Diagram generation tools modernize automotive electrical design Design How-To 10/28/2010 Post a comment Automated wiring and component diagram generation decreases design engineers "drafting" tasks, while synchronizing and updating process documentation for increased productivity. Automation brings consistency and standardization, while modern tools permit customization for proprietary purposes.
Putting an audiophile "tweak" to the test Audio DesignLine Blog 10/27/2010 15 comments A longstanding audiophile product - a "quantum/superconducting"-based device that claims to achieve previously unnattainable "levels of signal purity and transparency" - undergoes some objective tests by some skeptical audio DIYers.
ARM TechCon Teardown Smackdown: Dell Streak vs. The Archos 7 Blog 10/26/2010 11 comments The promo for this ARM TechCon event is actually a bit misleading: “Which tablet PC will come out on top? Watch as EE Times Editors Brian Fuller and Patrick Mannion dissect the inner workings of the devices and explore which is the strongest contender, based on speed, power consumption, display, features and functionality.”
Chevy Volt flap: What's the big deal? Automotive DesignLine Blog 10/18/2010 41 comments Some fans of electric cars and hybrids, and a few folks in the press, are getting all in a knot about Chevy actually having a "direct link" from the gas engine to the wheels in its Volt "range-assisted" electric car. Well maybe its just good engineering.
Gore’s new RG coaxial cables Product News 10/6/2010 Post a comment Compared to standard RG coaxial cables, W. L. Gore & Associates’ new cables are 20 percent lighter with a 15 percent smaller diameter, but still meet the stringent electrical and mechanical requirements of MIL-T-81790 and EN 3475-503.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
