Ferroelectrics may lead to new memory

12 May, 2011

The properties of ferroelectric materials are moving scientists closer to realising a new way of electronic memory storage.


Digital prototyping in mechatronic design

07 June, 2010

Today’s manufacturers are using a mechatronics-based approach to integrate the electronic, mechanical and software components of their increasingly complex products. Digital prototyping allows disparate engineering teams to work from a single digital model, saving time and reducing errors throughout the design process.


MEMS inside a CMOS wafer

05 May, 2010

Baolab Microsystems has developed a technology to construct nanoscale MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) within the structure of the actual CMOS wafer itself using standard, high-volume CMOS lines, which is much easier and quicker with fewer process steps than existing MEMS fabrication techniques that build the MEMS on the surface of the wafer.


Designing mini x86 devices efficiently

02 December, 2009

With Pico-ITX, small form factor (SFF) designers can gain from a standard solution, with which they can develop the smallest embedded devices fast and without having to make user-specific adaptations. There are, however, alternatives.


Navigating the design process

02 December, 2009 by LX Innovations

This article by LX Innovations outlines the process of electronics design and points out some of the various common pitfalls that can be encountered and ways they can be avoided.
