Global semiconductor industry is gearing up for the future
The European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA) welcomes today’s agreement of the World Semiconductor Council (WSC) on its 26th joint recommendations.
RAMifications: tackling thermal engineering for DDR5
It might still be unusually difficult to get our hands on advanced semiconductor technology, but that hasn’t halted the march of progress in R&D labs across the world. The explosive demand for hardware of all kinds in the past two years has encouraged electronics engineers and designers to continue innovating despite the dearth of semiconductors worldwide. Tom Gregory, 6SigmaET Product Manager, 6SigmaET, Future Facilities discusses.
Electronic product development: a guide to help you from planning to production!
In the electronics industry, conceptualising an idea and bringing it to a viable physical system is a lengthy and exhaustive process. There are multiple steps involved in developing an electronic product starting from market research to mass production. Ken G., Sales Engineer at Technotronix discusses.
Switches play a critical part in the billion-dollar esports industry
Esports or competitive gaming has grown to a billion-dollar industry – taking computer and console games to a new level. What is little appreciated, however, is the importance of electronic components to the industry. Iker Saenz, Product Marketing Manager – Switches, Omron Electronic Components Europe discusses.
Resolving the global semiconductor shortage
According to Deloitte, we can expect the global shortage of semiconductor chips to continue as supply catches up with rising demand. Manufacturing these chips requires highly controlled manufacturing conditions where noise, vibration and dust are kept to a minimum.
Thermal behaviour of DC motors
During the continuous operation of DC motors, power losses occur to conserve energy. Ronak Samani, Technical Engineer at maxon UK and Ireland, provides an analytical explanation of the thermodynamic response and details the significance behind the thermal parameters listed in maxon DC motor datasheets.
Targeting net-zero emissions for chip manufacturing
At Future Summits 2022, imec announces that its Sustainable Semiconductor Technologies and Systems (SSTS) research programme succeeded in bringing together stakeholders of the semiconductor value chain, from large system companies such as Apple and Microsoft, to suppliers, including ASM, Kurita, SCREEN and Tokyo Electron.
Helping electric vehicles keep their cool
Packing enough energy into a battery to power a car is putting a lot of pressure on the storage devices that, for the last century or so, have mainly been tasked with running small appliances and electronics.
Latest server processors get embedded support
IT/OT convergence at the edge needs customised server solutions with scalable performance to match individual requirements. Developing such solutions requires embedded support for key hardware components.
Joint process development presentation at SMTconnect
Indium Corporation expert Andreas Karch, Regional Technical Manager and Technologist – advanced applications, and Ralf Sedlatschek, Head of Technology, KATEK Group, will co-present their joint process development on a materials solution to prevent hotspots in thermally-critical components at SMTconnect, May 10, 11:40 a.m.-Noon, Nuremberg, Germany.
