Technology Filtered by - Board Level Design

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Board Level Design 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.

Trust no-one

Over the past decade, concern has grown over hardware Trojans: malicious circuitry placed in chips or boards.

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.

A question of scale

Is Moore's Law dead, dying or in rude health? It depends who you ask. In turn, it depends on how they are applying the ruler when it comes to measuring the scaling factors as semiconductor processes move down the nanometre curve.

Keeping it clean

Wearable medical devices allow people more control over their own health by letting them monitor themselves

Analogue AI feels the power

Deep learning has an energy problem. Model sizes have been spiralling up, and doing so at an increasing rate as users exploit cloud servers armed with graphics processing units to crunch the numbers.

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

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.

Board Meeting

The stacking and direct interconnection of PCBs is becoming increasingly popular. What are the benefits of developing the boards needed for a multi-board assembly on a single CAD canvas?

Faster FPGA verification

Launched in 2015, and used by about 20% of all VHDL FPGA designers, UVVM is one of the fastest growing verification methodologies in the EDA industry.

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.

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.

Revolutionising PCB production

The method of printing PCBs has not changed for decades. In the early days of imaging circuit boards a substrate (copper laminate) was screen printed with a liquid etch resist; this was then oven cured.

Interference on the move

When Daimler set about creating a test chamber for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) it wanted an artificial environment that would reflect the conditions its vehicle would meet on the roads of the future.

Time to break free

Are PCB designers ready for a world of printed electronics? If not, it might be prudent to start thinking about moving beyond traditional PCB design and considering how to approach this rapidly growing market.
