Our cover story (p12 digital issue or web version) looks ahead to the UK’s leading electronics trade show, Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, which takes place at Farnborough in February.
For Embedded, we explore why electronic design projects fail – and how to get them back on track (p6 digital issue or web version); and in an FPGA primer, we review how the latest FPGAs offer unprecedented levels of flexibility & efficiency, providing a system-level solution to rising design complexity (p8 digital issue or web version).
For Military & Aerospace, we outline how digital beamforming & rapid advancements in RF integration at the component level are helping drive new phased array radar architectures (p16 digital issue or web version).
Our bi-annual IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement (p21 digital issue) opens by reviewing some of the most popular IIoT stories from 2 years of EPDT sister title, Connectivity (p22 digital issue or web version). It also explores how & why sensors provide the ideal starting point on the journey to digitalisation (p23 digital issue or web version), and looks ahead to 2020 to predict the IoT trends that might affect design engineers in the electronics industry (p25 digital issue or web version). We hear about what IoT means for users & manufacturers of frequency control products (p26 digital issue or web version) and we review 7 major Industry 4.0 trends for 2020 that will help define the factory of the future (p27 digital issue or web version).
For T&M, we look at how the evolution of test instrumentation for aerospace & defence is gathering pace (p29 digital issue or web version).
