CEO of Dutch Start-Up NOWI on Boosting Sensor and IoT Development with Energy Harvesting Technology
Simon van der Jagt, CEO and co-founder of NOWI, has spent the past few years developing a new energy harvesting IC that uses external energy sources to power connected devices, which could help to overcome problems associated with battery-powered sensors and ultimately enable more effective IoT implementations.
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.
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.
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...
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.
Siemens’ PAVE360 Platform for Advanced Testing of Autonomous Vehicles
Siemens' PAVE360 program is designed to speed up the development and evaluation of autonomous vehicles. This new platform allows developers to test autonomous vehicle systems and other electronic components in an entirely virtual environment.
Britain’s First Hydrogen-powered Train Set to be Tested on Mainline Railways
BCRRE, Birmingham University's Centre for Railway Research and Education, in partnership with Porterbrook, announced last week that the UK's very first hydrogen train will soon be tested on the railway following a successful proof of concept.
Meet Power Product Safety Standards with the Bourns SinglFuse Overcurrent Protection Line
In recent months, Bourns has announced significant expansions to their existing SinglFuse SMD fuse product line. Already an industry leader, it seems that Bourns is determined to provide the latest technology in circuit protection devices for a wide range of applications.
What Sets ABET Accredited Engineering University Programmes Apart?
Is formal accreditation mandatory for engineering programmes? Does it really help students to find work more easily than those that have studied at a non-accredited institution? We analyse the various aspects of ABET accreditation in detail.
Skin-inspired Sensing: Sweden’s Linköping University Associate Professor Discusses Medical & Robotics Applications
Magnus Jonsson, associate professor at Sweden’s Linköping University, has led a research team in the development of a pyroelectricity and thermoelectricity-based sensor, whose pressure and temperature monitoring capabilities are modelled on human skin itself.
