Personalized Healthcare Calls for Innovative Wearables and Medical Devices

Because the world population is aging, chronic diseases are on the rise and healthcare costs are reaching unsustainable heights, it is essential to detect pathologies early. The Internet of Things (IoT) is now poised to transform the healthcare industry by providing wireless connectivity and sensing. Body-worn electronics and implanted devices, equipped with tiny sensors that continuously monitor vital parameters and securely report anomalies to appropriate physicians, will improve patients’ quality of life while delivering timely medical help. Personalized healthcare is making medicine participatory, personalized, predictive and preventive (P4 Medicine). Medical device and high-tech companies are joining forces to satisfy a growing demand that might reach 20 billion medical connected devices by 2020. Successful medical device and pharmaceutical companies are using engineering simulation to develop systems that ensure high reliability, provide data privacy and achieve regulatory compliance quickly. Learn how platform-based engineering simulation maximizes the IoT opportunities for personalized medicine.

The Ins and Outs of Spaceflight Passive Components and Assemblies

RF and microwave components deployed in space flight applications can experience hundreds of degrees of temperature variation, massive amounts of radiation, and can be expected to operate at an elevated level for sometimes decades. The demands of operating in a space environment bring many unique challenges and unforgiving reliability requirements; therefore, designing passive components to meet these rigorous operation criteria necessitates a high level of design expertise, qualifications/certifications, and testing capability.

How the Automotive and Ground Transportation Industry is Accelerating with Pervasive Engineering Simulation

Consumers are demanding efficient, reliable, safe, environmentally friendly, smarter, connected and increasingly autonomous vehicles. Regulators continue to demand improvements in safety and emissions. The automotive industry must deliver these increasingly complex products to market faster, in the face of increasing competition from traditional sources, new geographies and new entrants and with continued pressure to reduce cost. Failure of any magnitude can result in significant, and even irreparable, financial and brand impact.

Fiber Optic Rotary Joints Add a Spin to Sensing, Mobile, and Robotic Fiber Systems

To the passing optical signals, fiberoptic rotary joints (FORJs) are nothing more than fiber connectors, which provide connection between one or multiple fibers. Their unrestricted ability to rotate, however, gives them a critical role in many sensing, mobile, and robotic fiber systems such as ROVs (remotely operated vehicles), aerostat radars, submarines, satellite antennae, OCT (optical coherence tomography), mining vehicles, cranes, wind turbines, robotic vehicles, broadcasting (mobile cameras), etc. This article discusses some of the applications where optical rotary joints are indispensable.

DO-254 Benefits Versus Costs

DO-254, the design assurance guideline for airborne electronic hardware, is considered by many to be a simple cut/paste of DO-178, its avionics software sibling. Surely, as with wine and beer, both are fermented liquids which become increasingly expensive with increased complexity. While similarities abound, so do their many differences. And truly, DO-254 is the benefactor, or bane, of avionics projects the world over. But is DO-254 really unduly expensive? Does it add value? Will it improve safety and reliability? Does it have benefits? What are the true costs versus benefits? These important questions are answered herein.

Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility

By definition, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) describes the ability of a system, a piece of equipment, or some other electrical device that utilizes electromagnetic energy, to operate in its intended environment without suffering an unacceptable degradation in its performance, or negatively impacting the ability of another device to perform its intended function.
