This month’s issue contains features on Sensor technologies & Medical applications, plus our embedded world show preview.

In the wake of #CES2020, this month's Editor's comment looks ahead to what 2020 holds for the electronics industry and muses on key takeaways from the world's biggest tech & consumer electronics show... (p4 digital issue or web version)

Our cover story (p17 digital issue or web version) explores the challenges of designing new MedTech devices to help professionals & patients in the medical sector. We also preview the leading exhibition & conference for the global embedded community, embedded world (p7 digital issue or web version), which takes place again in Nuremberg from 25th-27th February.

For Sensors, we explore: how current sensing technologies can help design engineers meet the challenges of advanced embedded systems (p10 digital issue or web version); the importance of accurate temperature monitoring for SoC-based systems (p19 digital issue or web version); and how rugged enclosure solutions are bringing advanced sensing technology to the world’s most challenging environments (p26 digital issue or web version).

For Medical, we review some of the sensor technologies used in wearables for vital signs monitoring (p23 digital issue or web version) and we consider the importance of effective cleaning in producing fully functioning medical electronic assemblies (p28 digital issue or web version).

For T&M, we explain how thorough performance testing can help reduce product recall risks, cut costs and protect EEE manufacturers from negative consumer reviews (p31 digital issue or web version).

And finally, our regular STEM Matters column highlights three young female engineers recently recognised at the IET’s Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards for their work in engineering (p34 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 mark.gradwell@imlgroup.co.uk...
