Demystifying Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology
The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to add intelligence to commercial systems in offices, shopping malls and even warehouses. Smart offices are modern marvels, reducing energy use while improving the workspace. Malls and stadiums use wireless connectivity to better serve customers and track occupancy numbers. Sensors and RF tags continue to revolutionise asset tracking in warehouses. Charlie Ice, Senior Product Manager, Power Products, Si...
The accuracy and cost benefits of precision
As Farhana Sarder of ON Semiconductor explains, general purpose op amps aren’t all purpose op amps.
A new approach to oscilloscope analysis
Debugging embedded systems often involves looking for clues that are hard to discover just by looking at one domain at a time. The ability to look at time and frequency domains simultaneously can offer important insights. Lee Morgan of Tektronix explains further.
Using a Device Firmware Monitor (DFM) to deal with software bugs
Johan Kraft, CEO and Founder of Percepio, introduces a new solution that leverages cloud connectivity to root out software bugs after device deployment. Computer scientist Edsger Dijkstra once said, “Program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence”. Despite developers testing their software as much as possible, they just can’t prove that bugs don’t exist in the system.
The Tech XLR8 show explains how industry makes vision a reality
The industrial world is undergoing a technology revolution, as Steve Rogerson found out at the Tech XLR8 show, part of the London Tech Week, at Excel. Automation has been part of the industrial world for decades, but the transformation that the Industrial IoT (IIoT) can and is bringing to factories is like nothing the industry has ever seen before.
The changing landscape of the display industry
The display market today is worth $120bn, primarily driven by smartphones and TVs. Over the next few years, annual display production will reach around a quarter of a million square metres, with most additional LCD capacity coming from the construction of new ‘Generation 10.5’ display fabs.
What changes are occurring in the connector market?
The interconnection market is a difficult one for designers and buyers alike. Longer delivery times, product discontinuations, higher minimum quantities and an immense variety of products and variants create uncertainty. Connectors distributor Heilind explains how it supports its customers with service and consulting offers.
Device development without sacrificing compliance
Balancing innovation and compliance is a challenge in any heavily regulated market with a large dependency on embedded software. Gerhard Kruger, Perforce Software, discusses further.
Paving the way for power management
As our world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, the demand for power will only continue to increase. Following a vibrant APEC 2019, held in California in March, Electronic Specifier Editor Joe Bush caught up with Anoop Chadaga, Product Marketing Manager, Texas Instruments, to find out what the company’s focus was at the show.
Helmut Plötz, Technology Supplier Business Manager EMEA, Arrow Electronics, looks at the key role of FPGAs. Continuing time and cost pressures mean that it is more important than ever for startups and established companies to get their ideas from concept to production in as timely and reliable a way as possible. This has led to some development platforms becoming the foundation of end products. One example is the MAX1000 FPGA IoT board,...
