level by partnering with Hyundai, who brings real mobility expertise to the table.”
