EPDT's February 2018 issue is now available
05 February 2018
Our latest issue covers wireless and medical areas, with a cover feature on how the technological demand from hospitals, practitioners and patients is driving miniaturised medtech.
Our February 2018 issue (links to digital version; click here to register for our print edition) features an industry viewpoint on the implications of adopting eSIM technology, and a tutorial on what the new Medical Device Regulation means for medtech manufacturers selling within the EU.
We include a review of some of the key aspects of NarrowBand-IoT that explains why testing of low cost IoT devices remains critical to ensure optimum battery performance and to minimise interference.
Also inside: case studies on how researchers hacked proprietary protocols used in implantable medical devices to expose critical security flaws. Plus, the use of passive Wi-Fi sensing and machine learning to monitor the health of patients in nursing homes, unobtrusively and without physical contact.
We learn how to discern good versus bad cell self-discharge performance of Li-Ion batteries in minutes, rather than weeks. And we preview ElectroTestExpo 2018, a co-operative event aimed at electronics hardware design and production test engineers. Finally, in Editor Mark Gradwell's STEM column, look out for a review on the FIRST LEGO League initiative.
