Toshiba’s Multifunctional TLP5231 IGBT/MOSFET Gate Driver
Toshiba has launched the TLP5231 dual output IGBT/MOSFET (insulated-gate bipolar transistor/metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor) gate driver equipped with additional built-in functionality—intended to simplify the development process for a wide range of applications for engineers.
The Use of Hardware Description Language for Digital System Synthesis
Design, verification, and synthesis are all processes that electronics engineers go through to manufacture digital systems. Such processes can be achieved via hardware description language (HDL), for which Very High Speed Integrated Circuit HDL and Verilog are two of the chief examples. We discuss HDL and the various processes that electronics engineers use for digital system synthesis.
Engineers and Medical Researchers Band Together to Design a 3D-Printed Open Source Ventilator
In several nations across the world where COVID-19 is at or is approaching its peak, ventilators are in short supply and demand is growing at a rapid rate. But could a group of Internet denizens supply us with more?
Reducing the Spread of Illness Through AI, Big Data, and Robotics
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is now a global pandemic and has spread worldwide. As China responded to the virus, it leaned heavily on its technology sector, more specifically artificial intelligence (AI), data science, and robotics to fight it.

A New Li-ion Battery for Electric Vehicles Can Last for a Million Miles
Researchers are constantly working on increasing the power and life cycle of batteries that we use in electric vehicles (EVs) while simultaneously maintaining safety standards. Now, a team from Penn State University are reported to have produced a battery that can last for 1 million miles.
Generative Design: A Breakthrough in 3D Printing?
As 3D printing’s popularity grows, one of the new areas that it has opened up—generative design—has become a hot topic. Are its benefits to product design and engineering as prevalent as we’re told? We define generative design, consider the industrial implications, and ultimately consider this question.
