This month's Tinker's Toolbox podcast revisits our discussion on standards and regulations and their impact on the design engineer. Topics include: when standards may or may not be needed, the role of industry and government in creating them, time and cost issues...
In this episode of the Tinker’s Toolbox podcast, we talk about Standards and regulation, and their impact on the design community
This month’s Tinker’s Toolbox podcast is about the issues and hurdles facing the commercialization and adoption of advanced technologies. For example, Solid-State Lighting, “green” devices, and even relatively well-developed technologies Like MEMS are still pushing for greater adoption in the marketplace.
With all the discussion about rules and responsibility in the wake of the Gulf disaster, this installment of the Tinker's Toolbox deals with electronic safety regulation and the role of the engineer in the process.
WIth the recent spate of natural disasters occurring around the globe, this month's installment of the Tinker's Toolbox continues our migration from a discussion of general engineering tools to a more focused debate on an engineer's role in disaster relief and what should be in an engineer first-responder toolkit.
This TTB conversation included participants from National Instruments and FCI. Topics covered included a recap of previous discussion and the nature of the toolbox discussion in the context of engineering needs for disasters like Haiti.
Moderated by Editorial Director Alix Paultre, participants in this conversation included Richard Levin from National Semiconductor, Richard McDonell from National Instruments, and Thierry Goossens and Bob Marshall from FCI.
The purpose of the Tinker's Toolbox (TTB) project is to foment passion and positivity within the electronic design engineering community by conducting an industry community project to discuss design and development tools and methodologies.
