This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Displays technologies & Medical applications.
In my 51st issue as Editor, my Editor's Comment this month reflects on four (and a bit) years at EPDT… (p4 digital issue or web version)
Our cover story (p5 digital issue or web version) reflects on electronics and tech trends for the post-pandemic era, including several relating to this issue’s themes…
For Displays, we explain why hygienic design principles, combined with suitable cleaning regimes, are essential – especially considering the recent pandemic (p8 digital issue or web version); we review the use of bar type displays to provide optimised HMIs in certain applications (p11 digital issue or web version); and we outline how e-paper can be used to deliver remote messaging in home & building automation, digital healthcare & the hospitality sector (p14 digital issue or web version).
For Medical, we review how to protect medical equipment against electrical issues that could otherwise harm the equipment, staff & patients (p18 digital issue or web version); post-Brexit, we outline how UKCA product marking is replacing EU CE marking for products, including medical devices, being placed on the market across most of the UK (p24 digital issue or web version); and we discuss the vital role UV-C & robotics can play in disinfection of medical settings – and what to consider when specifying power supplies (p27 digital issue or web version).
We also unpick some of the terminology LED product suppliers use to describe their products (p16 digital issue or web version).
And finally, we continue our Medical theme with a brace of T&M case studies, first outlining how a robust, accurate & repeatable measurement & control system helped enhance both product development & verification testing of life-critical paediatric artificial heart pumps (p30 digital issue or web version); and then reviewing the delivery of a custom microwave MUX switch for MRI ATE on time, on budget & with uprated specs (p32 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...
