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,...
