Industrial

Electronics underpins many industrial systems; with applications ranging from programmable logic controllers to sensors to communications. But the market has its particular requirements, including reliability and immunity to the often hostile environment. This means companies involved in the sector, as well as those looking to supply products to those building industrial applications, need to keep up to date.

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

Together, WiE can change the world

Engineers are fundamental to shaping the lives of every man, woman and child. International Women in Engineering Day celebrates this inclusivity and marks an opportunity to extend it.

Solid State Cooling

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

State of play

In this roundtable NE takes a look at the changing nature of test and measurement, and the impact that National Instrument’s LabVIEW NXG has had on the engineering community.

Heart of glass

The encroachment of glass into mainstream production has been slow up till now, but could the push to deliver higher throughput more cheaply see the material have a bigger role to play?

Design a switch mode power supply using an isolated flyback topology

Here, Rich Miron, Applications Engineer at Digi-Key Electronics explores the operation of switch mode power supplies and explores make Vs. buy decision process for power supplies. Miron also investigates the design of a single output supply utilising flyback topology and provides a sample design using readily available parts and components.

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.
