TE Connectivity Expands VAL-U-LOK Connectors For Higher Current Applications
TE Connectivity has recently expanded their VAL-U-LOK connector line to include high current 13 A connectors with a maximum 600VAC rating. This is a major addition to their existing portfolio of connectors and greatly expands its usefulness to higher power applications.
What It’s Like to Be a Female Engineer in a Male-Dominated Field
June 23rd, 2019, marked the fifth anniversary of the International Women in Engineering Day. The campaign, which celebrates the outstanding achievements of female engineers around the world, was first launched in the UK in 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society to celebrate their 95th anniversary.
EU Project TEMPO Aims to Produce AI Applications with Emerging Memory Technologies
We’ve witnessed the exponential growth of AI applications in recent years, much of it driven by small companies with large ambitions. However, the EU’s Project TEMPO constitutes a coordinated, European effort to strengthen AI’s future.
Female Engineers That Are Making A Name for Themselves in The Electrical Engineering Field
Despite the ongoing battle for female equality, today’s women electrical engineers have made a name for themselves both in engineering and in other fields like politics and business. This list includes several well-established figures, but also runs through some up-and-coming engineers who we can expect to make big leaps forward in their field over the next few decades.
The Growing Problem of Counterfeit Electronic Components
The electronics components industry is flourishing—with new suppliers showing up daily, many from abroad, and it becomes a greater challenge for companies to detect fake pieces and distinguish between the real deal and a bland, low-quality copy...
Pass Stress and High Temperature Test Requirements For ADAS Development with KEMET T598 Capacitors
Even though tantalum polymer capacitors have a lot of significant features like high volumetric efficiency, low equivalent series resistance, high capacitance, high ripple handling, etc, it has always been a great challenge to pass the Automotive Electronics Council's AEC-Q200 stress test...
How Organic Biodegradable Electronics Help Protect the Environment and Ourselves
Waste, and especially electronics waste, is a major issue that humanity needs to tackle if it’s to keep this planet in a viable condition long-term. Bioengineers have been working increasingly closely with electronics engineers to resolve this issue with multiple breakthroughs in the last 12 months.
Strategies for Minimising Electromagnetic Interference in Electronic Systems
Electromagnetic interference (EMI), aka 'electrical noise', is one of the most common problems observed in a variety of electrical and electronic circuits. Any kind of circuit that carries rapidly-changing electric currents is prone to electromagnetic (EM) disturbances via stray EM fields.
Modernising UK Engineering Education: A Q&A with NMiTE University’s Chief Academic Officer
NMiTE (New Model in Technology and Engineering) is the UK’s first approach to a fully engineering-focused higher education institution. Martin Gillie, provost and chief academic officer at NMiTE, explains what the organisation is doing differently to traditional universities.
How AR and AI Advancements Are Impacting Multiple Industries
AI has also emerged as a key player in the engineering realm. Businesses are increasingly pursuing automation, which is AI’s calling card. Such algorithm-based cognitive tasks can be time-consuming for humans. AI development constitutes an exciting new engineering frontier to explore as technology evolves. Both AR and AI are transforming the global productivity landscape.
