EPDT June 2020 issue (inc. ElectroMech & Comms features + Distribution supplement) now available online
03 June 2020
This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Electromechanical & Enclosures technologies and Communications applications, plus EPDT's twice-yearly Electronics Distribution supplement.
As we start to consider what the world may look like post-lockdown, my Editor's Comment this month asks if COVID-19 might accelerate some technology adoption curves (p4 digital issue or web version).
Our cover story (p7 digital issue or web version) features two case studies – around cubesats and Hyperloop – that push existing boundaries to travel further and faster in challenging environments, demanding maximum performance from every component – including smaller, faster & lighter connecters.
Sticking with Electromechanical, we include another case study on the design of bespoke rugged enclosures for comms testing (p6 digital issue or web version).
For Communications, we explore how RF engineers can take full advantage of the strengths of Doherty amplifiers to maximise energy efficiency of 5G base stations (p9 digital issue or web version); we review the ability of enterprise-grade WANs to handle sensor-generated traffic (p17 digital issue or web version); and (for T&M) we explore the applications that 5G Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications will enable, its technology enablers & the testing challenges (p29 digital issue or web version).
Our bi-annual Electronics Distribution supplement (p19 digital issue) opens with the Chairman of the ecsn reviewing the impact of COVID-19 on the distribution market (p20 digital issue or web version), and also includes contributions from components distributors outlining their own response to COVID-19, in terms of supporting supply chains (p23 digital issue or web version & p27 digital issue or web version).
And finally, our regular STEM Matters column explores how the COVID-19 crisis is influencing EdTech (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 firstname.lastname@example.org...
