Solid state battery targets IIoT applications

Battery pioneer Ilika Technologies has launched what it says is the first solid state device designed for use in hostile environments. The P180, the second member of the Stereax family, is suitable for applications which operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to 150°C.

Dark lattice modes used to create laser light

A plasmonic nanolaser that operates at visible light frequencies and uses dark lattice modes has been made by researchers at Aalto University, Finland. The results are said to open new prospects for on chip coherent light sources.

Scientists create self-healing material

A transparent, self-healing, stretchable, conductive material has been developed by scientists at the University of California, Riverside and the University of Colorado, Boulder. The material can be activated electrically to power artificial muscles and could be used to improve batteries, electronic devices and robots.

Reactions to record breaking EDS 2016

The Engineering Design Show series of events, achieved record visitor numbers for the fifth year in a row. Running from 19-20 October at the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Coventry, the shows brought together more than 4200 design engineering professionals to the showcase of British innovation.

Liquid metals for elastic electronics

Self-propelling liquid metals, developed by researchers at RMIT University in Melbourne, are said to be a critical step towards flexible and reconfigurable soft circuit systems, such as 3D electronic displays and components. Potential applications range from smart engineering to biomedicine.

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.

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.

Knitted wearable sensors

ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) researchers have created new fibre structures and used traditional knitting and braiding techniques to introduce both of these capabilities to wearable structures.

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.
