New edition of Electronic Design magazine is now available. In July 2014 issue, you can get latest news and technical information needed by electronic engineers and engineering managers. Here are featured articles for this month.
The Top 101 Components Of 2014
Enclosures, sensors, switches, passives, and more prove their mettle in this year’s survey.
White Space Radio Gives New Life To Old Spectrum
Spectrum sharing and cognitive radio create new wireless services.
Hard-Won Knowledge Mitigates Effects Of Tin Whiskers
While pure tin finished surfaces have the potential to grow tin whiskers, designers can employ several mitigation strategies to prevent their growth during the soldering process.
Smart Programming And Peripherals Reduce Power Requirements
A variety of techniques can minimize how much power your microcontroller needs, extending battery life or reducing how hard your energy harvesting systems have to work.
Use Advanced PCB Technology To Produce 50% Smaller Product Designs
High-density interconnect (HDI) technology allows PCB designers to increase the routing density, reduce the layer count, and improve the thermal and electrical characteristics of their board designs. Advanced via technology allows two conventional eight-layer cards to be combined into one 18-layer HDI card creating a product that is 50% smaller.
Text Encoding Simplifies Microcontroller Command Parsing
Parsing text such as used in SCPI commands for a PIC microcontroller consumes considerable processor time and resources. By converting the text into two-letter pairs using a simple encoding table, and representing each by a 16-bit number, a much-more efficient parsing scheme can be implemented.
Automata Processor Piques Parallel Processing
The parallel processor is similar to an FPGA and a content addressable memory (CAM), but it is designed to handle stream-processing tasks in parallel.
