As coronavirus continues to dominate the news cycle, my Editor's comment this month considers what COVID-19 means for electronics... (p4 digital issue or web version)
Our cover story (p12 digital issue or web version) take us under the hood of V2X communications to explain how more connected intelligence in automotive systems will help improve road safety.
Sticking with Automotive, we explain how data-intensive solutions for vehicle testing & the development of driver assistance systems now demand powerful heterogeneous computing platforms (p26 digital issue or web version).
We include a tutorial on how component obsolescence can derail entire products, outlining practical steps design engineers can take to deal with such situations (p5 digital issue or web version).
For Power, we explore the role & importance of the humble fuse – and how semiconductor technology is adding intelligence to it (p8 digital issue or web version); we feature a tutorial on design strategies to address some of the challenging demands of industrial power conversion (p17 digital issue or web version); and we consider how commercial vehicles will meet the drive for efficiency as the automotive industry transitions from internal combustion to EVs (p22 digital issue or web version).
For T&M, we review the testing of crystal oscillators under high atmospheric pressures to determine how they would fare in demanding applications in hostile industrial environments (p29 digital issue or web version).
And finally, our regular STEM Matters column features an interview with Professor Elena Rodríguez Falcón, President & CEO at NMITE, a new kind of engineering school (p34 digital issue or web version).
