This month's question is: With the continuous improvement in the reliability of commercial parts, will harsh environment performance remain a major focus in military electronics?
This month's Roundtable question is “How important do you feel regulation and standards are to the electronics industry? Do you feel they help development, or hinder it?” Our answers come from engineers at Fraunhofer, Microsemi, GreenPeak, and Texas Instruments.
This month's Roundtable question was "What technology will most impact the military and aerospace market in the near future?" Our answers this month come from Matt Behr of MathWorks and Joe Moxley of Custom Electronics.
This month's Roundtable question is “How do you feel solid-state lighting will impact Industrial, Military, and/or hi-rel applications in the coming year?"
This month's Roundtable question is, "What do you feel is the most challenging aspect of incorporating a multicore processor into a design for the engineer?”
This month's ECN Roundtable question is: “What technology or industry design trend do you feel will impact the power industry the most in the coming year?"
The answers to our November Roundtable question: “What facets of testing are most often overlooked by design professionals?” underscore not only the importance of test in design, but also how many ways test can help the engineer.
This month's question is "How will the jobless recovery impact the way semiconductors are designed, developed, and created?" The question is answered this month by Colin Baldwin of Open-Silicon.
The Roundtable question for August is “How much do you feel the current push for “green” tech comes from image and the desire to appear ecologically responsible, and how much does it come from a true pursuit of performance improvement in power systems?”
In this month's Roundtable, we ask our guests about the impact of military RPV tech on the development of civilian systems.
This month's question, "In what area of development do you feel the most progress in mixed-signal ICs will occur?" was answed by Raymond Lee of MagnaChip, Stephen Kempainen of National Semiconductor, and John Whalen of Fairchild Semiconductor.
This month's question, “What needs to be done for digital power technology to become more accessible to the industry, especially for smaller companies?”, was ansered by Mark Adams of CUI, Chris Young of Intersil, and Rick Zarr of National Semiconductor.
This year at APEC I moderated a rap session on dealing with the Smart Grid. It had a standing-room-only crowd, and demonstrated how much interest exists on both the technical and political issues involved.
This month's question, "What is the biggest challenge facing the adoption of multicore processors by the engineering community for more applications?" was answered by people from Texas Instruments, Freescale, The Mathworks, and National Instruments.
