Digital Technologies Are Shaping the Future of Engineering
Digital processes have already redefined how companies approach manufacturing from an efficiency standpoint. Additionally, the electrical engineering industry has benefited immensely from the proliferation of modern digital tools. These evolving technologies continue to influence how teams and businesses operate on a daily basis.
Detect and Convert Low Frequency Vibrations in IIoT Applications with KEMET VS Vibration Sensors
KEMET’s VS Vibration Sensors have a 10Hz to 1,5000Hz frequency range, and the ability to detect even the most feeble levels of vibration throughout a large sensing bandwidth—making them ideal for industrial applications.
Safety Soldering Procedures for Electrical Engineers
Every electrical engineer has, at some point, come into contact with a soldering iron and some rolled up piece of solder. Surprisingly, there are scores of engineers who say they have had long careers where they never had to use a soldering iron. In practice, many electrical engineers won’t need to do much or any soldering at all in modern jobs, thanks to surface mount technology and “plug and play” electronics design.
Has the Limits of Processing Power Been Reached?
As technology advances, so too does the need for more computing power to handle the explosive volumes of data generated. With growing trends in autonomous driving, high-bandwidth data transfer, and cloud computing, leading chipmakers are striving to push out lightning-fast processors every year through many manufacturing and design techniques.
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.
Chirp Microsystems MEMS-based Ultrasonic Time-of-Flight Sensor for Automotive and Industrial Applications
A Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor works by sending out a signal (usually ultrasound or light) and waiting for it to bounce back from an obstacle and return to the sensor. The distance to the object can then be calculated from the time it took for the signal to return.
STMicroelectronics’ X-NUCLEO-IKS01A3 MEMS and Environmental Sensor Evaluation Board
STMicroelectronics’ X-NUCLEO-IKS01A3 micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) and environmental sensor evaluation board is a miniature micro-mechatronic device designed for a broad range of sensor applications, as well as for prototyping and product evaluation.
