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.

Far from dead - VME is still alive and kicking.

When confronted with the question 'is VME dead?', what comes to mind is Mark Twain's famed response to his supposed demise – 'reports of its death are exaggerated'. VME, still the de facto open standard board architecture of choice for the embedded defence and aerospace market after 30 years, remains vital and healthy, both as a technology and as a 'culture' in the VITA Standards Organisation (VSO).

Core to the fore

What's so special about Intel's Core i7 processor and why is it finding a lot of industrial applications?

In good shape

UK electronics is in good shape and capitalising on the nation's 'can do' engineering heritage.

Chilling out

One common question with serial RapidIO (sRIO) boards is how to support hot swap. Generically speaking, hot swapping should be easy – simply insert or remove the hardware, with some expectation that data transmission will restart.

Take up takes off

New markets demanding high availability systems with minimum downtime are a ‘steal’ for the ATCA and MicroTCA sector.

Born and bred

Will ‘new kid on the block’ MicroTCA be mature enough to eventually outgrow its older ATCA sibling?

Another dimension

Feeling the squeeze? Flexible printed circuits can offer a new dimension to designers looking to make savings in space and weight. By Keith Netting.

The big squeeze

How the latest high power interconnect solutions can help designers out of a tight spot. By Mike Richardson.

Blade runner

Why blade servers can give you the edge in the thrust for increased processing power from smaller rack sizes. By Mike Richardson.

Getting up to speed

It’s more than just a race against time when it comes to getting new product introductions to market quickly. By Mike Richardson.

All for one

How the latest Jtag interfaces can be a useful ally in the fight to cut development time. By Mike Richardson.

The cutting edge

Competition in the open standards based blade market is heating up with the move to 10Gbit/s. By Roy Rubenstein.

Built to last

New telecoms and networking architectures are evolving fast. But are the ATCA and MicroTCA standards built to last? By Mike Richardson.

New flavour, cool taste

How designers are staying cool by developing a taste for metal substrates that remove heat from pcb mounted leds. By Mike Richardson.
