There’s been a lot of chatter in the news (and here on ECN) about drones. These arguments usually come down to questions about ethics, military power and tangentially the military industrial complex, and the relationship of the US with various other countries. It’s rare to see drones talked about in any context outside of military.
Today on Engineering Newswire, we're talking to virtual heads, firing sexists in Silicon Valley, investigating a super-sized power outage, and fishing far flung space garbage from the bottom of the ocean. This episode features....
Improvements to the graphical viewer and significantly faster performance are among the enhancements to ASSET InterTech’s ScanWorks IJTAG Test tool, with which engineers are able to access, control and automate the operations of test and measurement instruments embedded in chips.
Five months have passed since Superstorm Sandy, and legislators are nipping around the edges of bolstering the fuel distribution system so more gas can get to the consumer in the case of a widespread power outage or other state of emergency.
The new generation of the Mini Topled and Topled LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors produce a uniquely pleasant white light in varying tones that is ideal for the interior illumination of buses, trains, airplanes and cars. The successful standard packages for these LEDs have been retained....
Pulse Electronics Corporation expands its range of round-wire coil (RWC) surface mount power inductors to deliver higher inductance/current capability. Mechanical sizes from 7.6 x 7.4 x 6.4mm up to 21.7 x 21.5 x 12.5mm are now available with an inductance range from 0.3uH to 50uH and with a current rating up to 70A.
Most economists agree that the “Great Recession” of 2008 ended sometime around August 2009, and while the economy has been slowly recovering, unemployment still appears to be a stubborn problem. The headline rate is just a shade under 8 percent, which translates into a little over 12 million Americans out of work.
When to choose a contract assembly source in North America five to seven years ago, the push to off-shore contract assembly was at its peak and with good reason. US demand was up, and volumes were increasing. US labor and raw material costs had risen dramatically. Cheap knock-offs from Chinese companies were flooding the market.
Crystek’s CVCO55CXT-5685-5780 Coaxial Resonator Oscillator (CRO) is a coaxial-based VCO with an internal proprietary frequency doubler. The family’s frequency doubling, 2X fundamental technology is asserted to reach new performance levels of

In this episode of Engineering Update, brought to you by Mouser Electronics www.mouser.com, we're talking about self-healing, laser resistant chips, New York City's new interactive, touchscreen subway maps, and BMW and Continental's new project into developing "co-pilot" driving technology.
It is a phenomenon that is referred to with a catchy rhyme: “the brain drain.” Older workers are leaving companies, taking their experience and knowledge with them. And, for various reasons, the reservoir is not being refilled at the same rate. Knowledge leaves, and the tank threatens to go dry.
Microchip added the PIC24F “KM” family to its 16-bit PIC microcontroller (MCU) portfolio. This family offers up to 16 KB Flash, 2 KB RAM and 512B EEPROM, along with advanced analog integration, in low pin-count options for cost-sensitive automotive, consumer, medical and industrial applications.
