McKinsey & Co predicts that the semiconductor industry will be worth $1 trillion by 2030.
How Arm Cortex-M0+ MCUs optimize general-purpose processing, sensing and control
Microcontrollers (MCUs) in embedded systems are the equivalent of air traffic control in a busy airport. MCUs sense their operating environment, take actions based on those observations, and communicate with related systems. They manage and control signals in an almost endless list of electronics, from digital thermometers to smoke detectors to heating, ventilation and air-conditioning motors.
25 years of MISRA C: making safety & security relevant for embedded developers
When software applications work well, most of them are invisible to the user. When they fail, they can be annoying. Jay Thomas, Senior Director of Field Engineering, LDRA further explores.
Meet Robotas Technologies’ Managing Director Nick Walters
A family-owned business, Robotas Technologies has been a specialist in the field of optimising the PCB assembly process for customers all over the world for the past 35 years.
Looking beyond the surface
Since their discovery in 1895, X-rays have helped us see the world in entirely new ways. Their uses stretch beyond broken bones – even helping us examine ancient Egyptian artifacts and discover the structure of human DNA.
Fuel cell versus battery trucks
By 2040, all new heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) sold in the UK must be zero-emission.
New possibilities for RF communications
Reliable access to high-speed, high-volume data communications has the potential to transform many industries and facilitate powerful new applications.
Technology will be crucial to the success of vertical farms
Vertical farming is increasingly being regarded as one of the solutions to the problems faced by global food production systems, and in the following article Antti Viitanen from Vaisala explains why measurement and control technology will be key to the success of this rapidly growing sector.
From seawater to hydrogen without the need for desalination
Researchers from the RMIT University in Australia have developed a method for making hydrogen from seawater without the need for desalination.
Going full turnkey with custom IC
It’s true that implementing an ASIC into a new, or existing, product involves multiple steps. From its initial specification and evaluation of first engineering samples, to prototype production and the final tape out, plus many more activities in between, the process may seem onerous first-time around.
