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 today's podcast we talk to Arlon Martin, VP of Marketing, Government Contracts & Industry Relations at Kotura, specialists in silicon photonics.
Any new innovation experiences obstacles. In LED lighting, one problem is the issue of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), or unwanted noise signals.
In this video, Jeri shows how to build a digital direct conversion receiver (Software Radio) using sampling detectors and FPGA DSP processing
The SAM9 ARM926-based family of microcontrollers (MCUs) from Atmel target applications in smart device, human machine interface, and machine-to-machine market segments.
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.
With ever increasing demand for high-definition content consumption and distribution within the home, the consumer needs a highly reliable home network.
In this episode we talk to Brian Glinsman from Texas Instruments about metro, pico and enterprise small cell base stations.
Cymbet Corporation today announced that their EnerChip solid state battery energy harvesting evaluation kits now support the popular Texas Instruments MSP430 Value Line LaunchPad development kit.
I must admit I am still surprised when I see technical people dismiss art as useless. Art is not only a pleasant aesthetic; it is often essential to design.

STMicroelectronics announced the availability of the Mentor® Embedded Inflexion™ User Interface (UI) software product on the SPEAr (Structured Processor Enhanced Architecture) family of processors, which are based on ARM® core technology.
The Better Use of Light Bulbs Act (BULB) has been defeated in the House of Representatives. BULB would have amended the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, thereby staying the incandescent ban. But it was not to be. With no further challenges, the Edison Lightbulb faces mandatory retirement in January 2012.
IAR Systems announced a complete starter kit for NXP’s ARM Cortex-M3 based LPC1780 microcontroller family.
Video is one of the most dynamic and effective ways to communicate to your customers and potential customers. Many tech savvy customers expect to see video and if your site does not provide video, they feel that something is missing.
In this episode we talk to Bill Driver of LeCroy about test and measurement in general and their high-bandwidth WaveMaster 8 Zi-A oscilloscope in particular.
