MIPI Creates the I3C Sensor Interface
Steve Taranovich 12/31/2014 13 comments
I recently spoke to Ken Foust from Intel regarding his being the chair of the MIPI Sensor Working Group and the important standards work they are doing there. I also had a conversation with Peter Lefkin, the Managing Director of the MIPI Alliance about I3C.
The Big Lie About LEDs
Scott Elder 12/22/2014 51 comments
The world has been told that LEDs are the future, in part because they are economically the right form of long-term lighting and there are environmental benefits as a great aside. Well, maybe the environmental argument is true, but the economical one is not.
Whatís Driving Interest for Supercapacitors?

Chances are youíve heard mention of supercapacitors if you havenít yet implemented them in a system design. Thatís because when components experience a 30% compound annual growth rate, it is usually driven by game-changing advantages.

One thing very gratifying over the last few years is the rise of the MAKE meme: Experimenters and hobbyists are back in fashion with our youth.
EDA Tools Should Be Free
Scott Elder 12/4/2014 5 comments
The evolution of technology is being hindered by the lack of high-end tool access. Most innovation originates from small organizations with little or no money to pursue their visions.
An AC Current Generator, Part 1

I wrote an article on this topic in 2000 that was published on Circuit Cellar Online. I believe that the basic information that I wrote about is still relevant and so I am rewriting the article as a blog.
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.
