RTI Xcelerators for developing autonomous systems
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has announced RTI Xcelerators, a new program to provide customers access to expertise in architecting, developing and deploying complex distributed systems. Customers can use Xcelerators to maximise development efficiency, eliminate costly rework and accelerate project success.
Vibration sensors play a crucial role in advanced condition monitoring and predictive maintenance strategies. Here, Mark Patrick, Mouser Electronics, explains the pros and cons of the different accelerometer designs.
ASICs and SiPs - the perfect tech partner for smart sensors
Recent reports suggest as many as 20 billion devices could be connected to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in a market potentially worth over $200 billion within a few years. For manufacturers keen to ensure their production facilities remain competitive, they will need to embrace the IIoT where the physical world is connected to the digital via smart sensors. Swindon Silicon explain.
An introduction to 10BASE-T1S
Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IP)-based networks are everywhere. You can find them in standard computer networks as well as in automotive, IoT and all kinds of automation applications. It has been around for almost 50 years. Henry Muyshondt, Senior Manager, Microchip Technology explains.
Simulation and modelling provides the key to shorter design cycles
Numerous circuit design and simulation tools are now available free of charge online, provided by component suppliers. When selecting passive components, which are pushed routinely to their absolute limits in demanding applications, specialised tools provide the extra information engineers need to ensure optimum performance and reliability. Wilmer Companioni, Senior Technical Marketing Manager at KEMET.
Connector sales growth belies a tough year ahead
Back in August we reported that, while the easing of the COVID 19 lockdown had many positive benefits, the pandemic would continue to have an ongoing and negative impact on the UK electronics and connectors industry. Just over three months later, the numbers reported by ITSA members for the third quarter clearly demonstrate how significant the impact has been. News that a vaccine could be available by the end of the year was a single major plus i...
electronica makes an impression with digital format
A total of 209 exhibitors from 25 countries presented their electronic industry solutions and products from November 9th to 12th, 2020, as part of electronica virtual, the virtual format of electronica. A total of 8,253 unique users from 79 countries learned about electronic innovations and trends of the future in virtual exhibition halls and during four digital conferences.
The issue with burring in metalworking
When it comes to sheet metalworking, there are a number of methods which spring to mind. Traditionally, metal stamping and laser cutting have been used to create precision components for a variety of industries. However, these methods – despite being widely used – are not without their limitations, with burring being a common problem.
Securing IoT solutions with Winbond Flash Memory in Industry 4.0
The fourth industrial revolution is being fueled by data and machine learning, and is defined by the digital transformation of factories through the convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) at scale. Dubbed ‘Industry 4.0’, it has already empowered many factories to become 'smarter' through real time monitoring, AI-driven decision making, autonomous manufacturing, and even predicting market demand.
Infineon sets standards at the virtual electronica
Under the motto 'We are the link between the real and the digital world', Infineon Technologies is launching its trade show offerings for electronica 2020 on the Internet. For the first time, the Cypress product portfolio will also be on display here. Interested parties can register on the Infineon website and will have the opportunity to obtain comprehensive information about new products, application solutions and market trends from 10th N...
