The Drone Dilemma, Part 2: Legal
Scott Deuty 1/26/2016 2 comments
There is no doubt that legal subjects intermix with privacy and air space. So the legal subject matter that is referred to herein will focus on drone registration and the development of laws and regulation. Other legal matters such as privacy and air space will be covered separately.

The following isolated anapot, or isopot, design is intended as a design “template” for general application wherever a manually-actuated pot is to be replaced and actuated by an analog voltage.
Build a high-voltage linear regulator
Steve Taranovich 1/12/2016 13 comments
Generating a regulated voltage from input rails exceeding 100 V is challenging. A limited selection of integrated solutions complicates the problem. Creating a discrete voltage regulator enables a low-cost solution, but the design process is involved and requires a deeper understanding of key engineering tradeoffs, with an emphasis on device thermal properties.

Google "proved" the D-Wave 2 they operate jointly with NASA (mainly paid for by Google) can operate "up to ∼ 108 times faster".
The utilization of electronics in medical applications could effectively enhance the quality of life of patients and prevent many cardiovascular distresses: this is confirmed by the result of an observational study, about the CPAP device
This blog series deals with the potential of the utilization of smart electronic ICs in medical care applications; these ICs are produced by companies in the field of semiconductors such as STMicroelectronics which has a broad portfolio of ICs for medical applications
There is rising interest in alternative energy schemes and electric vehicles (EVs) which means there is a growing need in making it possible for power to flow efficiently in both directions.
The industries sector is progressively increasing utilization of IoT technology to make the industrial processes automated in a very intelligent way.
Medical care applications with electronic devices are becoming progressively more important and massively adopted.
