FUTURE: Quantum Computing Coming Faster Than You Think
From cybersecurity to drug discovery, there are several challenges that quantum computing can tackle better than classical systems. With improving hardware, full-stack solutions, better algorithms, simulators, and cloud offerings, the technology is at present in ‘democratisation’ phase. Perhaps it is time to make your quantum plans too

TRENDS: Customised Accelerators For Domain-Specific Computing Using FPGAs
There is always room for improvement in the world of technology. But it can only be improved and never perfected. System processors have seemingly come a long way, arguably even peaked. Let us if that is really the case or not
FUTURE: The Quantum Ecosystem Of The Future
It will still take about a decade for quantum computing technology to be a part of our daily lives. Nevertheless, one of the most active areas of research and development nowadays is quantum computing. That’s because the adoption of quantum processing units (QPUs) for both application-specific and general-purpose computing is likely as they develop from being just simple scientific testbeds to reliable devices
TRENDS: Economical IoT Sensors For The Developing World
Technology brings convenience and efficiency in our lives, so it is should be made accessible to everyone at the most affordable cost possible. Let us take a look at the progress that has been made in developing the most affordable IoT sensors that there are
INTERVIEW: “In Another Six Months The Battery Problem Will Be Behind Us And We Will See More 2-Wheeler EVs On The Road” — Suresh Kamath, Managing Director, Avnet India
The above statement was amongst many that left a lasting impression on EFY’s Sharad Bhowmick and Rahul Chopra when they spoke to Suresh Kamath. Suresh is a veteran in the electronics industry who has been dealing with electronification of 2-wheelers since 1996. Here are a few excerpts
GLOBAL: The Significance Of EU’s New Machinery Directive For Industry
According to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, the new machinery Directive 2006/42/EC “aims at the free market circulation on machinery and at the protection of workers and consumers using such machinery. It defines essential health and safety requirements of general application, supplemented by a number of more specific requirements for certain categories of machinery.”
GROWTH: Digitalisation: A Sea Of Endless Opportunities
A semiconductor sits at the heart of any electronic device. Over the last few years this industry has witnessed a boom that is revolutionary in many ways due to the digitalisation of various electronics prospects along with the advancements that one could not have expected a decade ago. Read on to learn more about the same
INTERVIEW: “Marketing That Delivers Intentional Messages To Resonate With Customers Creates The Secret Sauce For Mouser” — Kevin Hess, Senior Vice President - Marketing, Mouser Electronics
After graduating from Penn State University with a degree in business logistics, Kevin Hess never imagined reaching the top echelons of technical marketing at Mouser Electronics, a Top 10 Global Distributor of Electronic Components. But as he puts it, “I’ve learned to love it.” In a recent interview with EFY, Hess, who is senior vice president of marketing at the global authorised semiconductor distributor, opens up about Mouser, marketing and more. Here are some excerpts from the interview
CHIPS: The Relevance Of Hardware In Software-Defined World
The current state of the semiconductor industry worldwide is becoming digital, and semiconductors are the underlying technology powering this innovation. The need for exponentially more computing power is being met through innovations, new discoveries, and disruptions. But with increasing use of software-defined equipment, the importance of underlying hardware cannot be ignored
CIRCUIT: Why Current-Mode Control In Switching Regulators Matters
There are thousands of different switching regulators on the market. Their election is based on specifications such as input voltage range, output voltage capability, maximum output current, and some other parameters. This article explains current mode, a differentiating feature commonly listed in data sheets, and its advantages and disadvantages
CIRCUIT: Li-ion Battery Charger Reference Designs
The main purpose of this article is to help design engineers in selecting the right battery management and charging IC and completing their proof of concept (PoC) phase. The resources provided include schematics, bill of material (BOM), design files, GUI interface software, etc
CIRCUIT IDEA: Simple Low-Cost Inverter
There are different types of inverters available in market, but their circuits are generally complex, so their cost is high. Here is a proposed low-cost inverter circuit based on MOSFET IRF250, which can also be used as an emergency light
PROJECT: A Small String Of Decorative Flashing Lights Using Arduino
During festivals like Diwali, Christmas, and New Year strings of flashing lights are sometimes used to decorate homes and other premises. Arduino based flashing lights can be made with the help of just a few components for such occasions
PROJECT: ESP32 LoRa Gateway For Data Monitoring
In a boiler safety project, we collect 32 thermocouple readings from the depth of a 500MW boiler second pass area, where ambient temperature on a normal day is 65 to 70°C due to hot area leakages in the vicinity. However, the thermocouples need to measure temperatures ranging from 350 to 150°C, depending on their positions
PROJECT: Smart Glasses Like Google Glass Made With OLED Display
Google Glass launched a few years ago looks like normal eyeglasses but it is made of a special glass and has a user interface (UI). It works like a smartphone through which you can see time of the day, check news, read books, and much more; the text appears as an overlay or a floating image in the air. At the same time, you can continue seeing your surroundings, just like you do with an ordinary pair of glasses
PROJECT: Obstacle-Avoiding Autonomous Car Robot Using Arduino
The use of autonomous systems to perform relevant and delicate tasks is fast growing and their application in various fields cannot be over emphasized. But obstacle avoidance is an important task in robotics, as the autonomous robot’s aim is to reach the destination without collisions. One type of autonomous robot that can detect obstacles and edges, and takes alternative paths free of obstacles and edges, is a real-time obstacle avoiding edge detection robot
PROJECT: Handheld Real-Time ECG Measurement System
An electrocardiogram (ECG) acts as the health indicator of our heart. With the help of electrodes, placed either on the chest or at the arms, we can sense the beating of the heart. The signals can be visualised as waveforms on a computer screen or printed on a sheet
