Welcome to Electronic Design's destination for test and measurement technology trends, products, industry news, new applications, articles and commentary from our contributing technical experts and the community.
Whether you are designing or performing quality control testing on individual components or complete assemblies—or simply troubleshooting—the use of an infrared camera with the proper optics is crucial for the detection or measurement of small thermal differences or thermal profiles on these devices....More
Charging battery-operated devices from something as small as a smart watch to as large as an electric-powered bus have traditionally been accomplished with charging cables and AC/DC power adapters of various sizes. However, battery-operated devices are quickly becoming untethered today with the rapid adoption of wireless charging technology. There are two major wireless charging technologies based on either magnetic induction or magnetic resonance. Products based on either or both of these technologies must meet stringent standards....More
VESA released the first type C connector alternate mode specification shortly after the USB-IF released its power delivery and type C specifications, by tailoring the DP1.3 specification to the new connector. This presentation will provide an overview of how the alternate mode works for DisplayPort and discuss in depth the implications of the type C specification and how it changes the testing approach to DisplayPort....More
WiGig’s 7-Gb/s throughput in the 60-GHz region has flirted with reality since at least 2007, but the emergence of ICs, modules, full end-equipment designs, and now lower-cost test solutions may make 2016 the year it breaks through....More
