ESD suppression design guide

Choosing the most appropriate ESD suppression technology requires a balance between equipment protection needs and operating requirements. This 18-page ESD Suppression Design Guide from Littelfuse summarises some of the solutions available and helps designers choose the most appropriate solution for their end applications.

Magnetic sensing in washing machines

Like many modern appliances, washing machines today use a variety of sensors to ensure proper, safe, and energy-efficient operation. Littelfuse's magnetic sensor products help make these appliances as reliable and efficient as ever.

How magnetic sensors are helping to drive changes in appliance designs

From measuring electricity usage to turning off lights via remote control, smart technology is part of many of today's consumer electronic devices. Within the home appliance industry, sensors are playing a significant role in how consumers interact with smart appliances like washing machines, dishwashers and refrigerators. Temperature sensing and control are among the most important and well-established sensor functions in modern home appliances.

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.

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.

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.

Mobile OS architecture trends

In this whitepaper, Intel describes its investigations in the trends of mobile OS architecture over the next decade by focusing on the major commonalities.

A better way to cloud

This whitepaper explores the factors around the shifts in cloud computing, and highlights the differences between traditional cloud computing and cloud computing based on embedded processing.

Kontron's 2nd generation of Intel Core processor boards feature the 1st generation of cross-platform middleware

The 2nd generation Intel Core processor family brings huge improvements in processing power, graphics performance and power consumption. Further enhancements to power and a smaller footprint, make it the design-in replacement in 2011 for nearly all existing x86 platforms except for the Intel Atom class. But what is it exactly that makes the new processors so attractive?

Securing Smart Grid Devices Using Virtualization to Protect the Grid

Energy providers and governments worldwide are looking for ways to upgrade their energy systems. A big part of these efforts is the smart grid concept, which introduces networking and automation across the electrical system. The smart grid can give consumers and suppliers alike better monitoring and control of power consumption, leading to increased reliability, higher efficiency, and lower costs. However, computerization and connectivity bring with them the threat of security breaches and attacks.

Coexistence Digital TV

Spectrum that was previously reserved for TV broadcasting is being freed up in many countries for use under the new Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile radio standard. As a result, numerous coexistence scenarios are possible. So network operators and manufacturers from both the mobile radio and the broadcast sector have a vital interest in avoiding any interference and performing in-depth testing of their products. Rohde & Schwarz offers a wide ranging product portfoliIn many countries, spectrum that was previously reserved for TV broadcasting is being freed up for use under the new Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile radio standard. Moreover, LTE will operate alongside broadcast applications in the future in this frequency range. As a result, numerous coexistence scenarios are possible. So network operators and manufacturers from both the mobile radio and the broadcast sector have a vital interest in avoiding any interference and performing in-depth testing of their products. Rohde & Schwarz offers a wide-ranging product portfolio for use in performing the applicable measurements on devices (e.g. interference immunity of user equipment, set-top boxes, etc.) and networks. for such applications.

The real solution to fake parts

The high tech supply chain is more vulnerable to counterfeit components than ever before. With increasingly sophisticated criminal, the only way to protect the supply chain is through tool, technology, and new thinking about industrial aftermarkets. This white paper from Verical looks at securing supply chains through data transparency and better market design.

Enabling next generation high density power conversion

White paper looking at Vicor VI Bricks. The drive to create Metadata processing server systems plus the parallel push for increased port density and triple play (voice / video / internet) traffic handling in telecommunication systems places greater demands on power management architectures.

Applications for hall effect ic switches in portable applications

White paper from ROHM Semiconductor. In portable consumer electronic products, Hall effect sensors provide an effective alternative to mechanical switches with increased reliability as well as cost and/or performance advantages over other non contact technologies. Using integrated bipolar sensing and CMOS logic circuitry with highly reliable semiconductor packaging and a small magnet, the Hall integrated circuit (ic) provides several useful functions.
