Latest In Depth Technology News

New Electronics brings you a selection of in depth Technology Articles, covering key issues and innovations within research & development, embedded design, power, communications design, test & measurement, programmable logic, system design and more.

Safe and secure

The secure and efficient supply chain is crucial to the success and longevity of any business and technology has drastically impacted the way in which the supply chain functions and the way in which businesses interact with it.

The race is on

Whether it’s reports on multiple glitches in smart home technology, smart light bulbs being hacked to obtain Wi-Fi credentials or hackers taking control of apps and obtaining location and personal details, is the Internet of Things simply growing too quickly? Is that explosive growth leaving users vulnerable to hackers?

RAM scoops up computation

It may be nothing more than a short-lived fad. But the rapid ascendance of machine learning in computing since deep learning became practical has pushed hardware development in a new direction that could have a major effect on how computer designers think about memory.

AI upgrades the digital twin

Virtual representations and simulated models of manufacturing models – or digital twins – were first proposed by Dr Michael Grieves at the Society of Manufacturing Engineers conference in 2002.

Discrete DRAM components v modules

A common practice when designing embedded computing systems for aerospace and defence applications is to use down-board DRAMs which are extremely reliable, have very efficient thermal ratings and the fastest electrical characteristics.

Servers slowly open the door to light

If you want to send a high-data rate signal more than a few centimetres optical is the smartest choice. At least that is the case if you look at the big picture. Optical wins every time in a straight shootout of energy per bit and bit density.

A bird's eye view of SWAP

In ancient China, tethered kites were deployed to gain an aerial advantage over the enemy. Later, armies used hot air balloons for aerial attack and information gathering and, shortly after the Wright brothers’ first flight in 1903, aeroplanes were used in small and large scale battles, before the First World War.

AI: Changing the face of defence

The US, China, Russia and the UK are among a growing number of countries that are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning as they look to develop a new generation of advanced weapons system.

Bringing AI to navigation

Bringing safer navigation to the world’s shipping industry is the driving force behind Orca AI, a company founded by Yarden Gross and Dor Raviv in 2018.

A far deeper confrontation

What are the implications for the electronics industry from the on-going trade dispute between the US and China, and is it simply part of a much deeper strategic confrontation?

Secure facilities

The large variety of machines and plants that has mushroomed over many years is increasingly being networked for monitoring and maintenance purposes.

Replacing silicon

In a world with mobiles, laptops and tablets the demand for low-voltage power adaptors has never been greater.

Digital twin to go the distance

Three years ago, Toyota’s CEO declared the company would need to put autonomous vehicles through almost 9 billion miles of testing before they could be deemed safe to use on public roads.

Hot chips take a bath

Liquid cooling has a chequered history. Once the only realistic option for mainframe computers, leaks and the costs of maintenance eventually saw pumps and heat exchangers replaced by fans and bladed heatsinks.

Ensuring reliability

For next-generation designs, today’s network and data centre SoC/systems designers need robust and reliable communications over challenging long-reach channels.

Addressing network security

Every day, organisations see an increasing number of devices being added to their network, ranging from smartphones and tablets, to Internet of Things (IoT).

A demanding challenge

The discovery of X-radiation by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in 1895 earned him the first Nobel Prize in Physics and laid the historical foundations for the field of medical imaging.

The Urban Farm concept

Urban farming is becoming increasingly popular and is now at the heart of a growing number of business models that want to address the needs of fast-growing urban markets looking to source fresh local produce.
