AI set to transform healthcare

The use of artificial intelligence (AI), including machine learning (ML) and deep learning techniques (DL), is poised to become a transformational force in healthcare.

Addressing hearing loss

A hearable can be defined as ‘a wireless in-ear computational earpiece’ that is able to fit inside the ear canal and then uses wireless technology to supplement and enhance a listener’s experience.

You’re not on your own!

Modern design techniques allow engineers to focus on their unique value add, rather than having to reinvent the wheel for every new invention.

Battery health & safety

Lithium-ion batteries are popular because they have a number of important advantages.They’re lighter when compared to other types of rechargeable battery and lithium, being highly reactive, can store a lot of energy in its atomic bonds.

Squeezing every drop!

The Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, digital health and greater prevalence of wearable electronics all rely heavily on the use of sensing devices that it simply won’t be practical to plug into a mains socket.

Raising the game

Wearable technology is being used to change the way in which performance analysis is carried out in football, as Laëtitia Omnès explains.

Paging Dr Beep

The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a bright light on the capacity of the healthcare system to cope with the numbers who need to access it.

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.

Securing the Things

With the IoT industry calling for common standards and infrastructure it’s fair to say that the industry is very much in its infancy; certainly not mature anyway.

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.
