Embedded World in brief

This year’s Embedded World event in Nuremberg saw an increased focus on the Internet of Things (IoT) and security as development in this area is becoming more mature and the threats posed by hackers and malware is understood better.

Conductive electronics almost as flexible as rubber

Researchers from EPFL have developed conductive tracks that they say are almost as flexible as rubber and can be stretched up to four times their original length and in all directions. The team claims the electronics can also be stretched a million times without cracking or interrupting their conductivity.

CUI in the lab – AMT zeroing and one touch

CUI in the Lab series takes viewers inside the engineering lab for technical and application-based demonstrations on the latest technologies from CUI. In this video CUI’s VP of Motion Control, Jeff Smoot, demonstrates the fast and simple process of aligning CUI’s innovative AMT modular encoder series versus an optical encoder.

Robotic work station could improve the way we work

San Francisco-based research company, Altwork has developed an office work station that is designed to improve the comfort and therefore the productivity of office workers. The Altwork Station is a robotic work station that comprises an articulated chair, a desk and a computer monitor bracket. There's also a side table for a cup of coffee.

The importance of selecting the right circuit protection

Circuit protection is designed as an intentional weak link which can combat catastrophic failure due to surges in power and other destructive events. But, how do you select the right components? This video from Littelfuse gives insights into the decision making process.

DAEC reduces dynamic angle error to almost zero

This video provides a brief introduction to Dynamic Angle Error Compensation (DAEC), a technology developed by ams that is said to eliminate the measurement error attributable to propagation delay in its magnetic position sensors.
