Internal cellular antennas suit 5G, IoT applications
The new Revie Flex series internal cellular antennas from Laird Connectivity are now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.
Drones set to be smart agricultural tool for pesticides
Drones could soon be adopted as essential tools for various agricultural tasks; however, with respect to their use in farm management, research is still lacking. To address this issue, researchers in Japan compared drones to well-established technologies for spraying pesticide over rice paddy fields.
Channel emulation toolset speeds 5G NTN deployment
The S8825A Satellite and Aerospace Channel Emulation Toolset from Keysight Technologies delivers advanced channel emulation capabilities that can speed deployment of non-terrestrial networks (NTN) vital to many new 5G services.
One wire communication between two SLG46811
Many devices within the same design can communicate using different protocols (SPI, I2C, etc.). As is to be expected, most of these protocols require several dedicated lines for communication. However, there are many different applications in which the number of available wires is strictly limited and often times only one wire is available to send the data.

Specifications issued for wireless to DALI Gateways
The DALI Alliance (DiiA), the global industry organisation for DALI lighting control, has published specifications for wireless to DALI Gateways that define how DALI lighting products can be incorporated into two widely-used, non-DALI wireless ecosystems, namely Bluetooth mesh and Zigbee.
Industrial robots in the factory of the future
Industrial robots are pervasive in manufacturing and their applications are increasing all the time. But with constant multi-axis movements, the cables that supply robots are subjected to extreme levels of stress, posing a challenge for manufacturers of cables and other connecting components.
Portable photorejuvenation devices market to record 6.8% CAGR
Rise in prevalence of skin problems coupled with demand for non-invasive treatments is expected to drive photorejuvenation devices market trends. Over the past few years, there has been a growing craze for aesthetic transformations such as hair removal, wrinkle reduction and tattooing.
Sheffield Forgemasters adopt cobot assistance
Sheffield Forgemasters has adopted collaborative robotic (Cobot) assistance for some of its Foundry operatives, dramatically reducing exposure to vibration, improving safety and increasing productivity within its fettling operations.
Three sectors ready to be revolutionised by big data
Big data has revolutionised production processes in all industrial sectors, but some have been slower than others to understand the potential of what is now considered the most precious resource in the world. Here Neil Ballinger, Head of EMEA at automation parts supplier EU Automation, has delved deeper into how big data is revolutionising three historically low-tech sectors.
The many routes to 1,000 mile battery electric vehicles
It is easy to make 1000-mile battery-electric vehicles, and the effect on market uptake will be profound. For example, a typical city-dweller today might charge only once every two months and vacation where chargers are rare.
