Aerospace

Electronics is becoming increasingly important to the aerospace sector. With the development of X by wire systems and the start of a move to more electric aeroplanes, those involved in the sector, as well as those looking to enter the aerospace supply chain, need to keep up to date.

New Electronics covers developments in the aerospace sector, bringing technology updates and opinion from the market.

Engineering the future

Richard Noble is looking to build a car that goes in excess of 1000mph. but he's also looking to inspire tomorrow's engineers.

Pin fin heat sinks point the way to more efficient cooling

In recent years, increases in processing power mean advanced semiconductor devices now dissipate astounding levels of power. For many applications, cooling these devices has become a major challenge. Older style heat sinks are often inadequate for cooling newer, hotter running components.

Going for gold

The processes and tools involved in becoming a part of the SC21 community – and the business benefits

Solar powered aircraft

While cars are already beginning to adopt 'green' technologies, a greater challenge is to harness alternative energy to power aircraft. The Solar Impulse project is looking to develop an aircraft that can circumnavigate the globe.

Express delivery

FedEx is the world’s largest express transportation company, but the range of goods which FedEx ships can expose its planes to danger - therefore designing a fire suppression system required reliable prototyping tools.

Cool it!

Temperature affects device reliability significantly, so the onus is on designers to transfer heat away from devices at risk.

Picture this!

Will increasing demand for highly sensitive imaging products see cmos technology gain the upper hand over ccds?

Take up takes off

New markets demanding high availability systems with minimum downtime are a ‘steal’ for the ATCA and MicroTCA sector.

Born and bred

Will ‘new kid on the block’ MicroTCA be mature enough to eventually outgrow its older ATCA sibling?

Security in the skies

How multiple independent levels of security software architecture meet the disparate system design requirements of military UAVs.

Testing times

Test system development isn’t as easy as your boss may think. By Bob Dean and Calvin Erickson.

Together we stand

The UK aerospace and defence industry is uniting to strengthen its supply chain. Can SC21 provide the glue?
