Plastic memory firm signs partners for printed systems Research 1/24/2012 5 comments Thin Film Electronics ASA (Oslo, Norway), a developer of ferroelectric polarization polymer memory, has joined forces with a number of partners to develop a low-cost printed electronic sensor platform that could be used to monitor the temperature of perishable goods such as food and pharmaceuticals.
Power electronics for smart energy require innovative packaging technology Design How-To 1/17/2012 1 comment Power electronics is becoming increasingly important when it comes to Smart Energy markets such as regenerative energy, e-mobility and energy saving. In order to tap into these markets, innovations in packaging technology are needed in five areas: Solder joints, module base plates, module layout, chip temperatures, and current densities.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
