How to minimise the cost of microelectronic testing

'More than Moore' and 'more Moore' are today's buzzwords driving the microelectronic industry. Advances in process technology allow engineers to create circuits with growing complexity and offering increasing functionality on smaller surfaces. Hans Manhaeve reports

Sensor networking provides scope for intelligent control

Connecting sensors to a control system by means of a network offers significant time and cost savings over using traditional hard-wiring. Furthermore, as Alistair Rae reports, integrators and end uses can also benefit from a more intelligent control system and improved performance of the overall process

Why do engineers dislike potentiometers?

Potentiometers have been around for a long time and are still, by far, the most commonly used position sensor. So why does every design engineer seem to be looking for a non-contact alternative? Mark Howard examines this phenomenon and explains the pros and cons of potentiometers
