Critical Engineering Skills For the Future: Readying for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the UK
Engineering is vital to the UK’s economy: it provides quality employment alongside some vital solutions to major global challenges. However, the UK, similarly to the rest of Europe, has been experiencing a skills gap. Faced with the fourth industrial revolution and more, will the UK have the volume of engineering talent it needs to remain a key player?
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.
The Challenges Associated with 3D IC Implementation
A new trend of vertically-stacked integrated circuits (or circuitry) is being touted as a means to decelerate Moore’s law. Set to meet electronic device requirements like lower power consumption and higher performance, 3D integration is piquing the interest of several design teams who plan to efficiently pack high functionality into small form factors. There are, however, both advantages and challenges alike.
