displays sort by issue
Avionics - a term coined from the merging of aviation and electronics - deals with all electronic devices and systems that perform specific individual functions on aircraft, satellites and spacecraft.
The IEC regularly endorses key global and regional industry events.
Over the past few months, the Standardization Management Board (SMB) nominated several new chairs for different IEC technical committees (TCs).
Printed electronics is a relatively new technology, but it has already proven a disruptive, yet creative process that allows the production of new products and components, low-cost electronic devices, which open the way to a range of new applications. It has started transforming the electronics industry and many other domains by being included in different manufacturing processes. This new technology led to the creation, in 2011, of IEC Technical Committee (TC) 119: Printed electronics.
Printed electronics as a manufacturing method has become established in a number of areas across the electrotechnical world. The connections that are made are emerging as particularly significant in the new generation of wearable electronic devices. Although some wearable applications can be realized using wholly conventional rigid electronics, many will require some element of flexibility. Standardization work by a number of IEC Technical Committees (TCs) and subcommittees (SCs) is central to this development.
The quest for better television pictures has been ongoing ever since TV was invented and in particular after it started reaching a wider audience. The second edition of an International Standard for Organic LED (OLED) displays adds to a series that will contribute to better image quality on these displays.
There are a number of technologies supporting the development and further implementation of photovoltaic (PV) devices. International Standards developed by several IEC Technical Committees (TCs) and Subcommittees (SCs) in the barrier layer assemblies and printed electronics domains underpin this implementation.
The IEC regularly supports key global and regional industry events, which can present the IEC endorsement on their website and materials.
Sensors provide information about objects, or people and their environment. Networks of sensors in the shape of wearable electronics and integrated into the living environment will support Active Assisted Living (AAL) into the future. Sensors and printed electronics will be increasingly integrated into smart wearable devices to facilitate the implementation of AAL.
Initially developed for military and subsequently gaming scenarios, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications have found their way into many industries, which are enhancing their products and services through innovative technology.
The e-book and its tablet form have come a long way since the first digital devices were announced. The original models were greeted with a fair amount of skepticism. There was doubt concerning proprietary software that might constrain the choice of model or reading titles, and a possible lack of connectivity that would prevent widespread use. Now, all of that seems to be changing, and the original skepticism has given way to enthusiasm and a multitude of new developments.
