New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Embedded & System Power 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.

The IoT is generating a lot of activity, but what are the implications for operating systems?

There is general agreement that, within the next five years or so, some 20billion devices will be linked together to create the Internet of Things. Each device, no matter where it sits in the network, will need to communicate and that ability will be underpinned by an operating system. But what will that OS look like? Will today's offerings adapt to life 'on the edge' or will a new wave of targeted OSs find more success?

Powering mobile devices with ICs is becoming easier

Whilst low power precision components have enabled rapid growth of the mobile device market, those portable products targeted at industrial, medical and military applications typically have much higher standards for reliability, run time and robustness. Much of this burden falls on the power system and its components.

Embedding a single test solution

"There is this 'intersection' of software and hardware that needs to be controlled, essentially through a single interface. Not only an interface in terms of accessing the system, but also an interface for accessing things that a hardware engineer would want to know about, as well as access for software engineers as they do their development job." So says Larry Osborn, ASSET's product manager for Sourcepoint.

Findlay Media announces the Embedded Design Show

The embedded sector continues to grow, pushed by economies of scale and pulled by the specialised expertise of engineers. A missing cog in the embedded engine has been a focused event for the sector. Tim Fryer reports on why this is no longer the case.

Acal looks to bring clean power to the rail industry

Every piece of equipment needs power and yet, claims Peter Creely, there are fewer analogue power engineers in the UK than professional footballers. However, Acal BFi has succeeded in retaining this power expertise, as Creely demonstrated to Tim Fryer when discussing details of a project for the rail sector.

Performance requirements drive changes in battery charging technology

There are few products on the market today which rely on disposable alkaline batteries for their power. Instead, designers are specifying lithium-ion batteries in various formats. But the general trend is for products to get smaller and for users to not only expect longer times between charges, but also a faster charging process. These demands are pushing battery charging product developers to adopt more innovative approaches.

4th gen Intel Core processors suit a range of embedded applications

Embedded computer applications demanding mid range to high end performance always face the same problem: they need more speed. But this demand is frequently coupled with strict requirements in terms of power efficiency to deliver a level of performance per Watt that fits the needs of space, weight and power constrained applications that characterise many embedded deployments. With the 4th generation Intel Core processors, a new micro architecture has been made available using the already proven 22nm TriGate transistor technology.

Should you think about using Android in your embedded product?

Android is a sophisticated, graphically based operating system (OS) for embedded products. It delivers a set of features that make it easy for manufacturers to deliver highly functional, professional looking devices to market quickly. In addition, Android devices can take advantage of a massive library of specially written third party applications (apps).

Small scale programmable logic devices offer numerous benefits

In the world of programmable logic, the phrase 'ultra low density' stands out starkly. The reason? Over the years, the trend has to been to create devices with ever more features on ever smaller manufacturing processes. While the devices themselves may not be getting smaller, their density has increased dramatically.

Automating oscilloscopes: how to save time and make better measurements

Oscilloscope measurement automation has become imperative for timely and accurate debug and validation. In many cases, the number and complexity of tests demanded by a technology standard or application prohibit any attempt at manual measurements. For example, the DisplayPort compliance tests require 312 different test conditions at eight waveform locations – 2496 unique measurements! An automated oscilloscope can complete these measurements in a few hours, where manual measurement will require multiple man days.

Energy harvesting: new perspectives and possibilities for powering systems

Electronic designers are now contemplating whether energy harvesting may be a viable power supply option for their applications. Continuing developments in this area are opening up opportunities for new applications and technical development are not only optimising the energy consumption of microcontrollers and wireless transmission techniques, but also the efficient transformation and storage of low quantities of the energy harvested.
