The engineer’s guide to temperature sensing

In designing personal electronics, industrial or medical applications, engineers must address some of the same challenges: how to increase performance, add features and shrink form factors. Along with these considerations, they must carefully monitor temperature to ensure safety and protect systems and consumers from harm.

Is the UK transport sector ready for winter 2019/20?

In a recent study, scientists from UCL forecasted yet another extreme winter for the beginning of 2020. Those who had their lives turned upside-down by the infamous Beast from the East in 2018 will be hoping for a milder season. Unfortunately, it doesn't look that way. It is too early to know for sure what the upcoming months will bring, but if the UCL predictions are anything to go by, we must start preparing. Our climate is becoming more extreme and unpredictable.

Power supply supervision circuits made simpler with DACs

When designers are defining a system-level power supply, one key consideration has to be the addition of the appropriate protection circuits in order to ensure that the design is not only effective, but robust. Although achieving system-level voltage and current protection can add complexity to your design, you can attain a solution with minimal compromise and cost by incorporating small, cost-effective digital-to-analog converters (DACs) plus simple window comparators.

EVs propelling the high voltage electric heaters market

Rising environmental concerns and emission regulations have led to a paradigm shift in the automobile industry, from IC engine driven vehicles to the adoption of ecofriendly electric and hybrid vehicles. At present, the penetration of electric and hybrid vehicles is about five percent of the overall automobile sales, but it is estimated that in next ten years the demand for electric and hybrid vehicles will grow at a significant pace and will have a prominent share.
