    Overcoming Ethernet connectivity challenges on the power grid

    Traditionally, the power grid consisted of stand-alone equipment working independently; maintenance was a manual process using paper-based inspection and reporting. As equipment like protection relays, circuit breakers and smart meters became digital, using control cables to share equipment status and fault and control data helped utilities optimize...

    Designing compact, efficient and high performing multiparameter patient monitors

    Continuous measurement of patient vital signs like heart rate, respiration rate and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) is crucial for effective care, and the ability to measure those simultaneously makes multiparameter patient monitors increasingly important. Electronic patient monitors use noninvasive sensors attached to patients to collect and display...

    Getting the most out of your power stage at the full temperature range – part 1

    When designing a power stage for motor control, you can drive down the total system cost if you make special considerations regarding efficiency. This includes optimizing the field-effect transistor, switch node and control algorithms. During design, you will need to protect the system against an over temperature condition. Over temperature means that...

    Security versus functional safety: a view from the Processor Software Development Kit

    What is the difference between security and functional safety? At its core, the difference between security and functional safety can be summed up in one word – intent. Security protects against threats from malicious intent. Functional safety on the other hand protects against hazards from malfunction, the cause (or intent) of which may or...
