China: NB-IoT forecasts strong growth in 2019

China: NB-IoT forecasts strong growth in 2019
"If 2017 is considered the first year of the NB-IoT era, and 2018 is the first year of its commercialisation, then 2019 will be the first year in history to fuel the development of NB-IoT," said Feng Dapeng, director and assistant general manager of the Huizhong Instrumentation. NB-IoT stands for Narrowband Internet of Things and is one of the two licensed Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies that have already begun to usher in a new era of mobile communications.

Security response management

Security response management
Keeping products secure is a requirement for survival, demanding vigilance in finding, applying, and distributing working patches to customers in the timeliest manner possible. While there is heightened awareness about device vulnerabilities, what is often missing is awareness about the process of managing the security response process itself.

Encoder output choices for best performance and signal integrity

Encoder output choices for best performance and signal integrity
Motion control applications typically require one or more position encoders. Several types are available and the engineer must first decide whether an incremental, absolute, or commutation encoder is most appropriate. After this decision has been made, other selection criteria include resolution and mechanical aspects, such as the mounting pattern and motor shaft size.  By Jason Kelly, Motion Control Design and Applications Engineer, CUI

The custom semiconductor market: more open than ever

The custom semiconductor market: more open than ever
  A popular trend among semiconductor giants has been to consume and consolidate. Reducing the amount of competition in the market while increasing volume output has been a great way of increasing profit. This process has left little option for low- to medium-volume customers.

New rugged laptops from Dell and trained to be tough

New rugged laptops from Dell and trained to be tough
The world’s toughest jobs require some of the toughest training, and that very same discipline has yielded the next generation of Dell’s Rugged notebooks. Each system is tested over and over again to surpass standards and set the 'toughness' bar higher. From factories to first responders, warehouse work to off-shore oil rigs, our customers need dependability, connectivity and 24/7 performance. And Dell is the only tier-1 vendor with ruggedised notebooks, 2-in-1s, and tablets to tackle the hard stuff.

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.
