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.
The ‘Beyond 5G’ Wireless Transceiver and The Future of High Speed Connectivity
A new radio chip from the University of California, Irvine (UCI), may have already paved the way for futuristic 6G, despite 5G cellular network standard still being in its infancy. Developed by electrical engineers at UCI’s Nanoscale Communication Integrated Circuits labs, the product promises to deliver up to 4 times greater speed and significantly higher bandwidth than 5G.
CEO of Dutch Start-Up NOWI on Boosting Sensor and IoT Development with Energy Harvesting Technology
Simon van der Jagt, CEO and co-founder of NOWI, has spent the past few years developing a new energy harvesting IC that uses external energy sources to power connected devices, which could help to overcome problems associated with battery-powered sensors and ultimately enable more effective IoT implementations.
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.
Meet Power Product Safety Standards with the Bourns SinglFuse Overcurrent Protection Line
In recent months, Bourns has announced significant expansions to their existing SinglFuse SMD fuse product line. Already an industry leader, it seems that Bourns is determined to provide the latest technology in circuit protection devices for a wide range of applications.
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.
