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.
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.
The Blockchain-based ‘Handshake’ Solution: an Answer to DNS Security Issues
The traditional application of any domain name system may be tried and true, but it’s prone to vulnerabilities and censorship. The new network solution, ‘Handshake’, introduces a decentralised—namely blockchain-based—angle on DNSs that could be the answer.
TSMC and Purdue University Partner on Secured Microelectronics Ecosystem
On Friday 14th June, Purdue University and the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) announced their plans to establish a Center for Secured Microelectronics Ecosystem to ensure a secure supply of chips from foundry to system.
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.
WWDC 2019 Roundup: Exciting New Tools for Developers and Engineers
On June 3rd, Tim Cook and company took to the stage during Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The Apple WWDC typically showcases upcoming software updates, though Apple does occasionally unveil new hardware. This year was no different.
ADI’s Senior Field Applications Engineer, Thomas Brand, Talks Industry 4.0 and Cyber Security
With no stopping the rising, urgent importance of cyber security in Industry 4.0, Analog Devices is a prominent example of a manufacturer that’s proving prepared. Thomas Brand, senior field applications engineer (FAE) at ADI, shares the specific systems they’ve put in place.
Securing Medtech Devices Now Possible Through Signal Manipulation
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have your information secured with something uniquely yours, then your own body is as close as it gets. Thanks to new technology, medical data can now be protected from breaches using the human body as the encryption medium.
Arm’s VP of IoT Cloud Services Shares The Greatest Challenges in IoT Utilities
As the IoT grows ever more crucial, the same goes for efficient and secure IoT deployments, especially in the increasingly-regulated utilities space. EP’s Sam Holland talked to SVP of software giant Arm’s IoT Cloud Services division, Himagiri Mukkamala, about his experience of optimising IoT solutions in the utilities sector, particularly in relation to Arm’s recent partnership with smart meter manufacturer, EDMI.
Multi-chip Modules That Meet Growing High Performance and Miniaturisation Standards
Due to the growing demand for compactness and greater efficiency in consumer electronics, Internet of Things, aerospace, defence, biotechnology industries and more, manufacturers face the challenge of designing systems with greater miniaturisation while being increasingly powerful. To achieve this, engineers must utilise smaller, more efficient components.
Barriers to IoT Medical Devices
The question of whether the IoT is revolutionising healthcare has long since been answered—IoT medical devices are completely changing the industry as we know it. Every new opportunity faces barriers and resistance, though, and IoT medical devices aren't immune from these.
Bluetooth 5.1: What the Latest in Generation 5 Has to Offer
‘Bluetooth’ is named after the English translation of ‘Blåtand’: the surname of King Harald Blåtand, who unified Denmark—so in his memory, it’s no surprise that the wireless standard has remained an important part of the connected world since the late ’90s. Now, it’s more communicative, efficient and scalable than ever: here’s a look at what’s putting the ‘.1’ in ‘Bluetooth 5.1’.
