    Electromagnetic disturbances can have serious consequences for functional safety, even where the European Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD) has been fully complied with something not generally appreciated by design engineers and their managers. The EMCD is solely concerned with preventing technical barriers to trade in the EU single market and cannot properly deal with EMC-related fun... View full abstract»

    Standby mode is a convenient but extremely wasteful feature of many electronics products. The authors describe how the GreenChip family is helping to produce a more environmentally friendly switched mode power supply. The new ICs implement an extensive set of power management functions focused on improving the efficiency of the standard flyback supply in standby mode. They achieve this by introduc...

    Electromagnetic compatibility is becoming an important element in the design of virtually all equipment and systems connected to an electrical supply. Contemporary design practice is increasingly reliant on the use of computer-based tools to realise the maximum degree of automation in the design process. This trend is set to continue. Furthermore, in the design of complex systems, interactions bet... View full abstract»

    Electronic engineering has been changing at a furious pace, as has the education system that struggles to supply the trained persons needed. The author examines some exciting developments and points to some areas where major change seems generally overdue. Some clear messages emerge from this discussion of electrical engineering education and training: the first degree provides at best an overview... View full abstract»
