ews/technology-44628399   Long story short, users are seeing video captured from cameras they don't own. Quite pathetic how come the system would allow such a situation to occur so easily - both the hardware and the software ought to have been designed to eliminate this possibility, from using guaranteed unique hardware keys (permanently burned in) to software developed and tested at a significant level commensurate to t ...
I found out this week that Saturday 23rd June is International Women in Engineering Day.   I only see one side of engineering (working in Marketing) which is quite a blinkered view, so I thought I would catch up with our resident female engineer and ask her a few questions about why she chose this as a career.   Meet Courtney Kennedy - Technology Solutions Marketing Manager for Farnell element14   Q.

Engineers face a challenge when presenting the product concept they are building to stakeholders (managers, clients, investors, or board members) who need to understand and approve how it works. Explaining functional aspects of the conceptualized design using simulations, debuggers, or even CAD models often ends up with “can you prove it?” questions at a product concept stage.   Is quite common that engineers struggle with adoption of their proposed ideas as stakeholders want e ...
Stringent high-performance requirements for reliable products are rising design complexity both in hardware and software; because of this, embedded systems are becoming a key differentiating factor for (technological and commercial) success. This demanding need to create robust and complex systems with huge quality, safety and security, in less time and cheaper, is pushing engineers to turn into Model-Based Design (MBD) —a mathematical and visual approach for developing complex control sys ...
The company's open source project development will be beneficial to both Microsoft and Github (image via Github)   Microsoft is buying GitHub for a price valued at $7.5 billion, as announced on Monday. The software-coding sharing platform was last valued at $1.9 billion. The purchase would enable the company to make a turn and head back to where it was a decade ago and maintain itself in a way where it was in its earliest stage.   Microsoft's story first began with the progression of ...
