  • Delivering long battery life in tiny devices

    When you wear your earbuds for a long hike or an afternoon at the gym, you don’t want to be interrupted by having to stop and recharge the earpieces. You expect your hearables, wearables, and other tiny, battery powered electronic devices to perform reliably over long periods of time. From a design standpoint, these user expectations are a tall order to meet. The form factor constraints dictate the need for a small Lithium-Ion battery, which must last a long time between charge cycles and be utilized sparingly. Power supplies, in turn, must meet the distinct and diverse voltage requirements of the sub-systems within the design.

  • Simplify power designs with versatile DC-DC converters from TDK that offer unrivalled power density and ease of design

    System power architectures can be very complex with semiconductor devices or subsystems operating from different voltages (1.8V, 3.3V or 5V) with current demands ranging from many amps in to microamps. An increasingly popular approach to this challenge is to employ a Point of Load (POL) power system architecture which allows a single power supply bus of typically 12V to be set up, where the voltage is then stepped down to the correct level locally using POL converters for each subsystem circuit or IC.

    Humans have always sought to make life easier for ourselves – it’s almost what defines us as a species. Part of this is to alleviate ourselves from the mundane tasks of life, from making a pot-stand so it does not have to be held over a fire, to having an automatic out of office reply on your email. As systems became more complex during the industrial revolution there was increased interest in the automatic control of such systems, one of which being the automatic steering of ships.

  • Pushing the Big Button: Finding and Engaging a Partner for Volume Manufacturing

    This fourth article in our series following the progress of a new product from inception to delivery in the marketplace, focuses on the move into volume production. Selecting a partner for this step is a decision that warrants detailed research and your commitment to travel and meet candidate companies to be sure of getting the right team on your side. The partner is likely to carry out the full assembly, not just the PCBA so it is imperative for the hunt to start early in the process. A good time might be the point at which the first design is going to prototype. At this stage, you will have a fair idea what the finished product is going to look like, and hence what manufacturing skills are going to be required. The manufacturing partner for the production volumes would likely be the same as the one chosen for the pre-production volumes, so the decision would need to be made by then. The pre-production batch will also then provide an opportunity to validate the relationship.

  • Waking up from the Maternity Leave dreamland

    Written and illustrated by: Polly Britton Project Engineer, Plextek People sometimes want to know what it’s like being a female engineer, but it’s really just like being a male engineer who goes into a different bathroom. Becoming a mother and primary care giver adds a completely new dimension to the question, though. I just got back from six months of maternity leave, for the second time in my career, and it’s slightly surreal. As more women are encouraged to go into engineering as a field of study and a career, we may soon see more and more women going through this transformation of engineer into mother, and then into an engineer-mother hybrid.

  • Developing Software Defined Radio applications with OpenCPI

    By: Robert Littlejohns Consultant, Plextek Wireless technologies are always evolving and becoming more complex to meet the ever-increasing capacity, reliability and security demands of customers. The most prominent example of this is the ongoing rollout of the 5G mobile phone network. Over time, the 5G standard will improve and gain new features. With the cost of deploying such a network nationwide in the billions of pounds, the ability for a network operator to modify the functionality of their base stations with a software update is very attractive. This can be achieved using Software Defined Radios (SDRs).
