EPDT September 2018 issue cover

This month’s issue, online and in print, contains features on Test & Measurement technologies and Energy applications, as well as the latest edition of our regular Electronics Outsourcing supplement.

Our cover story (p29) describes the two main methods of testing PCBAs – and explains their advantages and disadvantages.

Also in T&M, we explore how new measurement devices are helping achieve high-accuracy temperature measurements in any environment, while reducing design complexity (p37); and we talk to the founder of Sony start-up, Qoitech to find out more about their comprehensive toolkit for energy optimisation of IoT devices (p33).

For Energy, we review 5 energy industry trends to look out for (p8); we outline techniques to detect and harden smart electricity meters against tampering (p10); and discuss the energy efficiency management across industry sectors (p14).

Plus, alongside a show preview for What’s New in Electronics Live (p7), our twice-yearly Electronics Outsourcing supplement (p17) includes features on whether to make or buy (p20), 5 steps for more efficient EMS sourcing (p22), determining electronic component and design costs in advance of production (p24), and Trump’s tariffs and the issues that come with them (p26).

Last but not least, Mark Gradwell’s STEM column discusses a range of STEM activities and initiatives targeted at children and families over the summer holidays (p42).

We hope you enjoy!

Until next time,

Sam Holland

Assistant Editor
