Fab Labs Are Great Resources for Prototyping Sal Amarasinghe
Fab labs offer a way for engineers to quickly begin building prototypes. They provide reliable access to equipment and workspace at a reasonable cost with the added benefit of access to a community of engineering-minded people. The key is finding one that fits your project needs.

How Shawn Mendes and RFID Asset Tracking Technology Steal the Show Paul Golata
It’s no wonder that throngs of screaming fans attend singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes’ shows. Through the use of RFID products, Mendes transforms his events into an interactive experience with his fans. Learn how Molex enables customers to never miss a beat by employing RFID tracking technology.

Why SiC Devices Are Ideal for Level 3 EV Charging Applications Robert Huntley
Charging an EV can be a lengthy process, however, Level 3 “fast” DC charging techniques promise much faster charging capabilities that reduce charging times to minutes instead of hours. This efficiency relies on high-speed power conversion, for which new wide-bandgap technologies are well suited.

If You Build It, Will They Come? David Talbott
The essential hardware innovation question of “If you build it, will customers buy it?” keeps every maker, innovator, and founder of a startup awake at night. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to answer that question before investing a significant amount of time and money in a new idea.

Achieving a Single Higher Voltage from a Dual-Output DC/DC Converter Robert Huntley
As applications use more sophisticated devices, the demand for more complex supply voltages increases. One viable approach to meeting the requirement for a higher voltage rail includes the use of a dual-output DC/DC converter. This blog explains how to integrate this type of converter into your designs.

IoT: Past, Present, and Future M. Tim Jones
IoT forced a sea change in computing and network architectures. This was due to a variety of factors including quantities of end-devices, processing needs of those devices, and the need to instantly map changes in the device's environment to decisions. Explore IoT and how it's evolving.

Selecting a No-Opto Flyback DC/DC Converter for Space-Constrained Designs Robert Huntley
Traditionally, isolated DC/DC flyback converters used an optocoupler or a third transformer winding for line regulation. This led to design complexity, increased cost, and the need for more PCB space. Simplify your design with a no-opto flyback converter IC to regain PCB space and lower your BOM cost.

Robots to Take Over Manhole Cleaning Adil Abdul Kareem
In a promising example of how robots are replacing manual labor in unsafe places, a startup has built a state-of-the art machine that cleans drains efficiently.

Object Size Detection with the OpenVINO™ Toolkit M. Tim Jones
Explore how you can use the Intel® OpenVINO™ toolkit to automatically identify and classify defective objects on a conveyor belt.

Restricted Zone Monitoring with the OpenVINO™ Toolkit M. Tim Jones
With the number of security cameras deployed, how do you constantly monitor each camera? This problem can be solved using deep learning. Explore how you can use the Intel® OpenVINO™ toolkit to automatically identify when a person enters a restricted area.
