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.

A flexible design process

Delivering a successful product from the ground-up in 14 short months requires a hardworking team, especially when that team is made up of 90 engineers located around the globe.

Deploying technology in space

When selecting and using electronic components in space they will need to be reliable and capable of surviving the harsh conditions they’ll experience over an extended period of time.

Closing the gap

Smart home technology has been promising much, for so long, but helped by new wireless standards and the use of voice technology is it now beginning to deliver?

Standing the test of time

Despite being in its 21st year the market for Bluetooth continues to grow. To put it in perspective in 2000, there were a total of 800,000 Bluetooth enabled devices shipped in a single year. Today, it’s 10million per day.

Heated conundrum

Board engineers are familiar with the trends - smaller, faster, safer. But as electronic systems become more complicated and the demands placed on them increase, creating a system that meets all this criterion is becoming more difficult to manage and deliver.

A world connected

This year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) was described by John Hoffmann, the CEO of the GSMA (the event organisers), as a bringing together of a “global ecosystem spanning multiple sectors and reflecting the expanding role of mobile connectivity.”

Taking a lead

The setting up of the new Future Networks Lab looks to support and enable the adoption of IoT, LPWAN and 5G technologies.

Securing our airports

A the end of 2018 Gatwick airport and the UK authorities were forced to bring in military teams, using advanced techniques developed on the battlefield, to search for an unauthorised drone buzzing the airport’s runway.

Definition in demand

Consumer interest in 4K continues to increase and by the end of 2018 4K TV shipments are expected to have passed 100million units, according to market analysts Futuresource and they expect double digit growth through to the end of 2022.
