In a recent visit to Hannover Messe exhibition, US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were given a demonstration of Germ  an IoT technology and a taste of Industrie 4.0 by Harting on its stand at the exhibition. The President and Chancellor were shown the Rinspeed “Etos” car which uses a MICA mini industrial computer as the neural interface between Cloud and machine which enables the systems and machines to function as part of the IoT. Etos was created by the group best known for building zero-emission aquatic cars, robot-driven EVs and shape-shifting smartphone controlled carriers.

While driving at night with your headlights off is a serious offense that could have catastrophic consequences, what if the person driving wasn’t you? What if it’s not a person at all? Ford Motor company have been testing autonomous vehicles getting their bearings during the night without any lights. If that sounds like science fiction to you that’s because at one point it was unfathomable that cars could even be autonomous but with the advent of technology and the massive funding and interest pouring in from the public for the ultimate convenience, cars that can drive themselves and passengers, are starting to become a reality.

On May 6th 2016, Richard Wilson released an article on Electronics Weekly talking about how Intel i3 processors will be scaling for embedded modules that are COM. Intel has created and designed the XMC module that will come with an envelope that is conduction cooled. This Conduction cooled envelope is appropriate for carriers that are considered either open standard or custom. This includes carriers such as VPX and VME.

Printed Circuit Boards are primarily designed to mechanically support and connect electronic components electrically thus making them a fundamental part of almost all electronic systems. PCBs are also crucial for thermal management by acting as a heat sink. This allows transfer of heat away from the high-powered components that are likely to overheat as a result of overworking.
