This month’s issue, now available in print or digital editions, contains features on Lighting & Rail, plus a show preview for ElectroTestExpo, editorial discussing the impact of war in Ukraine on the electronics industry & EPDT's annual PXI for Test & Measurement supplement.
My Editor's Comment this month considers the impact of war in Ukraine on an already beleaguered electronics industry supply chain (p4 digital issue or web version).
Our cover story (p6 digital issue or web version) explains how UV-C LEDs can play a key role in the disinfection & sterilisation of surfaces, interior spaces and even water.
Sticking with Lighting, we discuss the benefits & limitations of DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) for lighting control (p10 digital issue or web version).
For Rail, we outline 5 ways IoT can enhance passenger experience & safety within train stations (p12 digital issue or web version).
We also include a show preview for ElectroTestExpo – the UK’s only dedicated board test, inspection, device programming & debug event for electronics design & test engineers (p33 digital issue or web version).
Our annual PXI for T&M supplement (p15 digital issue) opens with the PXISA President outlining why PXI continues to be the dominant modular instrumentation standard for electronics T&M (p16 digital issue or web version). We also explain how PXI helped engineers at an EV start-up quickly build a complete physical HILS test system (p20 digital issue or web version); we outline the benefits of adopting a modular open systems approach (MOSA) based on PXI – especially for legacy test systems (p24 digital issue or web version); we review how PXI helped deliver the industry’s first high-frequency PCB solution for testing 100% of board components (p26 digital issue or web version); we explain how PXI can be used to build a MEMS microphone production test system (p28 digital issue or web version); and we include a case study on using software-defined modular PXI instrumentation to create a flexible test system to automatically verify & characterize new ultra-low-power semiconductor chip designs (p30 digital issue or web version).
