Wireless Tech Helps Protect Healthcare Budgets Steven Keeping
An aging population is increasingly suffering from chronic diseases, and frequent hospitalization puts an additional load on stressed healthcare budgets. However, wireless technology is enabling good symptom management, keeping seniors safe at home and protecting budget concerns.

Nano, Nano: Shrinking Power Consumption Down in Analog Power Design Paul Golata
Using their analog expertise, ROHM Semiconductor has developed a new product line, the Nano Series, to achieve more compact parts that require less energy to operate.

Augmenting Intelligence: Enabling Neural Networks Paul Golata
Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are a connected system of nodes that transmit nerve impulses, much like human neurons do. ANNs have made significant inroads, helping technologists develop new solutions in machine vision, human speech recognition, and medical diagnostics.

Exoskeletons Present Mobility Solutions Using an Array of Sensors Steve Schriber
Powered exoskeletons augment or deliver motion capabilities using motors, sensors, actuators, power sources, and control units. Kinetic sensors such as gyroscopes, tilt sensors, inertial sensors, and accelerometers provide necessary feedback to help an exoskeleton stay balanced and on course.

Ensuring the Electrical Safety of Powered Exoskeletons Alex Misiti
Exoskeleton use in improving the mobility of patients with spinal cord injuries, helping industrial workers lift heavy objects, and enhancing soldiers’ abilities on the battlefield are obvious benefits, but designers and engineers must remove safety risks to ensure the health and well-being of users.

A Smart Collar That Gives Pets a Voice Traci Browne
If my dog could talk, I’m pretty sure he’d go on and on about food and the chipmunks in the backyard. But, what if he could also let me know when he wasn’t feeling well? Believe it or not, smart collar devices are doing just that by giving our pets a voice.

New Touch Encoder Technology Makes User Experience More Intuitive Grayhill, Inc.
Industrial designers are always looking for ways to improve user interface controls by combining functionalities of rotary switches, pushbuttons, trackballs, potentiometers, and touchscreens. In doing so, they can save on component costs and streamline the user experience. Now, Touch Encoder technology is available that helps modernize and simplify designs, while also making it much easier to support applications with multiple languages or configurations.

Insights From Sensors Expo 2018 John Koon
Sensors Expo 2018 was full of insights from keynote speakers and cutting-edge products and technologies from top-notch manufacturers like Maxim Integrated, Microchip, STMicroelectronics, and Bosch. Read on to see what the buzz is all about!

K-SIM Improves Capacitor Datasheets and Simulates Multiple Parameters KEMET Electronics
Capacitor datasheets are notorious for omitting performance details, typically only including individual performance parameters in each graph or only including "typical" performance of combined parameters. KEMET’s capacitor parameter simulator, called K-SIM, solves this problem by combining multiple parameters into a single graph.

Which Hardware in the Loop (HITL) Scenario Works for You? Bill Schweber
Hardware in the Loop (HITL) is the only practical way to test complex system hardware and software, and two ways of implementing it exist. Each approach has pros and cons, but in either case, developing the HITL installation can be a task as large as developing the system itself.
