Moderated by Alix Paultre, Editorial Director, the Roundtable is where industry players talk about market, technology, and industry trends. This month's question is: What functionality and/or features will drive the next generation of test & measurement products? What will be the most radical emphasis? Lower cost, better accuracy, robustness, speed, the ability to function in hazardous environments? What are you looking for in your next test device? This month we have answers from people at Honeywell, Mike Schnecker, Business Development Manager, Rohde & Schwarz Brian Duffy, Applications Engineering Manager, Test and Measurement Products, Honeywell Sensing & Control Torque sensors.
By Olga Yashkova, Program Manager, Communications Test & Measurement practice, Frost & Sullivan LTE and MIMO: A Marriage Made in Heaven? Smart devices are changing the mix of traffic on the network from mostly voice to integrated voice, video and data, which drive new demands in test products.
By Hayne Shumate, Mouser Electronics Vice President of Internet Business At Mouser Electronics, we burn a lot of brain cells discovering better ways to get design engineers the information and products they need faster and easier than before. This is particularly difficult when the engineer has not yet selected a component.
The proliferation of cost-effective wireless technology has led to the rise of entirely new types of networks across a wide range of applications including security, home and building automation, smart meters and personal medical devices.
Hosted by Alix Paultre, the Tinker's Toolbox is the Advantage Design Group's web-based interview show where we talk about the latest technology, components, and design issues for the electronic design engineering community. In today's podcast we talk to Alfamation CEO Mauro Arigossi about testing the latest devices and test products and solutions for the automotive, consumer electronics, telecom and medical industries.
by Helena Leite, CEO, CardMobili Some of the most successful mobile applications are inherently the simplest from the users’ perspective – providing something that genuinely changes the way we do things. Mobile apps can make life easier, more fun, or provide a new way of saving money. Mobile relationship marketing is a growing sector, with merchants recognizing the power of communicating to consumers via mobile devices.
In-Taxi dispatch control systems have traditionally consisted of mobile data units, which exchange dispatch information with the central office using Public Mobile Radio (PMR). Although GPRS can be used as an alternative communication solution, PMR remains the preferred solution as it offers more reliability in a localised area, and is more cost effective for medium and large scale fleets.
Hosted by Alix Paultre, the Tinker's Toolbox is the Advantage Design Group's web-based interview show where we talk about the latest technology, components, and design issues for the electronic design engineering community. In today's podcast we talk to Jeff Smoot, VP of Engineering and Quality at CUI about DC/DC power at the board level, the challenges to the engineer, and what CUI is doing to address them.
( University of Queensland, Australia ) - UQ undergraduate Sean Murphy has experienced first-hand how exciting scientific discoveries are often made by accident. Mr Murphy helped discover what is now known as the “Flashed Face Distortion Effect” while working alone in a lab on a set of facial images for a different experiment.
Both network operators and infrastructure vendors need to test LTE networks under realistic conditions of subscriber demand. The advent of LTE introduces a number of new challenges for capacity testing and requires different techniques and expertise from those used for 3G networks.
Hosted by Alix Paultre, the Tinker's Toolbox is the Advantage Design Group's web-based interview show where we talk about the latest technology, components, and design issues for the electronic design engineering community. In today's podcast we talk to Taoglas Director Dermot O'Shea about wireless systems like LTE and WiMax, and the required antenna infrastructures.
The world will be a little less interesting with Steve Jobs gone. He was one of the people who had truly changed the world, how we percieve it, and how we live in it. He and Steve Wozniak literally invented true personal computing in that famous garage in California. Steve Jobs had a vision and Apple followed it, creating a device that was intended and designed to be an information tool, a way to not only do old things in a new way but also do completely new things.
by Ed Sullivan Why you should look “behind the numbers” when choosing a digitizer card for wireless communications applications With wireless communications proliferating as never before, several parameters are important in the selection of a digitizer for acquiring and accurately measuring signals used for the design and testing of wireless equipment.
There were high expectations for today’s launch of the latest iPhone, with the new look iPhone 5 being the nomenclature of choice. However, there was a little disappointment in the air as, in actuality, Apple revealed a warmed up version of last year’s iPhone following 15 months without any hardware upgrade.
At the forthcoming IDTechEx conference; Printed Electronics USA in Santa Clara, on November 30-December 1, 2011, there will be a focus on technologies such as OLEDs and electrophoretic displays, with leading innovators such as Sumitomo, Panasonic and E Ink discussing their progress. But there are other display technologies emerging, at earlier stages of commercialization that promise performance enhancement, cost reduction and new possibilities.
