Ever smarter homes

Not so long ago, “smart home” meant an assortment of individual connected gadgets, from smart LED lights to HVAC controls to security cameras, that users could control from their smartphones.

Securing the Things

With the IoT industry calling for common standards and infrastructure it’s fair to say that the industry is very much in its infancy; certainly not mature anyway.

Predicting the future

"For me science fiction is a way of thinking, a way of logic that bypasses a lot of nonsense. It allows people to look directly at important subjects," so said Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek.

With 4K and 8K displays hitting the market, how can manufacturers continue to improve picture quality? By Elliot Mulley-Goodbarne

All eyes on high-speed comms

If there is a one protocol that has effectively taken over communications it is Ethernet. Driven by demand within and between data centres, the networking standard is moving into areas like front- and back-haul communication for high-speed wireless cellular networks.

The AIoT 'Big Bang'

With devices getting smarter and intelligence now becoming an essential element in homes, vehicles, and workspaces, what’s referred to as the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is fast becoming a fact.

Looking to a secure future

As connected devices have proliferated across homes, organisations, and cities, the range of vulnerabilities has grown as well. Device security must be a primary requirement for any connected device manufacturer, and that requirement starts well before a device ever is shipped to a customer.

Do robot cars dream of virtual jeeps?

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), carmakers decided the way forward for dashboards was to extend them and, like military aircraft, project their graphics onto the windscreen as head-up displays.

It's all change

Amongst a bombardment of advertising from your favourite Californian conglomerate, every September a debate will break out about the cost of mobile devices.

Revolutionising PCB production

The method of printing PCBs has not changed for decades. In the early days of imaging circuit boards a substrate (copper laminate) was screen printed with a liquid etch resist; this was then oven cured.

Wireless Charging Continues to Drive Forwards

So, why isn't every consumer device charged wirelessly? Charging cables and power leads have always proved to be a nuisance, and are something that the industry could quite easily eliminate. Well, there are now moves underway to do this.

The GPU of everything

At the end of 2019 Imagination Technologies made one of its biggest announcements in years with the launch of a new GPU architecture. The A-Series is, according to the company, its most important GPU announcement in over 15 years and it claimed that the series has the world’s fastest GPU IP.

Reslient growth within space technology

After 60 years today’s space market encompasses not only traditional space companies but private ventures promising and, in some cases, providing launch services, space tourism, the commercialisation of near zero gravity and the introduction of constellations of low earth orbiting satellites delivering high speed connectivity and near real-time imagery.

Spectral efficiency

A convergence of different technologies means the wireless communications industry is continually pushed to do more with less.
