At a friend's house last night, I caught the end of a programme called 'Embarrassing Bodies' and decided there were some things I would rather not see in HD!
Catching the MEMS bug

Rules are there to be broken, so they say, and I have already broken mine by including a product story in my news section. I'll explain ... ST has just launched two new accelerometers for mobile phones, designed to enable applications like personal navigation, freefall detection, smart user interfaces and intelligent motion-based power management. ST and MEMS is nothing new " indeed, it is precisely its long-term involvement in MEMS research that is paying off right now ...
SPICE and all things nice ...

I have just been updating myself on the current state of play in the analog EDA world. One consideration struck me " just what made SPICE so enduring and successful?

There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
As a member of the electronics design community, I am angry and disappointed with the recent deaths of 346 people due to the Boeing MAX 8 design
The theoretical advantages of GaN-based power transistors are now being realized in mainstream system designs. Power supplies for data centers and telecom switching racks are two application areas where GaN transistors show significant improvement in comparison to systems using best-in-class Silicon-based Superjunction devices.
