The automotive industry is adapting wireless technologies, such as the 802.11p standard, within connected cars’ for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications. With these advanced wireless connectivity capabilities come new design and test challenges for engineers. Providing accurate transmitter and receiver physical layer test is a key priority. Learn how Keysight signal generation and analysis test solutions are used to ensure connected car communications.

The annual Hitex ARM Conference returns for 2016 on the 24th November, with a focus on modern wireless communications and the issues surrounding them such as safety and security in the IoT age.

The agenda for the 2016 Hitex ARM Conference is as full and informative as ever. With a total of 13 speakers (4 of which are keynotes) delegates will be kept engaged for the duration of the day. The line up reads like a "who's who" list for the embedded industry: with new announcements across the board, industry insight and knowledge sharing driving the content of all speaker slots, attendees can be sure that they will be spoilt for choice between the two streams.


QGen is a qualifiable and customizable code generation and model verification/debugging toolset for a safe subset of Simulink® and Stateflow® models. Particularly suited for safety-critical automotive real-time control systems, QGen generates code in MISRA C and SPARK and is tightly integrated with AdaCore’s qualifiable emulation and structural coverage analysis tools.

Introducing the new CMx surface mount resistor series: high stability, even at low levels of performance.

The new CMx series meets the market demand for reduced technical performance but still provides key features such as high long-term stability, optimum temperature coefficients and high load capacity. The new resistors work in the temperature range from -65°C up to +170°C and are available in the standard sizes 2512, 2010 and 1206, making them suitable as components in vehicle applications. In the automotive sector, they comply with the AEC-Q200 specifications and fulfil the criteria of RoHS 2011/65/EU.

Make your UI SHINE with AMOLED

If you’ve looked at the latest tablet displays and thought “that’s the look I’d like on my next project” you need to visit andersDX on stand G30 at EDS. AMOLED (Active Matrix OLED) has been restricted to very high volume applications, but we are now offering it at much lower volumes for industrial, medical and automotive markets.

Engineering Design Show – Innovation in another dimension

Don’t miss the eye-catching and stimulating projects designed to amaze and astound in the Innovation Zone. Some of these projects will be made using components and materials being exhibited by the suppliers at the Engineering Design Show, and all the tools are available for engineers in the UK.

How accurate are your Power Measurements?

Yokogawa’s European Calibration Laboratory has become the world’s first non-governmental facility to receive full ISO17025 Accreditation for power measurements at up to 100 kHz. This is in addition to its established capability for providing high-accuracy calibration at 50 Hz, especially at very low power factors (down to 0.0001) and at high currents. This makes Yokogawa the only power meter manufacturer which can directly prove the performance of its own instruments. Only a Yokogawa Calibration Certificate gives the user trust in their instrument’s measurements. Read more to understand the capability.

High voltage, multicell battery stack monitor with isolated interface and guaranteed 0.04% accuracy.

The LTC6804 is a high voltage, multicell battery stack monitor that measures up to 12 series connected battery cells with a total measurement error of less than 1.2mV. The cell measurement range of 0V to 5V makes this device suitable for most battery chemistries. All 12 cell voltages can be captured in 290µs, and lower data acquisition rates can be selected for high noise reduction. Multiple LTC6804 devices can be connected in series, permitting simultaneous cell monitoring of long, high voltage battery strings. Each LTC6804 has an isoSPI interface for high speed, RF-immune, local area communications. In conjunction with Arrow Electronics Ltd.
