This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Embedded technologies and Aerospace & Defence applications, as well as editorial reviewing CES 2021 and what 2021 holds for electronics & technology.
My Editor's Comment this month reviews some of the key takeaways from CES 2021 and considers what the year might hold for the electronics industry… (p4 digital issue or web version).
Our cover story (p6 digital issue or web version) outlines examples from across industry – including aerospace & defence – where the pandemic is forcing innovation and accelerating existing trends.
Sticking with Military & Aerospace, we review some of the biggest challenges, concerns and trends facing recent survey respondents in relation to embedded software development for aerospace & defence (p16 digital issue or web version); and we outline key considerations when designing embedded systems for processing data in mission-critical defence applications (p21 digital issue or web version).
For Embedded, we include a tutorial on FPGA fundamentals for embedded design engineers (p10 digital issue or web version); we outline the reasons why you need to check that your OS choice is best suited to the needs of your project (p18 digital issue or web version); we discuss how to verify an open-source RISC-V core before using it in a chip of your own (p24 digital issue or web version); we explain why, with today’s heterogeneous electronic devices, all engineering disciplines must work seamlessly together as one unit (p27 digital issue or web version); and we learn why obsolescence management processes are crucial (p30 digital issue or web version).
And finally, for Test & Measurement, we include a case study on aerospace validation and production test systems (p31 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 in the future. You can email me at email@example.com...
