Technology Filtered by - Engineering Management

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Engineering Management 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.

Companies should take a more holistic approach to product innovation

A desirable product that answers real needs and is intuitive to use is likely to generate more revenue for your business. That may seem obvious, but many companies continue to be driven by technology, rather than taking a more holistic approach to product innovation. These businesses typically end up adding more clever gadgets, apps or functionality, rather than focusing on the needs of their potential customers.

How to ensure your SCM system is fit for purpose in today's electronics design industry

A couple of decades ago, version control – often referred to as software configuration management (SCM) – was largely unheard of outside the software development industry. Then the sheer volume and variety of the different elements which electronics designers have to keep track of began to increase. That pushed the electronics industry to adopt version control, to the point where, today, the approach is pretty much ubiquitous.

How do you keep your IP secure against counterfeiting?

If you have a user installable part, can your system tell whether it is authentic or not? Can you be sure whether a subcontractor is shipping to counterfeiters extra versions of your product? One of the weapons which chip and system builders are using to deal with these problems is to make each part identifiably unique.

'Total Cost of Ownership' methodology becomes more sophisticated

The notion of 'Total Cost of Ownership' (TCO) was a common sense reaction to the increasing flow of electronics manufacturing to the 'low cost geographies'. With low real estate costs and wage rates two orders of magnitude lower than in developed countries, the developing world could offer prices that won many contracts, whether based on end product or price per placement or any other such metric.

Beat the clock: System design and frequency management

Clocks are the 'heart beat' of almost all electronic systems and clock management is an especially important part of the overall system design. Since clock accuracy, stability and overall signal quality affect system performance, choosing the right timing solution that fits the design application is critical.

The integration imperative

In today's high mobility society, the car is becoming just another connected device in the web. The driver expects to access the same information in their vehicle as they do in all other areas of life. These expectations will not be met without a significant contribution from electronics.

In good shape

UK electronics is in good shape and capitalising on the nation's 'can do' engineering heritage.

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.

Improving engineering management

Engineering is multidisciplinary and can therefore benefit from 'consolidated thinking'. With with the advent of computer aided engineering, the development landscape has evolved into a more homogenous environment.
