This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Sensor technologies & Communications applications, plus EPDT's productronica show preview.
My Editor's Comment this month reflects on the new approach to STEM education being offered by the “UK’s first greenfield university in a generation”... (p4 digital issue or web version)
We include a show preview for productronica (p6 digital issue or web version), the world’s leading trade fair for the electronics development & production industry.
Our cover story (p8 digital issue or web version) outlines 6 rules for designing affordable medtech devices, focusing on innovative sensor technology as the example.
Continuing with Sensors, as teams start to return to the office, we explore how sensor technology can help ensure safe, comfortable and affordable post-COVID workplaces (p12 digital issue or web version); we investigate gas detection using pyroelectric sensors and compare this approach to using thermopiles (p14 digital issue or web version); and we explain the term, sensor linearity – and what it means for engineers designing measurement applications (p18 digital issue or web version).
For Communications, we include a viewpoint asking how the reality of 5G lives up to its promise (p20 digital issue or web version); we review the benefits of customised SoCs for optical & wireless communications networks (p22 digital issue or web version); we explore the state of play for Angle of Arrival technology for locating & tracking of Bluetooth devices (p26 digital issue or web version); and we explain what spectrum monitoring and recording is – and why software defined radio (SDR) technologies offer a good solution (p28 digital issue or web version).
And for T&M, we include the top 10 questions to consider when selecting a measurement sensor (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 in the future. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org...
