Static electricity, also known as electrostatic discharge (ESD), is an electrical charge at rest, it builds and looks for somewhere to go. The discharge can cause three types of damage: catastrophic, latent and upset failure. Lightning is probably the most recognizable effect of static electricity. Generating millions and millions of volts, and we all know […]

Scrap everything you know about creating strong passwords and do this instead…

September 11, 2017  12:49 pm

You know the drill: make a password with a hodgepodge of special characters, numbers, and letters, then change it periodically – or just ignore change alerts until a hacking scandal suddenly arises. You may want to rethink your strategy. Bill Burr, the man behind how we commonly think of devising passwords, recently told The Wall […]

3D Printing Meets PCB’s

  11:25 am

Open any magazine and it’s clear that applications for 3D printing are exploding. Yet one area that remains largely unexplored is the use of additive manufacturing for electronics. The convergence of electronics and 3D printing will have staggering implications for the electronics industry—particularly around printed circuit boards and rapid prototyping.   Not surprisingly, the 3D […]
