Environmental Sensors and Monitoring Systems May Replace Standalone and Integrated Sensors
Environmental sensors and monitoring systems are undoubtedly going to become more prevalent in the future as global power consumption grows—and great efforts are made to reach and maintain optimal levels of efficiency.
Robotics and Soft Bioelectronic Interfaces Lab Partnership Results in Electrode-Based Artificial Skin Prototype
The EPFL's (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) Reconfigurable Robotics Lab and the Laboratory for Soft Bioelectronic Interfaces have partnered to create silicone and electrode-based artificial skin, which could be used to aid rehabilitation and enhance VR applications.
The Practical Uses for Quantum Sensors in Electrical Engineering Applications
It might seem like the word “quantum” is being tacked on to everything these days, and it’s clear that just how quantum a new device or development is can vary by quite a lot. One new area where the term is applied with some validity is the fascinating world of quantum sensors.
German Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems Develops Ultrasound Transducer to Assist in Medical Diagnosis
A brand-new type of ultrasound otoscope has been developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) and is expected to facilitate faster and more reliable diagnoses of middle ear infections.
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.
