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.

Reshaping the automotive industry

As the demand for electric vehicles has accelerated, so automotive manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are adapting their business strategies as they look to engage with this market.

Motor protection breakers as a form of effective drive protection

Electric drives require effective protection against overloads and short circuits. Both phenomena cause motor disruption and create a risk of damage to the motor. This could lead to a potentially dangerous situation for people in contact with the devices. Modern motor breakers are the current remedy for both threats, and are a part of multi-level drive protection systems together with circuit breakers, RCD breakers, contactors, detectors (sensors) of phase failure and phase sequence, and undervoltage protection.

Why Ethernet-APL is so important

Ethernet-APL (advanced physical layer) specifies the details of the application of Ethernet communication to sensors and actuators for the process industry and will be published under the IEC.

The future of mining

Could the mining industry be at an inflection point with a historically conservative industry finally starting to embrace new technologies?

A partnership in design

Although most electronics engineers understand the principles of an AC to DC power supply (PSU) and could probably design one to work, it takes specialist knowledge and skills to fully optimise it for cost, size and performance.

A modular revolution

A quiet revolution is taking place in electronics hardware design and, as silicon integration has continued (fed by the economics of Moore’s Law), engineers are gradually moving from developing mostly at the component and circuit level to working more with board, modules and subsystems

Technology to the rescue

Finding malicious flows hidden in the traffic of millions of connected devices is a huge challenge, but a solution is at hand. By Claire Huckerby-Brown and Richard Parks.

A touch-free world

Optical sensors are being used to help create a safer, touch-free world as a result of COVID, as Gabriele Fulco explains to New Electronics.

A supply chain in flux

In the coming years, Tier 1 automotive suppliers have an enormous opportunity with the development of autonomous vehicles (AVs) but there are challenges - the whole supply chain is being disrupted by new participants and new technologies.

Accessing IT talent

In order to sustain and grow the UK’s technology sector we need a simple and affordable immigration system, as David Harold explains to New Electronics.

Keeping production on track

For semiconductor manufacturers, compound semiconductor manufacturers, raw wafer material suppliers, and R&D labs, utilising wet process cleaning equipment is critical when it comes to producing extremely reliable products.
