Low-Power Design Becomes Even More Complex

The growth of new SoC applications such as AI/ML, IoT, and automotive has created new power management problems. Power has become a gating factor in advanced designs, even when low-power designs are not the primary goal. Solving these issues requires engineers to cross domains, forging new partnerships between teams. This article examines how companies are tackling power issues in advanced designs.

Digitalization for Smarter Electronics Manufacturing

Small and medium-sized companies have been relatively slow to adopt digitalization technologies for electronics manufacturing. The benefits of smart manufacturing, however, are becoming critical as companies must become more agile, efficient, and flexible to compete. This article describes how smart manufacturing technology improves productivity through a single digital thread from product design through manufacturing.

Power management has become a primary concern of embedded developers. Colin Walls looks at three power saving procedures that can be used in embedded software, with a focus on the low power modes available on many commercial CPUs.

Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion

Sensors are critical to the utility and convenience provided by the now ubiquitous smart device. Smartphones, smart home assistants, security systems, and much more use sensors to sense environmental factors, triggering a response if necessary. A unique type of silicon device called a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) enables these sensors. This article explores the design tools and unique considerations of MEMS devices.
