Technology Filtered by - Communications Hardware

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Communications Hardware sector. Advances in electronics are often fast-paced and innovative, so we know that as a design engineer you want to be kept up-to-date with current developments.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the latest electronics technology news from New Electronics.

Solid State Cooling

US based Phononic’s thermoelectric technology is proving truly disruptive in the usually staid world of cooling technology.

Introduction to Bluetooth 5

The latest version of the Bluetooth standard introduces a number of improvements that will be of value to many applications but will perhaps be most important for the Internet of Things (IoT).

A better approach to engineering study?

While Hereford University of Technology and Engineering will be the first new university to open in Britain in 30 years, crucially it’s looking to provide a dramatically different approach to studying engineering.

Which protocols will succeed in the IIoT?

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promises to support a new era of smart industry. Founded on the notions of openness and interoperability, easy scalability and ‘Big Data’, it can help enterprises drive significant operational improvements across their various manufacturing and business processes.

Bluetooth turns 20

In January 2018, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) celebrated its 20th anniversary. Formed in 1998, the group was started with just a handful of companies who were looking to replace wire for mobile voice and data. Today, membership stands at more than 33,000 companies.

RS-485 transceivers need protection against large over-voltages

Robustness and reliability have made RS-485 an industrial workhorse. A minimum differential signal swing of 1.5V and reliable operation over common-mode voltages ranging from -7V to +12V have catapulted its deployment. Initially used as a communication network in laboratory instrumentation, RS-485 can be found in applications ranging from building automation to traffic monitoring systems.

Network transformation

Of all the new semiconductor device technologies that have been introduced over the past few years, gallium nitride (GaN) is arguably generating the most far-reaching effect across a number of different applications areas.

Living on the Edge

As the deployment of Industrial IoT systems continues to proliferate, the streams of data transferred to the cloud skyrockets, drastically increasing the cost for cloud computing.

Research excellence

Set up in 1956 Roke Manor Research has over the past 60 years established itself as a world-class electronics engineering consultancy.

Close to the edge

There is a tension that lies at the heart of the software defined network (SDN). Telecom and datacom operators have seized on it because the idea of software-based control makes everything more flexible and it is only natural that demand for more responsive communications services should push technology in that direction.

Managing standards

With over 860 members the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) produces globally applicable standards for a broad range of information and communications technologies, from fixed, mobile and radio to broadcast and Internet technologies.

The marine revolution

The global shipping industry has witnessed a series of revolutions over the past 150 years, including the transition from sail to steam and the advent of containerisation in the 1960s.
