ON Semiconductor has launched the Ezairo 7100 series of integrated circuits and packaged hybrids for advanced hearing aids and hearing implant devices. With five times the processing power of previous systems, the system-on-chip (SoC) provides built-in flexibility to support evolving algorithm, wireless and system-level needs.
The automotive industry is undergoing two major paradigm shifts that each will demand more involvement from the distribution channel. The first of these is the race to more fuel efficiency for vehicles that will be coming down the pike in the future. By 2025, automotive fuel efficiency must reach an average of 54.5 miles per gallon.
Package-on-package (PoP) technology is coming on strong and continues to overshadow the ever popular system-on-chip (SoC) and other similar packaging types. The rationale behind PoP is simple. More OEMs are miniaturizing their products, but are intent on adding more functionality.
Advances in medical technology in the past century alone have made possible what was previously considered unfeasible. Where once certain illnesses caused the deaths of millions worldwide, medical innovation has now eliminated many dreaded diseases.
Many of the automation systems that increasingly appear in our daily lives have a fundamental need to sense the presence and movement of human beings. Whether that system simply shuts off the lights to save energy at home or triggers an emergency response in a health care facility, accurate motion sensing is a crucial requirement.
Agriculture is arguably one of the most important industries in the world. After all, with an estimated population of over 7 billion people, there are a lot of mouths to feed. Unfortunately, agriculture is also one of the most unpredictable industries. Crops are subject to the whims of nature with droughts, fire, rain, sun, and hail.
Global challenges in energy generation and consumption motivates governments worldwide to set ambitious goals for increased energy efficiency, which results in a fast growing need for energy efficient buildings. Therefore, innovative, sustainable technologies that can be easily installed, especially in retrofit projects, are a necessity if the governments’ ambitious objectives are to be realized.
Larson Electronics has announced today the release of a new high-bay LED fixture designed to provide better performance than standard HID and incandescent high bay fixtures. The EPLC2-HB-150LED-RT Explosion Proof High Bay Light features high output in a compact size and is a rugged and light weight alternative to bulkier HID units.
Behlman Electronics has announced another breakthrough that will help VPX engineers achieve their design goals faster, easier, more efficiently and more economically. Behlman’s VPXtraä 1000CD and VPXtraä 1000CM “Expanded” Data Sheets provide a combined total of 27-pages of detailed text....
If you haven’t met the TSA – meaning you somehow haven’t flown anywhere in the last 12 years – know that they’re the crotch-grabbing, nude-scanning, senior-citizen harassing government agency in charge of airport security. And they really hate shoes. But the mighty TSA has apparently met its match in an 87-year-old, half-deaf World War II vet.
I think it’s time to distinguish between an “Internet of Things” and an “Internet of useful Things.” When I’m talking to customers who are looking for remote sensor solutions, there are many fields where the IoT could really solve emerging problems. A service

A recently released video of Iran’s new “suicide remotely piloted vehicle” called the Ra’ad 85—aka Thunder 85—reveals it might be less impressive than originally announced. A few weeks ago, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force, announced the Ra’ad 85 would be a game-changer for Iran’s military.
