December 2014 Wireless implants used to kill bacterial infection From warm to cool white: colourtemperature tunable LEDs 25 25 DESIGN & PRODUCTS SPECIAL FOCUSES: - TEST & MEASUREMENT Adapting test strategies to IoT The internet of things (IoT) brings with it the ability to build more flexible and responsive control systems, but also raises a number of issues for effective validation and verification. Wideband systems for RF signal capture and analysis Radio signals are all around us. With so many transmitters, both satellite and ground-based, there’s a growing need for monitoring. 26 28 - INTERCONNECTS Enhancing network security with physical layer management Infrastructure and network security systems are fine as far as they go, but they don’t provide visibility into the state of the physical network. 32 - MEDICAL ELECTRONICS Tiny tattoos sense health Research into nanosensors is bearing fruit at the University of California San Diego. Researchers at the University’s Center for Wearable Sensors have prototypes for several tiny, inexpensive sensors fit for the skin that target a variety of medical uses. Shrinking silicon integrated passives for implantable heart monitors Size, weight, reliability and lifetime are all important when developing electronic medical devices. And the job includes passive components. 36 38 Reader offer This month, Arrow Electronics is giving away ten BeMicro Max 10 FPGA evaluation boards together with an integrated USB-Blaster, each package worth 90 Euros, for EE Times Europe’s readers to win. 46 distri bution corner opinion Catcher drones to geo-fence industrial sites What is Design-to-Cost and why does it matter? 4 50 ne ws & TECHNOLOGY Korea, France join forces on driverless cars R&D Communications become mission-critical Vicor powers after higher volume applications Patrizio Vinciarelli is one of the longest serving CEOs in electronics, having founded Vicor in 1981 and led the company ever since. Consumers have a say at Cartes This year, the CARTES Secure Connexions exhibition was hosting a Start-up Challenge, offering new players to pitch their business cases and product ideas, with a 10,000 euros check for the winner. Software has the last word for PIN entry No-lag turbo, virtual car key: Valeo drives automotive industry French automotive supplier Valeo S.A. stepped into the limelight by introducing its developments and R&D activities to the press at the Hockenheim racetrack. Murata succumbs to IoT temptation Murata has been quietly reinforcing its sensor division to expand its offering into higher revenue-generating fields such as medical electronics, home automation and automotive electronics, with an IoT twist to it.
