This week, America celebrates 230 years as a country; next year EE Times will celebrate 35 years as a news and information enterprise. We're not the same animal we were. I don't think we could be, even if we wanted to. Today we cover technology, design and product developments globally, and our dispatches flow to every corner of the design-engineering world in more than a half-dozen languages.
Gaining freedom Industrial Control DesignLine Blog 7/3/2006 Post a comment In one way or another, much of the activity in industrial control involves standardization. Ethernet is taking over, wireless networking standards are slowly inching forward and a host of specifications from the ISA, OPC and others are also gaining steam.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
