New Tech Tuesdays: Sensor-Rich Expansion Board Brings Science Closer to Daily Life Tommy Cummings
DFRobot's Environment Science Expansion Board V2.0 is the Swiss army knife of expansion boards. It's micro:bit-based, and allows users to measure environmental conditions for scientific experiments or projects.

Can Covid-19 Really Be Fought with UV Light? John Hauschild
A hot topic for the lighting industry is the question of UV’s effectiveness against Covid-19. While initial research has been positive, it’s shown that using UV to kill Covid-19 pathogens is not as simple as turning on a light switch. We’ll explore why.

Attraction for Control: Magnetic Sensing in Building Automation Paul Golata
Today’s buildings and homes are equipped with intelligent technologies for safer, more convenient, and energy-efficient living. Learn why Littelfuse magnetic sensors are an attractive choice for control in building automation.

New Tech Tuesdays: Smart Building Technology Keeps Evolving Tommy Cummings
Just like a smart home, today's automated buildings rely on Internet of Things devices and connectivity to create a networked environment that delivers safety, efficiency, productivity, profitability, and other benefits from situational awareness.

Distributed Analytics Beyond the Cloud Charles Byers
Analytics, AI, and ML are typically implemented as centralized functions in networks, often residing in the cloud. There is a growing trend to distribute these learning and inference functions between cloud, edge, and endpoint computer capabilities. Here, we’ll look at some of the tradeoffs involved.

Sourcing Hi-Rel Connectors for Portable Medical Designs Wendy Preston
More patients are receiving healthcare outside of the clinical environment. This shift means that design engineers need to specify connector components with attributes and durability better suited for portable equipment.

New Tech Tuesdays: Military-Aerospace Solutions to Keep Designers Busy Tommy Cummings
Design engineers have plenty of development opportunities in the military and aerospace electronics sectors. This is despite these industries experiencing bumpy rides resulting from the economic impact of the pandemic.

Faster EV Charging with SiC Marcel Consée
Electromobility has challenges to overcome. Global environmental issues such as battery production, recycling, and power generation intertwine with individual and practical aspects. Learn how state-of-the-art semiconductor technology helps to solve at least some of the problems.

Looking at the Future of Imaging Systems Clive  Maxfield
As futuristic as machine-vision systems are, they suffer from the same problems as the human eye. Let’s explore challenges associated with conventional imaging systems and a solution for future imaging applications such as people tracking, volumetric measurement, robotics, and more.
