Liquid-based cooling of electronics is rarely the preferred solution to thermal management, but it may be the only one; improvements in the underlying components may make it a more-palatable option.
A Time of Giving Thanks

It is imperative to understand how a device or system will respond when subjected to radiation so that its operation in the harsh, radiation-rich environment of space can be predicted.
LED controllers and switches improve Matrix Lighting

Modern automotive matrix lighting often utilizes strings and matrices of LEDs, requiring an increasing number of integrated circuits to control them. New designs must usually pack more electronics in the same or a smaller space.
MEMS, MITRE, and DARPA

I was pleasantly surprised that the two most powerful presentations, at MSEC 2018, that will greatly benefit the MEMS industry, were from US Federal Government-funded agencies.
Digital Isolation solutions
Aubrey Kagan 11/2/2018 1 comment
Digital isolation can solve ground loop issues, cater for level shifting, separate dangerous voltages and provide surge isolation. There is a myriad of ways of achieving digital isolation depending on your application and budget. The technology used can be optical, magnetic or capacitive coupling and sometimes a combination.
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.
