New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Embedded Solutions 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.

Extreme boards!

“Extraordinary circumstances often bring along with them extraordinary strength,” wrote the political philosopher William Godwin.

The needs of the many

A decade ago, OLED was the hot technology of the future: the one to displace the backlit LCD panels that continue to dominate the market for flat-panel displays

Living with lithium

Batteries play a key role in a range of applications and are used in medical devices for increased safety of operation and for having the freedom to move instruments around in hospitals.

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.

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.

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.

AI: how low can you go?

Markets are subject to fads and the embedded-control sector is far from immune to them. In the 1990s, fuzzy logic seemed to be the way forward and microcontroller (MCU) vendors scrambled to put support into their offerings only to see it flame out.

The road to zero

As the demand for EVs accelerates so the need for an effective power charging infrastructure becomes critical.

Freeing humans from repetitive tasks

Located in Quebec City, Canada, the Robotiq company was set up with one aim in mind – to free human hands from repetitive tasks - and to that end it has been focused on developing a range of tools and software for the collaborative robotics (cobots) market.

How to use a clamp meter to measure inrush current

Inrush current effect is common in electric motors. Sometimes, in case of ill-designed electrical wiring systems, switching on the motor may activate the fuse. It is caused by the inrush current – when the motor starts, it takes the current much higher than the regular operating current or than the motor which is in a stable working mode. The effect is rather short-lasting. For example, for a 3-phase motor it lasts 75 to 150ms, but the current increases by 500% to 1200%, which may cause serious problems and malfunctions. Besides, the measurement of the inrush current is required in the maintenance of electric motors.

The hypervisor advantage

Operating Systems (OSs) like Linux and Android are widely used in embedded systems but being large, complex and inevitably containing numerous flaws once compromised, an attacker can violate the security and take control of the whole system.

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.
