Time holds the key to 6G

5G is still in the early stages of its rollout but the attention in R&D is now on the next generation to come, even if its launch may be some way off.

ML strategies for automating code reviews

Code review is an important part of the software development life cycle in electronic design and using an established coding standard - such as MISRA or CERT - is essential to ensuring the quality of code being produced.

The hypervisor advantage

Operating Systems (OSs) like Linux and Android are widely used in embedded systems but being large, complex and inevitably containing numerous flaws once compromised, an attacker can violate the security and take control of the whole system.

Achieving maximum throughput at an attractive price

As more devices are added to home networks with Wi-Fi support, we’re further choking our Wi-Fi bandwidth until we upgrade to Wi-Fi 6. But we don’t need to incur the cost of a 4x4 access point. 2x2 is plenty for home needs for the next several years.

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.

Benchmarking the cost of security

David Maidment, Director of Secure Device Ecosystem, Arm explores why it’s not important to benchmark the cost of security, but instead to benchmark the cost of not following good security practice, and why it's better to get ahead of the curve before regulation comes into play.

Measurement is critical

Set up to support businesses coping with the Covid-19 pandemic, Neil Tyler looks at the impact of NPL’s ‘Measurement 4 Recovery’ scheme.

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.
