Technology Filtered by - Interface/Interconnect

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Interface/Interconnect sector. Advances in electronics are often fast-paced and innovative, so we know that as a design engineer you want to be kept up-to-date with current developments.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the latest electronics technology news from New Electronics.

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

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.

Raising core-infrastructure performance

Moving, managing, and analysing data is at the heart of everything, from remote IoT endpoints capturing data to always-connected personal IoT devices, and the growing reliance on AI-centric applications for enterprise and scientific research.

Reality can wait

Since Ivan Sutherland demonstrated the Sword of Damocles half a century ago, head-mounted virtual reality (VR) systems have promised a bright future for human-computer interaction.

Rival networks emerge to capitalise on 5G

The first release of the new 5G standard made headlines, partly because a completely new standard is a relatively rare event, but also because of what the complex 5G standard means for the industry and users.

Entangled secrets

Three years after its launch into Earth orbit, a Chinese satellite has steadily been extending the reach of an encryption technology that is practically unbreakable.

Servers slowly open the door to light

If you want to send a high-data rate signal more than a few centimetres optical is the smartest choice. At least that is the case if you look at the big picture. Optical wins every time in a straight shootout of energy per bit and bit density.

Secure facilities

The large variety of machines and plants that has mushroomed over many years is increasingly being networked for monitoring and maintenance purposes.

Addressing network security

Every day, organisations see an increasing number of devices being added to their network, ranging from smartphones and tablets, to Internet of Things (IoT).

Virtual content

The BBC continues to invest heavily in virtual and augmented reality. Bethan Grylls looks at how it plans to utilise AR/VR to deliver content.

Closing the gap

Smart home technology has been promising much, for so long, but helped by new wireless standards and the use of voice technology is it now beginning to deliver?

A world connected

This year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) was described by John Hoffmann, the CEO of the GSMA (the event organisers), as a bringing together of a “global ecosystem spanning multiple sectors and reflecting the expanding role of mobile connectivity.”

Bringing Home Automation to Life with Open Source Technology

Easier consumer access to high-performance computing and wireless technologies means the home automation sector could finally be about to take off. Open source hardware could be critical in this being accomplished - helping engineers to deliver solutions quickly and cost-effectively.

Introduction to Bluetooth 5

The latest version of the Bluetooth standard introduces a number of improvements that will be of value to many applications but will perhaps be most important for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Flash storage in networking infrastructure needs to focus on reliability, quality and data retentions

The infrastructure to support and grow connectivity is constantly evolving, and encompasses telecommunications, data communications and data centres. The processing and storage applications in that infrastructure stretches from base stations to subscriber lines, through a hierarchy of routers and switches. As the amount of digital traffic continues to expand, the need for fast and reliable storage only increases.
