Many electronics engineers create board level products, but their boards are integrated into systems at some point. And systems need things like enclosures, power supplies and environmental management.

New Electronics recognises the importance of system design and its impact on the final product. In this section, New Electronics reviews the latest developments in system design and brings visitors to the website information on how these developments are being applied.

Sytem Design Technology News | New Electronics

Early in 2018, a crime surfaced in the US that earned the name ATM ”jackpotting”. Perpetrators would target older cash machines and switch their hard drives. The malware they store simply hands over cash to thieves armed with the right codes. It is just one of a range of hardware-level attacks that are now coming to the fore.

Sytem Design Technology News | New Electronics

The system-on-chip (SoC) is arguably the biggest misnomer of today’s electronics industry. The core integrated circuit may well have onboard much of the logic circuitry needed to support the needs of the final system. But to get that SoC to function, the manufacturer of the final system needs to surround it with a host of support components, from power management to passives.

A failure to observe even the most basic of security best practices is threatening to derail the IoT

10/09/2018

Sytem Design Technology News | New Electronics

IoT security is notoriously lax leading to headline grabbing attacks that seed fear among consumers and threaten adoption. Typically, only nine percent of vendor budgets go on security implementation and testing. Even if we allow for the fact this low figure may be due to security being outsourced, it’s clear that security is too often, a secondary consideration with production and time-to-market dictating spend.
