A requirement to construct a freely-programmable combined instrument featuring a display was on the agenda for automotive designers as early as the mid-1990s.
Can the industrial display manufacturer adapt in a changing technology world that is dictated by commodity markets?
Until 5 years ago many industrial instrumentation and test displays were single colour, character text or simple graphics connected to a microprocessor host displaying basic information readouts or, at best, simple graphical representations of data.
A trend that is fascinating at the moment is the impact that the Internet of Things is having on user interface design.
Now in its 8th year the annual National Electronics Week Exhibition will be taking up residence once again at the NEC, Birmingham on 21st & 22nd April 2015.
Printed electronics is opening unimagined technical and design possibilities in many sectors of industry.
The new iPad Air 2 carries a nearly identical hardware cost as its predecessor, according to the Teardown Analysis Service at IHS Inc.
Engineers are increasingly calling for premium graphics, including high-quality 3D visualisations on ever-smaller devices. How can developers integrate demanding graphical user interfaces and 3D visualisations so they also fit into fanless low-power panel PCs? Inosoft has tested the use of SÜTRON panel PCs with AMD APUs because the visualisation accelerator has already been integrated in the hardware.
Silicon Labs introduced a new family of silicon TV tuners that supports all worldwide terrestrial and cable TV standards.
User interface creation is becoming an increasingly important element in the development process for medical instrumentation.
In recent years, advances in electronic technology have made many innovations and improvements in the healthcare industry possible.
Membrane switches are known for standing up to tough environmental conditions. Flexible and durable, the membrane switch can be customised with embossing, backlighting, sealing, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) shielding.
