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

Secure facilities

The large variety of machines and plants that has mushroomed over many years is increasingly being networked for monitoring and maintenance purposes.

Digital twin to go the distance

Three years ago, Toyota’s CEO declared the company would need to put autonomous vehicles through almost 9 billion miles of testing before they could be deemed safe to use on public roads.

Hot chips take a bath

Liquid cooling has a chequered history. Once the only realistic option for mainframe computers, leaks and the costs of maintenance eventually saw pumps and heat exchangers replaced by fans and bladed heatsinks.

Ensuring reliability

For next-generation designs, today’s network and data centre SoC/systems designers need robust and reliable communications over challenging long-reach channels.

Too hot to handle?

The growth is wearable devices means that overcoming the thermal challenges of this technology are becoming increasingly important.

Gone in a flash

Device form factors come and go. Here, Michael Barrett looks at removable memory and warns of the importance of considering how long its form factor will be around.

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.

Distinguishing signal from noise

Capacitive touchscreens are constructed using an orthogonal grid of transmitter and receiver (or ‘drive’ and ‘sense’) electrodes which are usually formed on either side of a transparent substrate and behind a transparent touch surface such as glass.

Loose threads

Timing can be tricky in embedded systems. Shortly after it touched down on the surface of Mars in 1997, NASA’s Pathfinder lander started to malfunction, triggering a watchdog timer that engineers tried to fix with system resets.

Getting with the times

The digital revolution in broadcasting continue apace, but while high definition (HD) and 4K (UHD) dominate the headlines, more profound changes can be found in the way production, storage and distribution are evolving. At the heart of those changes is Cloud computing.

Solid State Cooling

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

Overturning convention

By streamlining work-in-progress data management it’s possible to provide organisation, traceability and greater accountability.

The Sonic Internet

Whether in the smart home or in in-car entertainment the audio market is changing rapidly. The audio industry is enjoying a sustained period of rapid growth, particularly in key audio markets like the US and UK, and audio is becoming more important as developers look to create more immersive experiences in the fields of gaming and virtual reality.

Beyond the threshold

Given the massive spikes in power consumption incurred by microprocessors and memory when they ramp up to top speed, it is no surprise that much of the attention in circuit design is aimed at trying to find ways to keep digital power under control.

Timing gets smart

Ethernet has come a long way since IEEE 802.3 was first published in 1980. First envisioned as a technology to connect PCs and workstations, it has gradually evolved to become the networking technology of choice for a broad range of applications across enterprise computing, data centre, wireless networks, telecommunications and industrial sectors.
