The hidden role of embedded computing in rail
A few years ago, a guilt-ridden Melbourne train commuter’s note warning other travellers not to sit in their spilled coffee puddle made the international news. Actually, 'the spilled coffee effect' is nothing new in the rail industry, referring to bumps and jolts that cause passenger discomfort. Here, Mark Jeffrey, Technical Director at Recab UK, explains how its embedded computing and PCBs help passengers ride comfortably and safely, ...

How to select the right demo board
There are thousands and thousands of demo boards, development platforms and reference designs that you can select from when starting your next electronic design. Choosing the right one will make all the difference in development time, effort required and path to success. Designers need to keep six key criteria in mind for board selection, but it will be up to you to decide how important each of them are relative to each other. By David Sand...
