Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of TBMG: Advances in Wearable Technologies

Wearable devices are gaining widespread use in industries such as medical, military/defense, and consumer products. These devices range from passive monitors and diagnostic systems to complex surveillance devices. One area where great strides are currently being made are robotic prosthetics and powered exoskeleton bionic devices to help people with severe disabilities live more normal lives. As the technologies incorporated in these wearables – including sensors and electronics – become increasingly more complex, design engineers must learn how best to package and integrate them for maximum comfort, durability, and efficiency.

Core Competencies Staying Competitive in the Medical Device Industry

Outsourcing helps medical companies fill proficiency gaps and keep pace with innovation. This whitepaper explains what factors are driving the growth in the medical device industry, and how these market dynamics have led to an increased demand for outsourcing of noncore OEM competencies and processes to reliable partners. It will present the many ways outsourcing can help OEMs minimize technology investments and integration efforts to accelerate time-to-market and increase their ROI. The attributes required in an ideal outsourcing partner are also discussed.

Selecting the Right Standard High-Voltage Power Supply

High-voltage power supplies drive a broad range of applications across diverse segments, including semiconductor, scientific, medical, industrial, and more. Designed to deliver stable supply voltages at 50 V and up, the power supplies, comprised of sophisticated components and specialized materials, must carefully manage the high voltages and associated effects, for example, corona and arcing. For systems developers choosing standard high-voltage power supplies, the specialized nature of high-voltage power calls for a power supply selection process that reflects the unique characteristics of the high- voltage power supply and its operation.

Virtual Hardware ECU: How to Significantly Increase Testing Throughput

In Conjunction with SAE

Both the complexity and software content of automotive electronic systems are increasing rapidly. At the same time, the demand for more software and system testing is growing. This need is being driven by requirements from the ISO 26262 standard and the necessity to reduce software-driven recalls, which have been significantly rising over the past few years.

Applying Wiring Harness Changes Without Damaging Your Electric System Design Flow

When an engineering change must be made to a wiring harness—and let’s face it, there is always going to be late-stage changes—it means you will make a change in multiple design steps. This Tech Talk discusses the challenges of applying changes and how to better handle them. For example, you might need to change an electric component that drives more current than the previous one. A change such as this can cause issues throughout your design flow: System Design, Wiring Design, and the Harness Design. The resulting inconsistencies lead to poor quality and prevent you from achieving your design cycle goals.

Key Considerations for Powertrain HIL Test

Safety, availability, and cost considerations can make performing thorough tests of embedded control devices using the complete system impractical. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is a real-time test technique used to test these devices more efficiently. During HIL test, the physical system that interfaces to an embedded control device is simulated on real-time hardware, and the outputs of the simulator mimic the actual output of the physical system. The embedded controller “thinks” it is in a real system. HIL simulation meticulously tests embedded control devices in a virtual environment before proceeding to real-world tests of the complete system. This application note covers recommended best practices for powertrain HIL testing.
