EPDT's December 2018 issue is now available!

03 December 2018

This month’s issue contains features on sensor technologies and industrial applications, plus EPDT’s regular Electronics Distribution supplement. Our cover story (p8) explores the roots and development of face recognition technology, as well as some of its key applications and technology to help implement it.

Also in Sensors: we review how gesture control can offer an alternative to ubiquitous touch interfaces (p6); and we explore how image sensor platforms can help optimise solutions for industrial machine vision systems (p16).

Moreover, as the IIoT sees the merging of plant floor data from industrial processes with cloud applications, we explore industrial control and management at the edge (p13).

In our biannual Electronics Distribution supplement (p19), the chairman of the ECSN reviews the ‘state of the nation’ for the electronics component industry (p20); we explore how OEMs can try to manage the ongoing electronic components shortage (p24 and p30); and we introduce an exclusive tour around Digi-Key’s headquarters in Thief River Falls, Minnesota (p27).

And finally, Editor Mark Gradwell’s regular STEM column considers how to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists (p34)!

As always, we hope you enjoy the issue – and we are just an email away if you’d like to offer your thoughts!

With best wishes,

Sam Holland

Assistant Editor
