Technology Filtered by - Embedded & System Power

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Embedded & System Power 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.

Sensors get smarter

AutoSens, which was held at the world-famous AutoWorld museum in Brussels, Belgium, last month brought industry leaders together to look at and assess the most recent developments in the driver assistance market (ADAS).

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.

Discrete DRAM components v modules

A common practice when designing embedded computing systems for aerospace and defence applications is to use down-board DRAMs which are extremely reliable, have very efficient thermal ratings and the fastest electrical characteristics.

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.

Replacing silicon

In a world with mobiles, laptops and tablets the demand for low-voltage power adaptors has never been greater.

Hot chips take a bath

Liquid cooling has a chequered history. Once the only realistic option for mainframe computers, leaks and the costs of maintenance eventually saw pumps and heat exchangers replaced by fans and bladed heatsinks.

A new golden age

Does the creation of open domain-specific architectures herald a new age in terms of computer architecture?

Making connections

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

A flexible design process

Delivering a successful product from the ground-up in 14 short months requires a hardworking team, especially when that team is made up of 90 engineers located around the globe.

System success

“Software-defined testers will be critical in keeping up with the evolution in automotive design,” said Jeff Phillips, Head of Automotive Marketing at National Instruments (NI) in an interview with New Electronics last year.

Innovation unbound

Earlier this month the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) took place in Las Vegas, and with over 4,500 exhibitors and upwards of 180,000 visitors it remains the largest consumer electronics show in the US, with a global impact to match.

Can a transient effect rescue silicon power scaling?

The war with semiconductor physics claimed another victim at the end of August when GlobalFoundries decided it could no longer afford to continue work on a 7nm finFET process, or its successors, despite the efforts of teams that came originally from AMD and IBM. With deeper pockets, Intel, Samsung and TSMC are continuing but at some point even they will either run out of nanometres or the belief that they will find enough customers to pay for increasingly expensive wafers that may not justify the scaling benefit they achieve.

Will the attractions of embedded FPGA overcome traditional cost objections and finally see accelerated growth?

Twenty years ago, it looked like a concept that was ready for primetime: putting programmable logic inside ASICs and SoCs. At the time, the move seemed inevitable. ASIC mask prices were rising fast, driven by the need to pull more and more from a bag of optical tricks to keep Moore’s Law on track. The cost of respins alone seemed enough to persuade designers to leave some reprogrammable “sewing kits” in their SoCs to let them iron out bugs after tapeout instead of committing tens of thousands of dollars more to the project to get some new masks.
