November 2014 UHF RFID tags ready up for analogue sensing and data sharing UHF RFID systems have been widely deployed in supply chain and logistics applications. The innovation in this industry comes in the way of value added services. Bluetooth beacons not precise enough, says BeSpoon 26 27 - POWER SUPPLIES Increasing power density in welding machines The demand for portable low cost welding machines, especially in developing countries, is increasing. Some solutions for welding machines in the 1.5kW to 6kW power range. Power supply for mobile devices Mobile devices rely on an independent power source. Making the right design decisions. Making the most of the coming boom in micro-generation equipment In the field of domestic microgeneration of renewable energy, the fog is clearing. Fighting the fake using algorithmic security Battery counterfeiting is increasingly becoming a global problem. The question is not whether you own any counterfeits, but how many. 30 34 36 38 - MOTOR CONTROL & DRIVES The Issus, the strainwave and the cameraman MEMS inertial sensors provide the equilibrium sense to your car With the new SMI7 inertial sensor family, Bosch introduces a new sensor generation which detects the state of motion in a car with a new level of performance. 42 44 Reader offer This month, Cherry gives away five of its Energy Harvesting Evaluation kits, worth just over 266 Euros each, for EETimes Europe’s readers to win. The required RF-energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch and the data is transmitted wirelessly using RF-technology. 46 distribution corner opinion IoT cybersecurity: is EDA ready to deliver? The sounds of silence in the car 4 50 news & TECHNOLOGY “New” MEMS evolution coming, predicts Yole Can Big-data solution free EVs from range anxiety? Samtec Expands Line Of Rugged Micro Interconnect Products A breeding ground for French startups When the steering wheel is a computer At 24 hours of Le Mans, so-called Le Mans Prototypes compete against each other through driving skills, engine power, and an impressive amount of electronic controls. Fraunhofer ENAS shrinks 2D e-compasses Offering an order of magnitude better sensitivity than Hall-based magnetic field sensors while about a hundred times smaller, Fraunhofer ENAS develop monolithically integrated 2D Spin-valve sensor . Cree patent integrates LED and OLED technologies Beyond programmability, full design observability at runtime Startup creates virtual cores Two former Intel engineers who faced the power wall that ended frequency scaling are describing their startup’s technology that hopes to surmount it. Consortium focuses on digital power solutions 6 6 8 10 16 18 18 20 22 22 DESIGN & PRODUCTS SPECIAL FOCUSES: - M2M COMMUNICATIONS NFC and IoT: a marriage of costeffectiveness and security So what are these ‘Things’? They’re cars, domestic appliances, industrial machines, TVs, set-top boxes, and perhaps even LED lamps that you can switch on-and-off from anywhere in the world. 24 49 3 Electronic Engineering Times Europe November 2014 www.electronics-eetimes.com
