Analysis to reduce time to find bugs by up to 50%

If you're spending more than 50% of your verification effort in debug, you're not alone. For many design, verification, and embedded software engineers as well as engineers verifying complex standard protocols, debug is the primary bottleneck in verification.

Automotive Circuit Protection

The designers of automotive electronics face many technical challenges during the system design process, including designing methods of protection against a variety of electrical hazards.

Safety standards in the ARM ecosystem

Safety is an increasingly important topic for system developers and there is an ever widening range of relevant safety standards that system developers need to be aware of. The increasing use of electronics in cars, medical equipment and the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to new safety standards and new demands on developers of hardware and software.

Virtualisation and the Internet of Things

Industrial control devices have been around for years. The initial devices were manufactured with a personality, a business logic that was already built in when they left the manufacturing plant to perform one fixed function (and nothing else). They were deployed for specific tasks such as controlling industrial equipment, electricity generation, power plants, trains, planes, or automobiles.

New life for embedded systems and the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer a fanciful vision. It is very much with us, in everything from factory automation to on-demand entertainment. Yet by most accounts, the full potential of interconnected systems and intelligent devices for changing the way we work and live has barely been tapped.

Advantages of capless LDOs

Power management of battery powered electronic devices is becoming increasingly more important for the present and future microelectronics industry.

What is EMC testing?

Testing of products under EU guidelines to ensure they don't either pollute the air waves or are susceptible to them is known as EMC testing. If a toaster either emits a lot of electromagnetic noise and upsets other electronic devices, e.g. your mobile phone, or it is unduly susceptible to noise emitted from another device, e.g. a call on your mobile phone causes the toast to 'pop up' when the bread is still white, the toaster is likely to fail EMC testing.

How to patent a product

This whitepaper from Newbury Electronics is intended to give the reader an overview of the journey from idea to granted patent. Click on the link below to download.

Power electronics in automotive applications

This whitepaper presents a review of power electronics systems in electric vehicles with emphasis on the power train system. It also addresses the high temperature requirements in the power train system and the advances in power electronics to handle them.

NI Trend Watch 2014

This report from National Instruments summarises the latest trends in the technology sector, enabling engineers to meet evolving demands and integrate the ever increasing power of technology into their work.

Security in the Internet of Things

Although it has been with us in some form and under different names for many years, the Internet of Things (IoT) is suddenly the thing. The ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage an incalculable number of networked, automated devices via the Internet is becoming pervasive.

FPGA based control for EV and hybrid EV power electronics

This whitepaper from Altera describes the benefits of using fpga based control in a hybrid electric vehicle or electric vehicle drive system comprised of a variable voltage control or bi-directional dc/dc converter, three phase inverters and interior permanent magnet.

Efficient remote management for embedded platforms

Out of Band (OOB) remote management can help to optimise the total cost of ownership of distributed embedded platforms. However, existing implementations are over designed and therefore too costly for embedded systems applications. Now, AMD has created an open source solution that removes the bloat of costly implementations while retaining the essentials of a compliant OOB implementation.

The positive impact of supply chain visibility on design-to-cost

Design decisions have an accumulative impact on the life cycle cost of a product. Choices made during this phase can contribute as much as 70% to the overall cost. Employing a sound design-to-cost methodology, backed with a real-time and accurate view of cost implications, empowers design teams to initiate preventive action that avoids costly supply chain surprises downstream.
