It’s that time of year where students return to school and to be honest, I’m still miffed at the costs associated with college
A Boost for Automotive Start-Stop: Dual Use of EMC Components
Mike Donnelly 8/30/2016 Post a comment
Automobile manufacturers are increasingly turning to start-stop systems to glean an extra 3% to 12%* of fuel economy out of conventional vehicles. With this approach, the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is turned off during idle periods, such as at traffic lights or in stop-and-go traffic, and then automatically restarted when the driver depresses the accelerator pedal
Going Full Tilt
Ian Beavers 8/16/2016 Post a comment
I would like to improve the accuracy and repeatability of tilt measurements using the ADIS16209 inclinometer. Can I use several of these sensors in parallel to improve the accuracy?
More to Microphones than MEMS

MEMS-based microphones are way ahead of traditional electromechanical microphones in unit volume; the classic designs still have their unique roles—but for how long?
Jupiter: The IC Danger Zone, Part 1
Kristen Villemez 8/10/2016 7 comments
There are many things which engineers at NASA, Space X, and at a semiconductor company like ADI must consider when developing products for use in space that anyone else wouldn’t have to worry about for earth-bound applications, most notably of which is radiation (of course unless you’re working on a nuclear power plant).

There is a plethora of devices aimed at very narrow markets. If you aren’t in that market you will never use one of those devices
The triboelectric effect is defined as a small amount of static electricity generated by the contact and movement of surfaces, used to generate energy that is collected and stored to power sensors and electronics at very low power
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.
