What makes FinFETS so compelling? 08/10/2013

Since the advent of semiconductors and throughout the long history of designing integrated circuits for everything from computer hardware to multifunction mobile devices, the basic tenet of Moore's law has remained the same: the number of transistors on a given area of silicon doubles every two years.  Read More

Data acquisition system enhances images for digital X-Ray and MRI 08/10/2013

In digital X-Ray (DXR) systems, film detectors are replaced with solid state sensors, including flat panel and line scan detectors. Flat panel detectors use either direct and indirect conversion. With direct conversion, a selenium array forms capacitive elements that convert high frequency photons directly into an electronic current.  Read More

Cisco pushes the boundaries with a 4billion transistor single chip network processor 08/10/2013

Cisco Systems has announced the nPower X1, the industry's first single chip 400Gbit network processor. The chip is designed for the next stage in the evolution of the network dubbed the Internet of Everything, or IoT.  Read More

The connected car: Coming soon to a street near you? 24/09/2013

FPGAs enable innovative and cost effective automotive camera solutions 24/09/2013

The increased use of semiconductor products in automobiles has been more pronounced in recent years. For example, it is now fairly common to find tyre pressure monitoring systems, even in entry level compact cars, a feature that used to be available only in some high end luxury cars until few years ago. The primary applications driving increased ...  Read More

Big bus puts new demands on the battery management system 24/09/2013

Today's vehicles have an electrical system operating from a 12V battery with an associated power management system. Two requirements, however, are stressing the 12V power system to the limit of its capability.  Read More

P1687 finally emerges as a working standard 24/09/2013

P1687, also known as Internal JTAG, has been on the drawing board for the best part of a decade, but if the draft standard gets approval from a Balloting Committee this month it may be published by the IEEE in Q1 of 2014. It has taken so long because it has a significant bearing on a whole host of companies – including software developmers, IP ...  Read More

Cutting overhead through preemption threshold scheduling 24/09/2013

Real time embedded systems typically use a collection of application tasks or threads that must complete their work within real time constraints.  Read More

Will existing test equipment be able to handle 100Gbit Ethernet? 24/09/2013

The emergence of 100Gbit Ethernet is set to bring huge increases in broadband speeds, but will existing test equipment be up to the task?  Read More

North American Eagle bids to become the fastest land vehicle 24/09/2013

For a brief period in 1964, when the rules governing land speed records were transitioning from wheel powered to jet propelled vehicles, the official land speed record was held by Donald Campbell in his Bluebird – and this was set in Australia. That apart, the record has been set for the past 80 years in America, principally at the Bonneville Salt ...  Read More

IP advice: When is a threat to sue unjustified? 23/09/2013

New Electronics has partnered with leading intellectual property law firm D Young & Co LLP to offer guidance to companies on how to protect their IP. In this issue, Claudia Rabbits, a D Young Associate, explains what is 'unjustified'.  Read More

Electronics Design Show 2013 preview 10/09/2013

When Findlay Media launched the Engineering Design Show last year, the move was greeted with a degree of scepticism, yet the event proved a roaring success.  Read More

UK researchers in race to develop 5G technology 10/09/2013

Mobile device users in the UK are about to be offered mouth watering deals to entice them to shift to faster data rate services as competition finally comes to the 4G market. 02 has just launched its LTE based (Long Term Evolution) services, while Vodafone and 3G UK – the other operators with 4G licences – will follow on shortly as they try to ...  Read More

Cognitive Radio generates interest from the military 10/09/2013

Software defined radio – moving hardware functions into software – has opened up the door to a more flexible future for radio. More specifically it is an enabling technology behind cognitive radio (CR) – a system that provides a service based on the environment and resources available.  Read More

Challenges involved in modernising an aircraft's avionics suite 10/09/2013

There are several reasons why a military operator might wish to modernise the avionics systems of its aircraft. These include enhancing mission capabilities, reducing pilot workload, increasing situational awareness, securing compliance with current and emerging regulatory requirements that enable military aircraft to fly in commercial airspace ...  Read More

Universal debug system promises to avoid nightmares of SoC debug 10/09/2013

Systems on Chips (SoCs) are getting ever more complex. In the space of a decade, these parts have grown to feature many processors and huge amounts of software. But the best – or the worst – is yet to come. In another decade, SoCs will be unrecognisable from their early ancestors.  Read More

What features do micros need in order to meet the challenges posed by the IoT? 10/09/2013

Although many connected devices are already available, there is some way to go to unlock the potential of the internet of things (IoT).  Read More

What should designers consider when choosing between Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart? 10/09/2013

Can intermittent faults in operation be cured at the design stage? 10/09/2013

Intermittent faults can be irritating. Often attempts to repair them will result in the phenomenon of NFF – No Fault Found – as the product fails to reproduce its failures when sent for service or repair. Such problems cease to be irritating and start to become very expensive and potentially dangerous when they start to appear in safety critical ...  Read More
