Electronic medical devices are going invisible

Electronic medical devices are going invisible
Wearable tech was born at the point where wireless connected technology grew up and became, paradoxically, smaller. Today, integrated tech that can be discretely worn by users is everywhere – from music and fashion to fitness. Whether it’s smartwatches, heart rate trackers or even clothing, there’s no shortage of integrated, miniaturised tech that allows us to keep tabs on ourselves as we go about our everyday life.

AC-DC efficiency measurements need to include power factor

AC-DC efficiency measurements need to include power factor
Power converter designers compete to minimise losses, chasing the last decimal points of efficiency, η, the ratio of output to input power. But when it comes to calculating efficiency in AC-DC power supplies mistakes are often made as a result of omitting or improperly measuring power factor, which is why it is important for designers to understand power factor basics and how to incorporate it.

Element separation in safety critical and mixed criticality systems

Element separation in safety critical and mixed criticality systems
As we are faced with increasing complexity and scale of software in safety critical systems, the trend towards workload consolidation platforms using multi-core processors brings entanglement and interference issues that complicate resource provisioning, predictability, understand-ability, element separation and, ultimately, certify-ability, security and safety.
