We take air conditioning (cooling plus humidity control) for granted, and its development is largely due to one man’s “flash” of insight related to thermal principles and basic physics. It’s hard for us today, with the ubiquitous air conditioning (A/C) and mechanical refrigeration we enjoy effortlessly, to grasp how A/C changed our lives: it made […]
Hosted by Jeff Shepard, EE World has organized this “virtual conversation” with Gary Bronner (GB), Senior Vice President with Rambus Labs. Mr. Bronner has generously agreed to share his experience and insights into AI applications and emerging computing architectures. JS: What is usually the biggest challenge designers face when first using artificial intelligence? GB: One […]
A fuel cell converts oxygen or another oxidizing agent and hydrogen or some other fuel into electricity and heat. A third byproduct, depending on the fuel used, is methane or another non-earth-friendly substance. But the most basic fuel cell combines hydrogen and oxygen to produce pure water. This simple, long-lasting device with no moving parts […]
Functional safety is an important feature in many embedded systems today. Designers need to know the specific safety integrity levels that must be met in various application environments and software development standards and guidelines. The use of an integrated development environment can efficiently bring these various requirements together to maximize the productivity of the development […]
Power amplifier efficiency too center stage at the 2020 International Microwave Symposium’s 5G Summit. In this video interview, Naveen Yanduru of Renesas, one of the summit’s presenters, explains why engineers need to continue working on the problem.
The design of security for embedded systems is a critical and difficult task. Security requirements are often not fully identified at the beginning of the project. Once they have been identified they are not necessarily static and can change multiple times through the design cycle. One reason for changing security requirements is that the various […]
by Dialog Semiconductor The photovoltaic (PV) panels are special power supplies that deliver green and renewable power. PV panels have non-constant power based on many parameters (sun irradiation and angle, shadow percentage, temperature, and hotspot effect issue). The solar panel contains a matrix of solar cells that converts the sun irradiation to power. Connecting more […]
Three of the keys to successfully managing power consumption and dissipation in embedded systems are using various active power management techniques, power-aware code and software optimization, and making power management an integral part of the design flow process from the beginning. Active power management can include the use of power gating, clock gating, dynamic voltage […]
5G private networks will have more capabilities and broader appeal than LTE private networks. Planning, implementing, and maintaining a 5G private network has unique challenges for deployment and test.
