J VanDomelen In a previous life, I was a DJ and the lasers were one of my favorite parts of the nightclub (aside from the music). I have always been enamored by these amazing devices that shoot coherent beams of light out of them. LASER is an acronym meaning Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation and what many may not know is the predecessor of the laser was the MASER, which means Microwave Amplification … Read More

J VanDomelen It is hard to imagine, but even modern aircraft rely on relatively old power switching technology. The electrical distribution unit (EDU) is the first or primary piece of equipment that distributes power on aircraft after it is produced from the generators. Current technologies used in these systems are electromechanical, meaning a piece of conductor physically has to move to make or break connections … Read More

John Day Have you ever been stuck in traffic and envied the motorcyclist who can ride between lanes? It would be nice to be able to do that, but motorcycles are not for everyone. They can tip over rather easily, and don’t protect riders from the elements. On the other hand, they are quite efficient at transporting one or two people from point A to point B.

Harry Foster I’ve always loved the Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Yet, why merely settle for fish when you can have sushi! My point is, to remain strategically relevant in today’s competitive landscape, it is necessary to constantly reinvent ourselves and evolve our technical skills. To that end, we have created the Verification … Read More

J VanDomelen ESC is always the best place to see the latest and greatest in embedded electronics here in the states. When touring the ESC exhibit floor, I am always interested, and sometimes amazed, to see how much the form factors of printed circuit boards (PCBs), connectors, and myriad other components have shrunk, and this year was no different.
