TE Connectivity’s Thermal Bridge Technology: Go Beyond Conventional Thermal Management Methods
With TE Connectivity’s newest thermal bridge technology, the propagation of heat has become more efficient as compared to conventional techniques. This system can withstand incredibly high thermal resistance which fulfills the requirement of increasing power consumption by various modern systems.
Basics of Instrumentation in Electrical Engineering
From automobile assembly to chemical plants and refineries—namely industries where automated process control is required—precise measurements are crucial. This article will introduce the basic concept of electrical instrumentation and some essential equipment for electrical engineers.
Digi-Key Electronics Partners with Analog Devices to Develop Innovative MeasureWare Platform
Developed for the partnership between Digi-Key and Analog Devices, MeasureWare enables Digi-Key customers to hastily kickstart designs by providing immediate and seamless access to availability and pricing of products.
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.
How Engineers Work Today: Situations That Require Collaboration in the Engineering Field
In a typical product development lifecycle (PDLC), several professionals are involved in bringing the design to life: the engineering teams that perform front-end engineering design and backend software development, product designers that specify design requirements, supply chain professionals that handle supplies and logistics, and project managers that oversee all activities of the cross-functional team at a high level.
Understanding and Minimising Power Loss in Electric Devices and Power Systems
Many types of power losses can occur in electric circuits for a multitude of reasons: troubling electrical engineers (EEs), they cause a host of problems that affect the efficiency, reliability, and safety of the systems that EEs design and build. Understanding how and where these losses occur—including heating, eddy current, and switching losses—can help engineers to keep them at a bare minimum.
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.
Circuit Protection Devices That Ensure the Safety and Reliability of Electrical Circuits
Every electrical engineer charged with the responsibility of designing and building electrical systems must ensure that they are reliable, safe, and durable. But sometimes, things could go awry: burnt PCBs and components, static shocks, and tripped circuit breakers are just some of the myriad technical issues that come from inadequate circuit protection.
Right to Repair Electronics is Essential to Product Design
The conversation around the right to repair has always been contemptuous, often pitting consumers against companies. Though international electronics brands are household names, they often lack meaningful brick-and-mortar presences in many countries.
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.
A Guide to Basic Electronic Test Equipment for Electrical Engineers
Testing is a vital aspect of design and production for electromechanical devices. The need to verify, simulate, or monitor the behaviour of individual components and overall electric circuits exists to ensure the stability and reliability of the final products. Testing is also essential for troubleshooting faults in electronics after production.
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.
