In Electromechanical Displays, Part 1: The Nipkow Disk, the Nipkow disk was considered as a possible low-cost, mechanically-simple, perspicuous display like that of oscilloscopes. The Nipkow disk geometry was worked out in some detail and it is unattractive. The search for a better scheme continues in this second part.

The growth in smart homes, with some many functions and nodes connected via Wi-Fi, has raised serious concerns about security and drive-by hackers. A friend suggested, half-jokingly, that perhaps homes of the future will have a mesh layer in the walls to block RF, functioning as a Faraday cage (while RF leakages due to windows and doors might be a ...

The BMF055 is a system-in-package that integrates a triaxial 14-bit accelerometer, a triaxial 16 bit gyroscope with a range of plus or minus 2000 degrees per second, a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a 32bit Cortex M0+ microcontroller. At 5.2mm by 3.8mm by 1.1mm it is smaller than comparable discrete or system on board solutions. A software development ...

At the time, the important names in electronics - IBM, DEC, Motorola, Intel, National Semiconductor, TI, Burr-Brown - were all American.
