Analogue AI feels the power

Deep learning has an energy problem. Model sizes have been spiralling up, and doing so at an increasing rate as users exploit cloud servers armed with graphics processing units to crunch the numbers.

Distributors look to 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the global economy, and for many companies the focus has had to be on simply surviving through to 2021. For those that make it, there’s no doubt that things will look markedly different.

Over-the-air charging gets real

?The ability to send an electric current through the air, from one location to another, may not be a new idea but it has certainly taxed the minds of engineers for many years – that is the ability to transmit power wherever it is required and without the need for wires.

Going virtual

Could Virtual Reality replace physical travel helping the leisure and tourism industry to reinvent itself post Covid-19?

Navigating the pathway to 5G

Is 2021 set to be the year that 5G delivers? With the construction and upgrading of base stations and other infrastructure and the roll out of mobile 5G devices, are we about to see the realisation of the many promises associated with the technology?

Truck platooning

All around the country, at all times of the day, 365 days a year, commercial vehicles are on the move.

How to navigate upcoming regulations for IoT

The complexities of upcoming regulations for IoT and the knock-on effect for manufactures. We investigate how a common approach and a security baseline, such as the PSA Certified framework, can simplify the regulation landscape, allowing manufacturers to achieve fast time-to-market without compromises.

A clearer roadmap

There are four trends now shaping the automotive market and in a report published in 2016 by McKinsey & Company (“Automotive revolution – perspective towards 2030”) these were identified as autonomy, connectivity, electrification and diverse mobility.

Network testing in the 5G era

Mobile network operators need to test the stability and performance of their networks in order to ensure good service, but because of the enormous amounts of data that’s involved this is hardly possible with manual methods so, operators are turning to artificial intelligence to solve this challenge.

A new safety standard

IEC 62368-1 is the new hazard-based product safety standard coming into effect this December. What does this mean for design engineers? Neil Tyler reports

True wireless takes centre-stage

Qualcomm’s annual ‘State of Play’ reports assess the views of consumers from across the US, UK, China, Germany, and Japan looking at consumer attitudes and behaviours and how they are changing and driving buying decisions when it comes to audio technology.

Creating natural sound experiences

Natural sound: It’s all around us. The voices of our loved ones; waves crashing and birds singing, symphonies playing, traffic passing by. But many people have a hard time enjoying natural sound — or any sound for that matter.

Addressing biodiversity protection

Previous waves of global economic growth have been driven by industrial and agricultural practices many of which, with hindsight, have been detrimental to the health and sustainability of life on our planet.

Antenna integration

Embedded antennas, also known as chip antennas, or SMD (surface mount design) antennas, are used in on-board devices, small trackers, remote monitoring, Femto/PICO base stations, point of sale terminals, and smart meters.

Maximising the value of IoT data

Many commentators described data as the ‘new oil’, and in the wake of the current epidemic, it might start to be viewed as a utility – a vital resource essential to shaping, supporting, securing and optimising, everyday life.
