I felt intimidated yet confident as I entered the Javits Center in New York. Hundreds of men and women in business attire strolled by as if I didn’t exist. But as I listened to snippets of conversation about the latest electronic and medical technologies, I realized I was exactly where I wanted to be.
In June I mentioned a promising new sensor technology that can be used for non-invasive measurement of muscle movements with potential applications in patent monitoring (ECG, EMG, to name a few). The technology comes from
More than 14 years ago, the IEEE adopted the first WLAN standard, which would go on to serve as the foundation for all further developments in creating today’s Wi-Fi networks. Today, August 2, 2011 is the perfect day to consider the importance and growing uses for connectivity.
You have heard this one for years no doubt, but it has made a recent splash in the popular press. Walter Russel Mead is taking a quick look at Moore's Law and thinks that it may be running out of gas. He quotes The New York Times...
Fuel cells were originally considered to be replacements for internal combustion engines used in traditional vehicles and replacements for traction batteries used in pure electric vehicles.
Energy Microsystems shows how to scale low power applications without having to re-design your layout when using 32-bit Cortex-M3 EFM32 microcontrollers.

In early 2008, I asked my Merrill Lynch broker for a list of stocks of American robot manufacturers. He couldn't provide me with more than two. So I went online with Bloomberg and found a list of 120 companies involved with automation.
Imagine going from looking at the outside of a building, to seeing the internal workings of its electrical system simply by walking around a display case. The sophistication of 3-D holographic technology allows just that.
In this episode we talk to Adrian Woolley, marketing director for microcontrollers for Atmel, on their Sensors Xplained software drivers announcement.
Virginia Tech recently was named the overall winner of EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge, a three-year collegiate vehicle engineering competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and General Motors (GM).
Currently most college students learn core development skills by working on individual projects. But when those students eventually go to work for a larger software company, they will inevitably be part of a team of programmers, working on one small slice of a much bigger pie.
