I can recall an instance when a customer walked into my office with his processor board that he said was consuming too much power and draining the battery—and since we proudly claimed that processor to be an ultra-low power one, the onus was on us to prove it.

Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEye’s LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
In the not too distant past, if you were seen holding a conversation with a household appliance, you might have run the risk of being committed.
The voltage regulator is a very important part of the power management and the placement of voltage regulator plays an important role in improving the performance.
