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?
Electronically Securing IoT Devices for the Future
As IoT-connected devices continue to rise in popularity, there is a growing need to secure them against cyber-attacks that plague the internet daily and continue to grow in prominence. These threats have the potential to access sensitive information—to the extent that conventional anti-virus and firewall solutions will not suffice.
The Appeal Behind Designing Low-Power Electronics
In 1947, William Shockley, alongside a team of physicists at Bell Labs, demonstrated the first practical transistor, one of the earliest efforts at low power electronic design. The transistor replaced the bulky and energy-demanding vacuum tubes used at the time and paved the way for smaller electronics with lower power consumption.
Electronic Device Security Experts Weigh in on Insecure Electronics Use by the Military
At the end of last month, a report by the Pentagon's inspector general revealed the US Department of Defense (DoD) spent over $32.8 million in the 2018 fiscal year on electronics with known security vulnerabilities.
Could 5G Deployment Really Pose A Security Risk?
5G is the next generation of wireless communication technologies that will be used by future mobile devices all over the world. As with the standards that came before it, 5G promises vastly better performance—it will substantially increase data transfer speeds, improve reliability, and greatly reduce latency.
The Major Differences in Electrical Standards Between the U.S. and Europe
Working on an electrical engineering project for a country other than the one you were educated in is going to be a major challenge—especially when you consider that almost every country in Europe has its own version of electrical standards and codes.
Cal Test CT4140A 4mm Fuse Adapter Prioritises User and Electrical Safety Measures
Cal Test Electronics has unveiled a new 4mm fuse adapter, setting their sights on ultimate flexibility and electrical safety. The CT4140A is designed to accommodate a variety of electrical applications, delivering on its potential as an essential tool for engineers.
How Much Time Do Electrical Engineers Spend on Testing and Inspection?
Virtually every residential building, facility, or industrial plant requires myriad electrical systems to run various processes. This calls for extensive testing and inspection to ensure the reliability of assets and user safety.
Smiths Interconnect Waterproof M23 Circular Connector Series
Many industrial applications are in need of robust, waterproof interconnectors that can be used for submersible motors and pumps in underwater environments. Accordingly, it is also required that these connectors maintain the same high electrical and mechanical durability even under dry conditions.
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.
