Electronic Product Design & Test's November issue cover

This month's issue contains stories on electromechanical technologies and medical applications, especially wearable patient care technology, as well as our regular Electronics Outsourcing supplement.

This month's issue (links to digital version; click here to register for the print version) has a cover feature on medical wearables in the interest of remote patient monitoring, which helps hospitals to control costs and improve care – plus how energy harvesting addresses the challenges of powering such devices.

In our electromechanical feature, we review system design case studies from an electromagnetic actuator specialist and examine how reed relays compare with electromechanical relays.

In another medical feature this month, look out for a case study on how LED lighting can help reduce energy costs and improve hospital environments for patients and staff; and how, as the IoT drives more connected and intelligent medical devices, hypervisor technology is becoming more important to securely and efficiently manage the required embedded systems.

In our test & measurement focus, we review challenges in wireless test system design. Moreover, Mark Gradwell’s STEM column explores a fascinating new tool for visualising STEM education qualification data, launched by the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Physics.

Finally, in our Electronics Outsourcing supplement, topics include electronics waste, maintenance, repair and overhaul services, electromechanical assembly, and new product introduction.

Looking forward to next month!
