Becoming a Professional Engineer in the United States: What Every Electrical Engineer Should Know
According to the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), a professional engineering licence is the highest standard of competence, while also being an assurance of quality—and, of course, an overall symbol of achievement in the engineering profession.
The Changing Needs of IC Packaging
IC (integrated circuit) packaging innovations are driven by need: the need for greater bandwidth, less latency, and more functionality on a single chip—just to name a few. These needs have resulted in new approaches to both packaging and its manufacture that have the potential to revolutionise electronics.
The Key Insights We’ve Learned from the Annual State of European Tech 2019 Report
The 2019 State of European Tech Report, released in late November, highlights that tech continues to drive the growth of the European economy. Prepared by Atomico in partnership with Orrick and Slush, it reveals that Europe is set to receive more than $30 billion in tech investments this year.
How the U.S. Trade Tariffs Are Impacting Electronics Component Manufacturers
A possible trade deal between the U.S. and China is in the works according to Washington officials, but don’t hold your breath: the tariffs are already affecting electronics manufacturers, and while everyone anxiously awaits a deal and its details, tension in the industry is high.
A New Approach to Transistor Stacking Proposed by University of Michigan Researchers
Silicon integrated circuits are very quickly approaching the maximum workable density of transistors on a single chip. Now, a team of University of Michigan engineers has stacked a second layer of transistors directly on top of an existing silicon chip.
The EU Sponsors a RISC-V European Platform for Space and Aviation Markets
A new European project called De-RISC is preparing a hardware-software platform based on RISC-V for the space and aviation market. De-RISC plans to create a market-ready platform for future space and aviation applications with European technology.
Texas Instruments Overvoltage Reset IC for Low Voltage Supply Systems
The TPS3870-Q1 overvoltage reset integrated circuit (IC from Texas Instruments is an overvoltage monitor or reset IC also known as a voltage supervisor. The device uses a voltage comparator for overvoltage detection and is suitable for systems that operate on low voltage supply.
