Recently I read the April 2011 edition of the Deutsche Bank newsletter Signals to Investors that covered testing of cellular data speeds in various parts of the US
When a manufacturer launches a new product or enters a new market, it often finds itself between a rock and a hard place, production-wise. On one hand, it must keep manufacturing costs as low as possible upfront, since market demand can be uncertain and volatile...
Voltage dividers that divide by 10, or 100, or 1,000 are tough with standard resistors. The numbers do not come out exactly with standard resistors. By adding one resistor to the divider it is possible to get the division ratio exact (not counting resistor tolerances).
Microchip Technology and Digilent launched the first 32-bit-microcontroller-based, open-source development platform that is compatible with Arduino hardware and software.
In my role as the CEO of a global technology company, I’m often asked to reveal the secret to market growth. When I think of what drives our brand and our interaction with customers two words come to mind: collaborative innovation.

If you’re part of a medium to large IT organization, it’s likely that you’re spending an increasing percentage of your application budget just to keep the lights on.
Throughout my experiences, I have developed a passion for really cool electronic gadgets and the power inside that keeps the world in touch and up to date.
Texas Instruments announced what it asserts are the industry’s first ultra-low-power ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) 16-bit microcontrollers. The MSP430FR57xx FRAM Series ensures data can be
Until recently nanotechnology has been little more than a buzzword for many, with the major announcements in the space being mostly about using nanoparticle technology in traditional materials applications. But new technology and capabilities are moving nanotech from the realm of science fiction into the realm of the real for application areas previously unthought-of.
Microchip Technology Inc. announced it has expanded its low pin-count 16-bit eXtreme Low Power PIC MCUs by adding an on-chip 12-bit ADC, EEPROM, intelligent mTouch capacitive sensing, and the capability to
2011 marks Wind River’s 30th anniversary. The big 3-0…it’s a major landmark moment in anyone’s book. This year, we’ll be taking time to honor this milestone with a retrospective of Wind River’s history and also a series of employee stories.
In this episode, we talk with Shaf Rahman of Akros about their new family of DC-DC Controllers with gate-drive signal shaping for reduced EMI and improved efficiency.
