EDN: Power supply management in quantum computers

Power supply management in quantum computers

In 2016, the first quantum computers were able to be programmed from a high level user interface to run arbitrary quantum algorithms. The design architectures were small in scale, with just a handful of qubits each. Some of the big players like IBM, Google, Microsoft, as well as several start-ups have an ultimate goal to create a larger scale device of commercial viability sometime in the near future.

Design World: Nano Dimension introduced low-volume, continuous additive manufacturing system for electronics production

Nano Dimension introduced low-volume, continuous additive manufacturing system for electronics production

Additively manufacturing functional circuits round-the-clock with little or no operator intervention is possible with the new DragonFly LDM precision additive manufacturing system from Nano Dimension. This 3D printer will build electronic components such as multilayer Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), antennas, sensors and so on, round-the-clock, enabling Nano Dimension to shift from developing prototyping printers to systems that handle one-off prototypes as well as low-volume manufacturing of printed electronics.

TreeHugger: 48 Volts DC is the new 12 Volts DC.

48 Volts DC is the new 12 Volts DC.

Could it also be the new 120 Volts AC? ...whenever I talk about Direct Current vs Alternating current I come away singed and shocked by the comments, like my last one, where even fans noted, "This is about the most wrong article I've seen you write, Lloyd." But to this day, I do not understand why we have a system where every single light bulb now has to have a little transformer and rectifier to feed it DC, and almost everything we plug into the wall now has a transformer brick on it. Our domestic world now pretty much runs on DC.

Evaluation Engineering: The evolution of Industry 4.0, through the eyes of the PCB manufacturer

The evolution of industry 4.0, through the eyes of the PCB manufacturer

Industry 4.0—known to some as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or smart factory—promises to transform the manufacturing and production infrastructure in profound ways. Its name derives from its potential to usher in the fourth industrial revolution—a bold objective when one considers the magnitude of the revolutions in steam power, assembly-line production, and computer automation that preceded it.

EBN: Shared Data Mitigates Supply Chain Cost of Electronics Counterfeiting

Shared Data Migration Mitigates Supply Chain Cost of Electronics Counterfeiting

Electronics counterfeiting is gaining attention as evidenced by the recent IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust chaired by Professor Mark Tehranipoor.  More than 250 industry and academic leaders attended the conference to address the growing threat that counterfeit devices are posing to the security of the electronics supply chain.  Inadvertent use of recycled, refurbished, or re-marked components can result in significant business risk for a manufacturer’s customers, resulting in unwanted returns and damage to their brand value.
