‘Safe & Sound’ wearables design challenge

Sponsored by Texas Instruments (TI), element14 invites electronic engineers, designers and makers to participate in the ‘Safe & Sound’ design challenge. To win the challenge, makers need to design a safety-oriented wearable device or solution that protects a person from personal and environmental risks, monitors personal health or protects personal property from theft.

Rohde & Schwarz launches Scope in Space competition

Rohde & Schwarz has launched a competition to find the most innovative use for its recently announced Scope Rider, the rugged portable oscilloscope with lab performance. Ten shortlisted entrants will each receive a GoPro Hero4 silver camera to make a video of their idea, and the overall winner will receive a Scope Rider.

Top five Raspberry Pi 3 project ideas

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is said to deliver up to ten times the processing performance of the original Raspberry Pi and includes connectivity with 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1. The board is claimed to be suitable for IoT-based projects, as well as application in security, home automation and machine vision.

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.

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.

Electronics that dissolve on command

Researchers at Iowa State University have created transient electronics that can dissolve on demand. They say the technology could be used in mobile phones and credit cards as anti-theft devices, as well as in military.
