What’s the difference between AI and Robotics?
How does the field of artificial intelligence differ from robotics? They’re often used interchangeably, so the differences can be difficult to understand.
Early Stage Design Considerations of Starting a PCB Project from Scratch
There’s nothing quite like the smell of hot solder on a Sunday afternoon, tinkering in your basement as you bring a new electronic concept to life. PCBs are the foundation of modern electronics.
Wearable Technology: Types of Materials Used
Wearable tech is officially the next big innovation in technology, and its popularity has skyrocketed in the past few years. It seems like every few months...
On the Order Form
People get ideas. Naturally, they want to act on those ideas. The hold-up comes when they don’t really know what they’re getting into with regards to the PCB.
How Tesla Model 3 Showcases Where Cars Are Heading
The Tesla Model 3 is one of the most highly anticipated cars of the decade. As one of Tesla’s first forays into making its revolutionary cars more affordable for the general public ..
Making Sense Out of Sensors
The human, or any other animal’s body, is a marvel for its ability to take in data from its surroundings. We can detect light, temperature, pressure, aroma, and, sound. Some member...
Augmented Reality Eyewear Beyond Google Glass
Augmented technology has broken into the mainstream, with popular apps such as Pokemon Go, Snapchat and Instagram face filters available to anyone with a smartphone. The next step in the wave of AR
Maintaining a Schedule When Everyone is in a Panic
Whether the Designer is driving schedule or keeping the Project Manager in the loop, we need to hone the skill of estimating a job accurately and with sufficient wiggle room.
Soldiers or Cyborgs? The Technology Behind Enhanced Armor
Very soon, cyborg soldiers might not just be the stuff of science fiction anymore — the military has several active projects that work on using technology to enhance a soldier’s human abilities.
Beyond Drones: Three Uses for Autonomous Devices on the Battlefield
Here’s a round-up of three innovative autonomous devices that are reshaping military technology.
A Guide to PCB Material Selection
A material selection guide is as good a place as any to start. Your typical PCB consists of one or more layers of copper laminated between sheet layers of a non-conductive substrate.
Component Placement Strategies in Multi-board PCB Systems
There are definitely limits on how much circuitry can fit on a single board. The board itself has an upper limit around the size...
Steering the PCB from Prototype to Production
Our last topic was about getting off to a good start and touched lightly on placement aspects. We're going to get a little bit of solder paste under our fingernails this time around. Move the scenario
3D Printing’s Impact in the Real World: Medicine, Food Production, and Automotive
Though 3D printing technology was introduced more than three decades ago, it’s only recently gained traction with a wider market. 3D printers were one of Amazon’s most popular holiday gifts for...
On Board, as in Life, Timing is Everything (almost) | PCB Trace Length – Staying in the Sweet Spot
We are lucky to have the technology that helps us manage timing constraints. X-nets, pin-pairs, and match-groups may seem a little daunting at first. Once mastered, these are fantastic tools for...
Notes from the Board Room - on Checklists
Not just one, there should be a sanity check at every major step in the life of a layout. Some of us fondly remember the Apollo program on the grainy black-and-white TVs of the day. The whole...
What to Watch in Modern 3D Electronics
Today’s 3D electronics manufacturing processes let you create circuitry on 3D surfaces, giving you flexibility and control that flat circuit boards of the past could not. This enables smooth,...
