Thermal management — the key to extending device lifetime

Supplied by Electrolube on 02 June, 2016

Electronic components often generate significant amounts of heat while in use. Failure to effectively dissipate this heat away from the device can lead to reliability concerns and reduce operational lifetimes.


How to cut your wireless and EMI/EMC compliance costs

Supplied by Vicom Australia Pty Ltd on 25 May, 2016

Failing verification or qualification of wireless technologies within a new product design increases developmental costs and delays the product release. Similarly, an EMI compliance test is expensive and also puts the product schedule at risk.


Make your power system 10 times lighter and smaller

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 02 May, 2016

Selecting the right power architecture for your system is critical to significantly reduce its size and weight. Factorised Power Architecture (FPA) is an interesting approach that can result in power systems that are 8 to 10 times lighter and smaller than conventional solutions.


Extend your LED’s lifetime and boost efficiency

Supplied by Electrolube on 21 March, 2016

Specialised chemical products for LED application now enhance device quality and performance. LED systems can be protected from a variety of damaging conditions, such as corrosive environments, and show significant increases in efficiency and reductions in energy consumption.


How to maximise the battery life on your IoT device

Supplied by Vicom Australia Pty Ltd on 08 March, 2016

IoT device battery life can range from a couple of days to 30 years. To reduce energy consumption and optimise battery life you need to accurately determine the power consumption of each device component, as well as overall operation on a system level.


New multifunctional connectors with extreme safety requirements

Supplied by SCHURTER (S) PTE LTD on 02 February, 2016

This series of expert guidelines examines all facets of wireless communication and demonstrates the steps necessary to protect and strengthen your LMR system.


Build high-performance power systems quickly and easily

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 01 February, 2016

A new line of AC-DC front-end components allows the Power Component Design Methodology to be used from AC to the point of load. This now enables engineers to construct efficient and adaptable power systems with a building blocks approach.


7 ways to shrink your power system

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 08 October, 2015

A common challenge in the creation of an electronic power system is developing a power chain that takes up less space, allowing more room for other parts of the system. Engineers can use a combination of several techniques to achieve this outcome.


Investigation into isolated failure mechanisms

Supplied by Semikron on 04 August, 2015

Considerable efforts have been made to predict the operational lifetime of classical IGBT power modules over the last few decades. Most of these investigations were based on end-of-life active power cycling tests. The analysis identified two dominant failure modes: solder fatigue and Al wire bond failure. However, the lifetime models derived from these accelerated tests could not discriminate between these failure modes. Recently, more reliable interconnection technologies were developed, and both failure modes can now be studied independently.


Planning a scalable long-term wireless strategy

Supplied by M2M Connectivity on 03 July, 2015

Operators in many markets are transitioning to 3G and 4G technologies, whilst other operators have preferred to invest in maintaining and upgrading 2G networks for the foreseeable future. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each technology is paramount, amongst considerations of hardware and software to suit, in planning to scale from 2G to 3G to 4G LTE.


New highly efficient bidirectional DC-DC converter for DC-BUS and battery bank interface

Supplied by Vicor Corporation on 01 July, 2015

With the growth in use of renewable sources of power, the energy storage systems (ESS) market, particularly battery systems, is set to soar. ESS designers are selecting batteries to replace traditional mechanical means of energy storage such as hydro pumps.


16-bit oscilloscopes can fulfil demand for high detail

Supplied by Rohde & Schwarz on 30 June, 2015

The vertical resolution of an oscilloscope determines how accurately signals are displayed. Industries including consumer goods, medicines and R&D are increasingly demanding high vertical definition devices.


A guide book for designers of flexible circuits

Supplied by Altium on 16 April, 2015

Flex and rigid-flex PCBs have a wide range of applications - from military weaponry and aerospace systems to mobile phones and digital cameras. Their use in medical equipment is constantly increasing due to their improved reliability.


SiC in power electronics

Supplied by Semikron on 22 September, 2014

The total market of SiC power devices is predicted to rise to more than US$1 billion by 2021.


New generation LCD resizing technology

Supplied by Advantech Australia Pty Ltd on 29 April, 2014

Large-sized LCD displays have limitations – poor aspect ratio, high power consumption and low resolution. A technological breakthrough has enabled high quality visual resizing opening up new display opportunities.
