Technology Filtered by - Backplanes & Boards

New Electronics strives to bring you all the latest technology news from the Backplanes & Boards 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.

Senses working overtime

The next generation of IoT sensors will provide devices with local intelligence that will measure a wide range of physical parameters, process this data locally and share the data on the cloud.

Examining whether to gel or pad

New electronic product generations bring new challenges associated with thermal management and there are two general types of thermal interface materials: gels (or dispensable gap fillers) and gap filler pads which can be used.

Extreme boards!

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

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.

Easy as Pi

Sony Corporation’s electronics manufacturing arm, based in Wales, is pioneering the use of the Raspberry Pi single board computer (SBC) to bring its Industry 4.0 vision to life.

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.

Keeping it clean

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

Antenna integration

Embedded antennas, also known as chip antennas, or SMD (surface mount design) antennas, are used in on-board devices, small trackers, remote monitoring, Femto/PICO base stations, point of sale terminals, and smart meters.

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

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?

You’re not on your own!

Modern design techniques allow engineers to focus on their unique value add, rather than having to reinvent the wheel for every new invention.

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.

Quality and reliability

In the military market the use of the correct connectors and cable solutions are critical and engineers are becoming ever more meticulous when it comes to their selection.

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.
