This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on RF & Wireless technologies and Industrial applications, plus the latest edition of EPDT's twice-yearly IoT & Industry 4.0 supplement.
As we ease our way out of lockdown 3.0, my Editor's Comment this month considers how we are tentatively braced for further relaxations of coronavirus restrictions – and what it might mean for the business community and electronics industry... (p4 digital issue or web version).
Our sponsored cover story (p6 digital issue or web version) tells us more about a major new event for our industry, Manufacturing & Engineering Week, with particular focus on its Design Engineering Expo.
Sticking with RF & Wireless, we explore the technology challenges for 5G of moving up to D-band frequencies and the production of next-generation mmWave semiconductor components (p8 digital issue or web version); and, for T&M, we also discuss some of the challenges and issues around testing RF wireless products (p30 digital issue or web version).
For Industrial, we detail the origins, core elements, timeline and current status of the real-time industrial Ethernet standard for automation, EtherCAT (p12 digital issue or web version); and we outline what defines OT (operational technology), how it differs from IT and the benefits of convergence between the two (p16 digital issue or web version).
