A ‘New Era’ in space products

From radiation hardened SoCs to the growing use of flying plastic encapsulated modules, recent developments have made doing business in space more achievable for a broadening base of companies.

A 'singular' vision

Earlier this month Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference saw the unveiling of new products, platforms and customer news.

Feeding the beast

In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems have a huge appetite for data storage capacity with mapping and navigation, music and entertainment occupying a growing memory footprint in cars.

Measuring health

The latest generation of health sensing wearables won’t just simply measure input, they’ll enable accurate, credible and safe data that will not only help doctors but usher in an age of wearable, regulated medical devices.

Securing national infrastructure

Increasingly hackers are becoming more sophisticated and turning from bank accounts and smart devices to targeting a country’s infrastructure. As a consequence cyber-security has never been more important.

Easy as Pi

Sony Corporation’s electronics manufacturing arm, based in Wales, is pioneering the use of the Raspberry Pi single board computer (SBC) to bring its Industry 4.0 vision to life.

Wi-fi urgently needs more spectrum

If we have learned anything in the past year, it is the importance of the internet to keep us connected – Internet access is no longer the luxury commodity it was in years gone by, but a necessary component of everyday life.

Throwing a light on Bluetooth

COVID-19 and the resulting pandemic has effectively shifted growth in Bluetooth annual device shipments out by one year, according to a new report from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).

The perfect storm

COVID-19 and the on-going global health crisis have brought many challenges to businesses and forced them to adopt new business practices and operations.

Accelerated audio trends

What kind of audio market is set to emerge after the pandemic? Well, according to Geir Skaaden, Chief Products and Services Officer, Xperi, “It's been the kind of shock that seeds innovation and shapes industries."

Analogue programmability

When you look at the success of the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) in capturing a wide range of designs where flexibility counts more than volume price, the attraction to do the same for analogue makes a lot of sense.

Thermal evolution

Two years ago, a team of HP was faced with the challenge of getting more airflow out of a duct used to cool the print-heads of an upcoming inkjet printer.

Communication in Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet standards LAPP industrial cables

As the production lines develop and become increasingly complex, the number of devices (sensors and actuators) that need to be managed also grows. Industrial processes are carried out by PLCs and extensive networks of digital or analogue connections. Most often, these are systems based on electric (copper) or fibre-optic cables. Depending on the age of the infrastructure, these will be FIELDBUS (older) or ETHERNET (newer) systems

A blended strategy

IoT production deployments are underpinned by a carefully orchestrated connectivity layer, but there is an on-going debate about which network types and protocols are better suited for supporting mass sensor deployments.

Smartphones just get smarter

??Today’s smartphones continue to push the envelope in terms of capability and new models are able to deliver not just high-quality photos and 8K videos, but can now support console-quality games and allow users to connect to the internet at multi-gigabit data rates.
