Bench Talk for Design Engineers | The Official Blog of Mouser Electronics


After completing his studies in electrical engineering, Jon Gabay has worked with defense, commercial, industrial, consumer, energy, and medical companies as a design engineer, firmware coder, system designer, research scientist, and product developer. As an alternative energy researcher and inventor, he has been involved with automation technology since he founded and ran Dedicated Devices Corp. up until 2004. Since then, he has been doing research and development, writing articles, and developing technologies for next-generation engineers and students.


Moving from Smart to Brilliant Energy Jon Gabay
Making energy use more efficient on a device is common. Doing it with a distributed random needs-based environment is more difficult. Appliances that can work together to assure peak-demand load conformity will have an advantage over those that don’t.

Global Access to AI as a Force for Good Jon Gabay
Artificial intelligence conjures up science fiction and terrifying robots. In reality, AI is working for the good, outperforming humans on many levels, and marketed to companies in search of patterns in large data sets. What if it could find these patterns and prevent illnesses?

Touchless Interfaces Fight Pathogens’ Spread Jon Gabay
New touchless user interfaces can be a defense in fighting pandemics. Machine interfaces such as keypads, scanners, touch screens, and so on are a part of our societal vulnerabilities, falling short on preventing the spread of pathogens. Items such as these rarely are clean. Here’s one solution.

Extend Range, Throughput Using BAW Filters Jon Gabay
As more airwaves get filled with data, it becomes critical that the use of the spectrum is maximized. This means noise immunity from other sources, as well as adjacent bands, must assure sharp band slope edges. With 40 bands to filter expected soon, Bulk Acoustic Wave technology is the answer.

Crossing the Uncanny Valley Jon Gabay
As we technologically weave our society into a more machine-centric fabric, machines are going to take on more and more human attributes, and will look and interact with us more like humans do. A funny thing happens on the way to becoming human though. A repulsive emotion buried deep inside all of us flares up at a crossover point between clearly mechanical and clearly humanoid. This visually triggered effect has been called the “Uncanny Valley,” a term coined by professor Masahiro Mori in 1970 based on a concept from Sigmund Freud.
