Electronically Securing IoT Devices for the Future
As IoT-connected devices continue to rise in popularity, there is a growing need to secure them against cyber-attacks that plague the internet daily and continue to grow in prominence. These threats have the potential to access sensitive information—to the extent that conventional anti-virus and firewall solutions will not suffice.
Addressing Energy Inefficiency in Wi-Fi Systems and Infrastructure
The intensive use of Wi-Fi communications has led to the growth of W-Fi infrastructure worldwide. Due to the huge amounts of data transmission, however, these consume a whole lot of power that is lost as heat. This shouldn't (and doesn't need to) be the case.
Electronic Device Security Experts Weigh in on Insecure Electronics Use by the Military
At the end of last month, a report by the Pentagon's inspector general revealed the US Department of Defense (DoD) spent over $32.8 million in the 2018 fiscal year on electronics with known security vulnerabilities.
Could 5G Deployment Really Pose A Security Risk?
5G is the next generation of wireless communication technologies that will be used by future mobile devices all over the world. As with the standards that came before it, 5G promises vastly better performance—it will substantially increase data transfer speeds, improve reliability, and greatly reduce latency.
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.
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.
