Scientists develop ‘Star Trek’-inspired medical diagnostic device

University of Glasgow researchers in the UK have developed a device that will help medics make quick and accurate diagnosis of a patient, not far off from the Star Trek’s famous ‘tricorder’.

Research shows that nanomachine swarms could improve the efficiency of other machines

Nanotech researchers at the University of Luxembourg have found that nanomachines are far more efficient at converting one type energy into another compared to their larger counterparts, such as motors and other industrial machines, for example.

A year in the life of Bluetooth Mesh

Over two decades, Bluetooth technology has revolutionised the IoT market, adding new capabilities, aiding innovation and establishing new markets – from wireless audio to connected devices.

New applications drive increased accuracy in power measurement

As markets for power electronics expand and grow, so does the need for their reliable testing, enhanced safety, efficiency and performance.

Real-time vs common spectrum analysers

RF technology is increasingly being harnessed to send data from a device under test (DUT) to a receiver.

Top five benefits of 5G New Radio

The new air interface, dubbed 5G New Radio (NR), is being developed to support a wide variety of services and devices on 5G; it promises to provide significant benefits for mobile networks, including improved performance, flexibility, scaleability and efficiency.

Scanning acoustic microscopy, from lab to high-throughput fab

The growing volumes of silicon ingots, wafers, integrated circuits (ICs), MEMS and other electronic packages requires equipment that performs non-destructive imaging and materials analysis.

Structural design of a space active phased array antenna

More and more is being required of space antennas: multi-functionality, multi-band coverage, long range, higher transmitting power, yet lower power consumption, driven by the need for ever-increasing data-transfer capacities. Earlier antennas had small apertures and low gain, making them unsuitable for these growing requirements.

Ultra-wideband calibration-free 6-bit 4GSps folding-interpolating ADC

In high-speed optical communication receivers, high-speed analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs) provide sample information for use with DSP-based signal equalisation.

0-10V to 0-5V signal converter - analogue input module
0-10V to 0-5V signal converter – analogue input modules

This column is dedicated to a project involving thirteen analogue input modules and seven analogue output modules to be used with a 5V microcontroller through its ADC and DAC channels.
