Control your lighting

Whilst the advantages of converting from fluorescent lighting to LED technology are substantial, they become far greater when integrated with an intelligent lighting control system, which delivers the correct amount of light where and when it is needed.

Passives’ push for circuit integration

Integrated passives have a lot going for them. They take up less space on a PCB, they simplify design and they can, with the right processes shrink circuit tolerances thanks to closer component matching. The downside is that, as with semiconductors, volume is everything.

How technology is driving the EdTech revolution

With teachers and educational budgets under pressure there has been a growing move towards using technology to aid teaching and, over the past ten years, that has given rise to the development of the Edtech sector, which is starting to radically change the face of learning.

The stretchy electronics revolution

Could the days of the hard computer chip be numbered? Covered in transistors and other semi-conducting elements, these rigid devices likewise render the devices in which they are found similarly inflexible.

Complying with the latest standards

NOR Flash has been a dependable technology in vehicles for many years, and today is used in various automotive systems, including the instrument cluster and in infotainment and telematics systems.

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.

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.

Amass DC power connectors

Some electronic components are well known to even complete rookies, not to mention electronic engineers or technicians. They are so common that at some point we stop paying attention to them, even though we have never even thought of finding out the name of their manufacturer. A very good example of such products are the well-known XT30, XT60 or XT90 power connectors (plugs and sockets). Do you know the name of their manufacturer?

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
