To get a handle on ethical AI, we must first secure the Edge
With the advancement of technology, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has started to become a tangible part of our everyday lives, assisting us with transportation, healthcare, protecting the environment and even helping us at home. In the coming decades, AI applications will go much further. Guest blog written by Lars Reger, NXP Semiconductors
Times they are a changing
Just after the turn of the 20th century, Charles Holland Duell, Commissioner of the United States Patent Office, opined: “All previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold.”
The evolution of USB Type C in power-only applications
Since their inception over two decades ago, USB connectors and their associated standards have gone through an array of advancements to both their data transfer rates and power capabilities as well as multiple iterations of the physical connector itself. Introduced in 2014, USB Type C is the latest physical standard, well-recognised for its simplified, bi-directional package, higher data rates, and greater power delivery. By Jeff Smoot, CUI Devi...

How GPS tech is bringing atomic timing to industrial applications
How on earth, you might wonder, can GPS receivers use weak electromagnetic signals emitted from distant satellites to determine its position to within just a few meters (or even centimeters)? To a large extent, it’s because they are excellent timing devices that determine their position based on the time it takes for the satellite signals to reach them from orbit.
