Designing and manufacturing PCBs is a complex process that involves many steps and considerations. This is the first article in a three-part series on designing PCB. This article details the types of PCBs and explains why it's important for designers to understand manufacturers' capability statements.
Researchers have discovered a new type of photonic channels, where back and forth are not equal distances. Such a system has been a missing component for building quantum photonic circuits on a large scale.
DIN rail power supplies play a central role in industrial plants but often attract little attention, despite the fact that power supply failures can bring production to a halt, causing huge costs.
Korean researchers have developed a microelectronics-compatible method to grow 4″ diameter, high-quality, multilayer graphene on desired silicon substrates.
NI LabVIEW is a development environment optimised for engineers and scientists creating test, measurement and control applications.
With MATLAB Release 2015a, enhancements to signal processing and wireless communications products make it easy to analyse signals. Users can perform antenna-to-bits simulation, over-the-air testing and smart RF design, as well as develop real-time DSP algorithms for streaming audio devices and smart sensors.
The material used in a connector design significantly impacts its overall performance. Bob Stanton, technology director at Omnetics Connector Corp, takes a look at how insulator materials affect connectors at work.
RECOM's DIN rail power supply, the REDIN series with 45 and 60 W power, is available with standard output voltages of 12 and 24 VDC, adjustable by a front cover potentiometer.
Analog Devices has launched the ADALM1000, a learning ecosystem for mixed-signal circuit designs. The product is suitable for teachers, students, electronic design engineers, hobbyists and makers that can benefit from a portable source measure unit that works by streaming to a desktop computer or laptop.
University of Illinois researchers have developed heat-triggered self-destructing electronic devices, a step towards greatly reducing electronic waste and boosting sustainability in device manufacturing.
Canberra start-up Reposit Power has locked in a contract that will see Tesla batteries sold with Reposit's technology installed in them.
