Critical Factors of Circuit Protection in Consumer Electronics
Consumer electronics such as smartphones, laptops, and TV sets require adequate circuit protection to prevent operation that can cause harm to users or varying levels of damage to electronic products, impacting their efficiency and reliability.
International Women in Engineering Day: How It Aims to ‘Shape the Engineering World’ for Female Engineers
International Women in Engineering Day 2020 (INWED20), will be in its seventh year this year and with COVID-19-related restrictions across the globe, the annual event has its work cut out like never before.
The Use of Hardware Description Language for Digital System Synthesis
Design, verification, and synthesis are all processes that electronics engineers go through to manufacture digital systems. Such processes can be achieved via hardware description language (HDL), for which Very High Speed Integrated Circuit HDL and Verilog are two of the chief examples. We discuss HDL and the various processes that electronics engineers use for digital system synthesis.
Generative Design: A Breakthrough in 3D Printing?
As 3D printing’s popularity grows, one of the new areas that it has opened up—generative design—has become a hot topic. Are its benefits to product design and engineering as prevalent as we’re told? We define generative design, consider the industrial implications, and ultimately consider this question.
IoT Device Vulnerabilities Are Increasing with No End in Sight
With demand for internet of things technology increasing exponentially, engineers are creating more and more devices on a monthly basis. But, as malware attacks continue to rise, it seems digital security teams can’t keep up with the vulnerabilities.
What AI Can Do for Tech Development — and What It Can’t
While AI, or artificial intelligence, is already revolutionising all manner of industries, it is nevertheless nothing more than a system. We look at what AI is at its crux, consider its industrial implications, and ultimately cover its limitations.
How Can the Electronics Industry Tap into the Potential of 5G?
5G may one day be a universal communication feature, but so far, it is still far from ready. We look at what is holding it back in the consumer world, and what engineers and manufacturers can do to help both its integration in towns and cities—which may ultimately involve increasing the fifth generation’s capabilities in the industrial IoT.
