IoT: Preparing our future workforce
Data scientists have often been compared to the heart and soul of the running of IoT projects. As the gatekeeper to every organisations capability to make more informed decisions with their data, these individuals are considered vital for successful projects. By Anthony Sayers, IoT Evangelist at Software AG
Equipping an efficient electrical workbench
Having the right range tools and equipment available on an electrical workbench is essential in order to achieve the desired levels of quality and productivity. Compromising on the number, type or quality of tools is, quite simply, a false economy, regardless of whether the application is assembly, test or repair. By Grzegorz Gorzka, Mechanical Elements Product Engineer at TME
Improve embedded system development with simulation
Many organisations rely on traditional embedded system development processes. These processes work fine – but ultimately prevents the organisation from advancing further. Relying on physical labs for testing and development holds back innovation and slows things down. Guest blog written by Sean Evoy, Wind River.
Smartphones and the circular economy
What do you do with your old smartphone when you no longer need it? Chances are, you keep it. According to a survey conducted by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 45% of UK households have two to five unused electronic devices at home. Neil Ballinger, Head of EMEA Sales at EU Automation, discusses smartphones and the circular economy.
Exploring the DNA of an electronics distributor

A closer look at IP ratings and designing with IP rated connectors
If you have owned a portable device, then you have likely subjected it to unwanted dirt or a drop into liquid. From tablets and wearables to outdoor sensors and industrial equipment, the demand for devices that can withstand these host of environmental factors continues to grow. By Ryan Smoot, CUI Devices
Embedded systems design process: how traditional methods hold you back
Embedded system software development and testing are often constrained by the availability of target hardware and related systemic elements like peripherals. This limitation, long viewed as an immutable rule of product development, slows down embedded systems businesses. Slow time to market; high capital and operating expenses (CapEx and OpEx); and suboptimal quality management leave customers unhappy. Plus, current methods only allow f...
The business case for embedded system simulation
When embedded system software development and testing are constrained by the availability of target hardware and systems, the entire business faces problems. Guest blog written by Sean Evoy, Wind River.
Decisions at the speed of light: how AIoT will allow 5G to take flight
5G marks the start of a technology revolution. By making high speed connectivity ubiquitous, it will accelerate technology adoption across the country and transform how we work, play and innovate. However, 5G will also create unprecedented complexity for network operators and service providers. By Jennifer Major, Head of IoT, SAS UK & Ireland
Are UAVs properly tested, or is development rushed?
The market for unmanned aerial vehicles, or simply UAVs, is booming. But with high demand follows the risk of rushed development. A good example is Beyond Line of Sight operations that have opened new possibilities but also implied new risks of both loss of connection, data or even the UAV itself.
