Optoelectronics

Optoelectronics play a critical role in the electronics industry. At one end, it provides the isolation needed in industrial systems. At the other, optoelectronics enables the transmission of data around the world using fibre optic cables.

In this section, New Electronics keeps visitors up to date with developments in the optoelectronics market, covering topics ranging from optocouplers to lasers to infrared emitters.

An evolution in testing

The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) produces globally applicable standards for information and communications technologies and TÜV SÜD currently sits on the ETSI task group.

Xometry: Saving Your Project Time with On-Demand Manufacturing

Saving time is one of the main considerations when manufacturing parts in the electronics industry, as well as ensuring good quality and low costs. But it is also one of the most challenging aspects in terms of management. The standard process for getting custom parts manufactured can take several months with issues arising as early on as the provider search and quoting stage.

Delivering reliable communications

At the heart of Industry 4.0 is a reliable communications infrastructure that enables data to be extracted from machines, field devices, and factories and delivers trusted and precise operation.

The never-ending quest for bandwidth

You can tell that Shannon’s Law provides little further scope for improving cellular bandwidth: it’s forcing the architects of what will form the 6G cellular standard to consider all manner of options.

A critical issue

With more cyber-attacks than ever on critical infrastructure, how can utilities actively counter these growing threats?

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

Building better

The construction industry, like many other sectors of the economy, has and continues to experience challenging circumstances, whether that’s been the impact of Covid-19 or having to deal with new regulations such as energy efficiency standards.

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.

Wi-fi urgently needs more spectrum

If we have learned anything in the past year, it is the importance of the internet to keep us connected – Internet access is no longer the luxury commodity it was in years gone by, but a necessary component of everyday life.

Throwing a light on Bluetooth

COVID-19 and the resulting pandemic has effectively shifted growth in Bluetooth annual device shipments out by one year, according to a new report from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).
