A matter of scale: Integrated device eases industrial signal scaling issues 21/06/2010

In an industrial environment, the control of machinery or the control of process is done with the help of programmable logic controllers and distributed control systems. Both have monitoring and controlling functions, as they include analogue I/O modules that can receive input signals from sensors and transmit output signals to actuators.  Read More

Pushing to 32nm: advanced platform for networking asics 21/06/2010

Despite many people claiming otherwise, asics are alive and well. And, again in contrast to recent opinion, asics are also alive and well at the leading edge of technology. Although the development costs at the leading edge are escalating rapidly, these are outweighed by the benefits which an asic brings to the application.  Read More

How new coding approach helps optical systems to hit 100Gbit/s 24/05/2010

There are several reasons why engineers are working harder when designing high capacity optical systems – higher data rates mean fewer photons per optical pulse and there is greater signal dispersion. Adding to the challenge, service providers want the reach of 40 and 100Gbit/s systems to match that of existing networks designed for 10Gbit/s ...  Read More

Targeting testability: Design for testability needs simple solutions 24/05/2010

In spite of enormous development and production improvements, electronic components continue to fail and not one manufacturing technique will guarantee a 100% fault free pcb. Faulty assemblies must not be delivered and the requirement for testing is obvious.  Read More
