If you have ever populated a PCB with lots of SMD components by hand, you know how frustrating and time-consuming it can be. Thankfully, when its time to move into production we employ special robots called “pick and place” machines to do the job for us, and while these robots are capable of placing very small components very accurately at an incredibly fast pace, they are still limited in how small the components it can place are. This has become an issue recently because as technol ...
Arm will offer support for custom instructions for their ARMv8-M embedded CPUs targeted at embedded and IoT applications. (Image credit: Arm)   During this year’s TechCon event in Santa Fe, Arm announced it would start supporting custom instructions for their ARMv8-M series of CPUs, beginning with their Arm Cortex-M33 cores. The announcement means that customers will be able to write their own custom instructions to optimize specific cases for embedded and IoT applications.   A ...
(Image credit: AlexanderAIUS via Wikipedia)   Graphene is one of the world’s most robust materials even though its only 1-atom thick, and coupled with its highly conductive nature, one of the most sought out materials for a myriad of applications, including electronics, semiconductors, and super-strong composites. It’s been 15 years since Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov isolated the substance using a lump of graphite and some tape, and according to Graphene Flagship, the ma ...
