NFC vs. Bluetooth Beacons - More Different Than Similar
Bluetooth Beacons and NFC (Near Field Communication) are often mentioned in the same breath, but in terms of technology and applications, they are not really that similar.READ MORE
Second Generation MEMS Sensors Enable Impressive Performance for Automotive and Industrial IMUs
When Murata purchased Finnish MEMS specialist VTI Technologies and renamed it Murata Electronics Oy at the start of 2012, it gained the company’s unique 3D MEMS technology.READ MORE
Ethernet Magnetics: Discrete or Integrated?
If you’re adding wired Ethernet to a design, you will of course have to consider magnetics, but how do you decide between discrete or integrated solutions?Read More
Understanding ESR in Electrolytic Capacitors
Adam Chidley explains how component diversity has made selecting the best capacitors for power-related applications more complex than ever, and why taking independent advice makes sense.Read More
Selecting Fibre Optic Cables
Selecting the right cable and/or connector assembly for a fibre optic installation needn’t be complex, but it is important to understand the requirements of the environment and the application.READ MORE
A Brief Guide to Calculating Heat Sink Requirements for LED Lighting
Thermal management is of critical importance in LED lighting systems. LEDs themselves give off heat when lit due to their own inefficiencies, and knock on effects of that heat can rapidly reduce the LEDs’ lifespan if it isn’t managed carefully.Read More
Choosing the Right Capacitor for Low Voltage Bypass Applications
Making the wrong choice of bypass capacitor can lead to such undesirable side effects as unnecessary power consumption, noise/EMI and reduced reliability, so it’s important to give some thought to the choice of device.Read More
Custom vs. Off-The-Shelf - Selecting the Right Enclosure for Your Design
You've finished your ATX motherboard design and are now looking for an enclosure, either for the prototype board, or the finished board as it enters production.What do you choose?Read More
