EPDT September 2019 issue (inc. T&M & Energy features + Outsourcing supplement) now available online
02 September 2019
This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Test & Measurement tech & Energy applications, plus EPDT's twice-yearly Electronics Outsourcing supplement.
As 2019’s theme for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week is announced, my Editor's Comment this month reviews how engineers are on a mission to make the world a better place (p4 digital issue or web version)...
Our cover story explains why 5G will be the next big driver of change – and how equipment rental & leasing in T&M can offer vital flexibility to both mobile network operators & 5G equipment manufacturers as they address this emerging next mobile standard (p12 digital issue or web version).
Also in Test & Measurement, we explore how selecting the right oscilloscope can help you get to market faster (p6 digital issue or web version), how today’s network analysers must address challenging complex DUT component characterisation (p9 digital issue or web version) and why it’s important for design engineers to select the right batteries for portable T&M equipment (p35 digital issue or web version).
In Energy, we explain how advanced battery management can deliver higher reliability, safety & 30% longer lifetime in energy storage systems (p17 digital issue or web version), and we explore increasing demand for capacitors across a range of energy storage applications, and how glass-to-aluminum-seal (GTAS) technology can support long, reliable service lives for these electronic components (p32 digital issue or web version).
Our biannual Electronics Outsourcing supplement (p23 digital issue) features a case study looking at why growing numbers of SME electronics OEMs are adopting an outsourced manufacturing model (p24 digital issue or web version); it reviews how flexible PCBs are leading the charge into the second century of electronics (p26 digital issue or web version); and it discusses the common challenges electronics start-ups face in scaling up manufacturing (p29 digital issue or web version).
And finally, as A-level results arrive, my regular STEM column explores some of the implications for engineering, science and technology (p38 digital issue or web version).
As always, I hope you enjoy the issue – and I’d love to hear what you think or any ideas for topics you’d like EPDT to cover. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org...
