Successful Triboelectric Energy Harvesting and Sensing (TENG): What Next?


The new triboelectrics addresses big issues such as pandemics, air pollution and sensors everywhere so it can create billion dollar businesses. It has already led to sale of self-powered electrostatic face masks that really do filter deadly particulates. It will lead to making electricity where it is needed and self-powered sensors and actuators that signal status. Here comes the world of less battery and no battery.

DFMStream/CAM350 Webinar

DownStream Technologies

At this free webinar you will learn about DFMStream, the new product from DownStream Technologies that provides powerful DFM capabilities in an easy-to- use tool suite. DFMStream bridges the gap between engineering and fabrication, helps save valuable time and reduces new product introduction bottlenecks.

Identifying DFM issues before you start the fabrication process
Preparing PCB design data for manufacturing is a critical step in the new product introduction process. Designs that work in a virtual PCB CAD system may unknowingly break critical manufacturing rules resulting in delayed delivery times as deviations and work-arounds are performed at the manufacturer.

How to Reduce Battery Cell Manufacturing Time

Keysight Technologies

The traditional calculation method to measure the lithium-ion cell self-discharge is by how much the open-circuit voltage of the cells changes over time.

It can take days or weeks for the open-circuit voltage to change enough to determine whether the self-discharge of the cells is beyond acceptable limits, or not.

In this webinar, we will compare two methods for measuring self-discharge: traditional open-circuit voltage.

BluePrint-PCB Webinar

DownStream Technologies

Current tools and methodologies for PCB Documentation are essentially workarounds that, rather than automating, in fact create obstacles to quickly producing detailed and accurate PCB documentation.

What is needed is a new approach to PCB documentation – a standalone PCB document authoring tool, developed in the style of Microsoft Office, which quickly creates electronic drawings to drive the PCB fabrication and assembly processes; a tool that “knows” it is creating a PCB document and leverages the PCB CAD data to automatically create and intelligently link PCB Views, details, document notes, external documents, URLs and multi-media content.

The result should be an electronic document which better articulates the instructions for PCB manufacturing, which can be changed instantly, and will lead to faster and more accurate new product introduction. A new product from DownStream Technologies – BluePrint for Printed Circuit Boards – is just such a product.

Measure Noise Figure with Signal Analyzers

Keysight Technologies

Noise figure is one of the fundamental parameters that differentiates one system, amplifier, or transistor from another. To minimize the problems resulting from noise generated in RF systems, you can either make a weak signal stronger or reduce the noise of that system or its individual components. But first, you must be able to measure the noise figure of your system to know how best to fix it. In this webinar, learn how to make accurate and repeatable noise figure measurements.

Robotic Surgery: Where Are We Today?


IDTechEx research has determined that the robotic surgery market will exceed $12 billion by 2030. It is very different today than it was five years ago as it is no longer the single company market it once was.

The field is rapidly growing, as new companies are constantly joining the race. Each new entrant is fuelling the diversification of this technology into previously unexplored territories, and the field is becoming increasingly broad and complex. Competition in the robotic surgery market has never been more fierce as each company seeks to disrupt the reign of the current market leader.

The range of capabilities and applications of surgical robots has expanded dramatically in the last decade and, with the range of benefits that they offer, it is only a matter of time before they become widely implemented into operating rooms.

USB-C "from layout to production"

Würth Elektronik

USB-C now offers different variants of connectors from USB 2.0 in a type-C housing to type-C for 10 GBit data rate. The housing variants have also become more diverse. From the horizontal hybrid type to vertical variants to the mid-mount type, which is placed in a PCB cutout. All of these types have their own special characteristics, which in many cases must be taken into account in the layout so that problem-free production is possible afterwards.

Hybrid Techniques for the Modeling/Simulation of PCBs


Modeling printed circuit boards (PCB) can be complex and challenging. Board designers and analysts have many questions, including: “Do we need to model every copper feature in the board in detail, or can we use lumped parameter models?”

In this webinar, we will explore Ansys simulation solutions for modeling PCBs and identify which techniques are best-suited for a particular problem. These techniques include detailed trace modeling, trace mapping, reinforcements and lumped material models. Some simulation solutions may require using a hybrid of two or more techniques to get the best results without losing accuracy. We will also discuss how in-development techniques will help revolutionize PCB modeling.

6 Ways to Reduce A&D Program Risk

Mentor, A Siemens business

This presentation describes how a development environment (in Aerospace & Defence) employing a complete digital twin of the platform electrical system reduces program risk. It discusses the importance of employing a mature and fully functional, multi-domain digital thread to enrich the digital twin throughout the platform’s lifecycle: from definition, through design, into production and throughout its operating life for sustainment. It covers the role that automation and reuse play in reducing electrical system implementation risk. Finally, it explains how validation techniques with direct, continuous access to the electrical system digital twin can be applied to reduce integration and compliance risk. Those adopting this approach also accrue productivity advantages across the domains of the electrical discipline. Furthermore, they often reduce their cost of quality, achieving functional and compliant first articles with fewer design/integration/production iterations. Many also find that their need for costly ECOs is vastly reduced. However, these are all collateral benefits, subordinate to the ability to de-risk their programs and achieve their expected end.
