How PCBs are made – the basics

The PCB manufacturing is important step towards successful build of electronic equipment. The quality of device, smooth operation may be influenced by printed circuit board – if it is well built, device works as planned, and if it has flaws then it may bring some deviations from normal operation. Anyway there are billions of electronic devices around the globe and all of them use PCBs as basis for circuits. Earlier devices were larger, used lots of through-hole components, but today in modern world electronics is very miniature and dense, thus PCBs become much more complex requiring more and thinner tracks, more layers and should work on high frequencies. So not only PCB designer has tough task, but also a PCB manufacturer should be able to follow the trends. But despite… Continue reading

DIY: Using Drones to Sell Your Home

The technology used in real estate follows the same patterns you would see in any other field. The tools used in the field advance and evolve in order to provide new and exciting opportunities. Drones have become the newest up and coming development that have changed the way we approach photography and videography. In an industry that thrives on online presentation and marketing, the more advanced the photography techniques the better. Real estate businesses that invest in drones are seeing a large payoff when they are able to present homes in a manner that provides their customers with incredibly detailed views of a home. Professional real estate companies are able to use drone services as a selling point for their services due to how important their use has become to… Continue reading

Modern Legal Tech Platforms That Can Change A Law Firm

Technology advances at a fast rate right now, affecting the way in which every single industry does business. Law practice is no different. Close to all legal work aspects are being impacted. The law firms that oppose updating practices are exposed to the huge risk of quickly being surpassed by the competition. According to Joshua Harshberger, the best thing he ever did was to accept using new technology and the truth is that every legal practice should do the same. There are numerous tech apps and platforms that can be used these days. Those mentioned below just stand out as being the most popular. You can always conduct your own research and see what the best pick for your business is. Diligen This software offers a really easy-to-use user interface… Continue reading

Virtual entertainment

Personal pocket computer  Over the past years, technology has progressed exponentially. We no longer need bulky computers to stay connected with other people via internet or play video-games. With each new generation, computer hardware has become smaller and more powerful to the point in which we can carry all the processing power of an entire personal computer in our pocket. Our thirst for better and more powerful hardware has led to rapid innovations in computing and communication technologies. Adapting with new technology In today’s society, whether we like it or not, we spend most of our time in the virtual world. The emergence of the internet has transformed our society, from the way we do business, to the way we communicate and process information. Continue reading

Can Blockchain Be Used To Enhance Embedded Systems?

As things currently stand, there’s a strong case to be made that blockchain frameworks are not a good fit with embedded systems, small controlling and operating mechanisms designed for a specific purpose and existing within a much larger electrical or mechanical system. Sure, in theory, blockchain could thrive as a part of a larger mechanical or electrical structure, but miniature devices are supposed to work with limited computing power and battery. Anything battery-powered and low-cost will simply not have the processing capability to run a blockchain-based infrastructure. However, that does not mean the potential isn’t there. Let’s assume for a moment that the Bitcoin’ POW mechanism power issue could be circumvented and consider what blockchain could offer to an embedded system. It enables a verified, immutable record of actions across… Continue reading
