EPDT July 2020 issue (inc. Embedded & Mil/Aero features + IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement) now available online
03 July 2020
This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Embedded technologies and Military & Aerospace applications, plus EPDT's twice-yearly IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement.
As the nation starts to take the first tentative steps to restart the economy, my Editor's Comment this month considers how COVID-19 is impacting UK manufacturing (p4 digital issue or web version).
Our cover story (p6 digital issue or web version) offers hints and tips to help keep your electronics and embedded design projects on track while teams work from home during the lockdown.
Sticking with Embedded, we explore how virtual channels can be used to consolidate different inputs, such as data from image, radar and time-of-flight sensors, into a single stream (p13 digital issue or web version); and we review how to bring the benefits of unique identity & remote authentication to embedded systems in a cost effective and scalable supply chain environment (p17 digital issue or web version).
For Mil/Aero, we include a case study on how a UK-based provider of crystals, oscillators and other frequency-related electronics components can now offer an ITAR-free, UK-manufactured source of surface mount military clock oscillators (p10 digital issue or web version); and we feature a tutorial covering some of the key updates to the latest UK defence EMC standards (p15 digital issue or web version).
Our bi-annual IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement (p21 digital issue) opens by asking if COVID-19 will accelerate IoT & Industry 4.0 adoption (p23 digital issue or web version); it also reviews how connected smart lighting can help improve in-home health & wellness (p24 digital issue or web version); it features a Q&A with Sigfox on its 0G network, the world’s largest dedicated wireless network purpose-built for connecting devices and systems using low-power to the internet (p26 digital issue or web version); it explores how asset-intensive industries like manufacturing, oil & gas, mining, energy, utilities and logistics, are deploying IoT technologies to enable companies to monitor, track and optimise those assets (p28 digital issue or web version); and it explains how plug-and-play condition monitoring can help companies quickly deploy predictive equipment maintenance (p30 digital issue or web version).
For T&M, we review how manufacturers of hidden technology can access North American markets (p32 digital issue or web version).
And finally, our regular STEM Matters column explores how, in its 150th year, The IET is highlighting the engineering #DifferenceMakers building technology solutions to solve the global grand challenges facing society (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...
