Aerospace

Electronics is becoming increasingly important to the aerospace sector. With the development of X by wire systems and the start of a move to more electric aeroplanes, those involved in the sector, as well as those looking to enter the aerospace supply chain, need to keep up to date.

New Electronics covers developments in the aerospace sector, bringing technology updates and opinion from the market.

Navigating Covid-19

“It’s almost Darwinian out there”, according to one CEO who spoke to New Electronics and, with the impact of Covid-19 yet to be fully played out, it’s likely that only those companies that are able to adapt to the changes brought about by the pandemic and the challenges of recession that will be the ones to survive.

All electric aviation

Cutting carbon emissions could form an essential part of post-Covid-19 recovery plans for the aviation sector. Could that help to accelerate the development of all-electric aviation?

Reslient growth within space technology

After 60 years today’s space market encompasses not only traditional space companies but private ventures promising and, in some cases, providing launch services, space tourism, the commercialisation of near zero gravity and the introduction of constellations of low earth orbiting satellites delivering high speed connectivity and near real-time imagery.

Transforming technology innovation

Xilinx has established itself as the dominant player in the FPGA market over the past few years and it’s a market which, according to analysts, could be on course to be worth in excess of $120billion by 2026.

Celebrating engineering excellence in the UK

Celebrating all that is best, most innovative and deserving of praise this year’s British Engineering Excellence Awards, now in its tenth year, lived up to its reputation of applying rigour and a laser-like focus on identifying excellence when it comes to selecting category winners and then deciding on which of those should go on to be declared the winner of the Grand Prix, in essence, the ‘Best of the Best’.

A bird's eye view of SWAP

In ancient China, tethered kites were deployed to gain an aerial advantage over the enemy. Later, armies used hot air balloons for aerial attack and information gathering and, shortly after the Wright brothers’ first flight in 1903, aeroplanes were used in small and large scale battles, before the First World War.

A far deeper confrontation

What are the implications for the electronics industry from the on-going trade dispute between the US and China, and is it simply part of a much deeper strategic confrontation?

Making connections

PCB Design and Manufacturing Live opens its doors for a second year, welcoming a host of the industry’s PCB experts.

Deploying technology in space

When selecting and using electronic components in space they will need to be reliable and capable of surviving the harsh conditions they’ll experience over an extended period of time.

Taking a lead

The setting up of the new Future Networks Lab looks to support and enable the adoption of IoT, LPWAN and 5G technologies.

Securing our airports

A the end of 2018 Gatwick airport and the UK authorities were forced to bring in military teams, using advanced techniques developed on the battlefield, to search for an unauthorised drone buzzing the airport’s runway.

How accurate are the claims that the commercialisation of 5G is imminent??

Last month saw over 2500 people from over 70 countries gather at a 4G/5G Summit organised in Hong Kong by Qualcomm. It was a chance for carriers, equipment providers, OEMs and software providers to come together to discuss how the industry was working to make 5G a reality and, despite accusations of hype, it appears that they are nearer to realising 5G than was previously the case – even just a few months ago.

Digital dilemma

As the amount of data soars and computational power accelerates, data centres are set to have a bigger carbon footprint than the aviation industry. What can be done to address this?

Break the stereotype

The gender gap is closing. Around 11% of the engineering workforce is female – that is a 2% rise from 2015 figures, according to the Women’s Engineering Society. It’s great to see that more women are deciding to enter into STEM, but it’s a slow journey.
