All About Flex: Flexible Circuits and Man-Made Satellites
The first satellite was launched by the USSR in 1957. The U.S. successfully launched its first satellite, Explorer 1, in 1958 while announcing the intention to “win” the race to outer space. Today satellites serve many vital purposes.


Ventec Shares Their Insights on the Laminate Market, Part I
I-Connect007’s Barry Matties sat down with the COO of Ventec USA/Europe, Mark Goodwin, to discuss the laminate market as a whole, the market segments behind that growth, and how Ventec has positioned itself in the thermal management space.


Fault-Finding: It’s All About Prevention, not Blame
There are thousands of things that can go wrong during the design and manufacture of a PCB assembly. One might say that it is an absolute miracle when a PCB goes through all of its phases—design, fabrication and assembly—and operates successfully. But there are some management and customer cultures who naively attempt to resolve problems by seeking out the culprits and shouting “Off with their heads!”

Dormant, Yet Always-Alert Sensor Awakes Only in the Presence of a Signal of Interest
Here’s your task. Build a tiny sensor that detects a signature of infrared (IR) wavelengths characteristic of a hot tailpipe, a wood fire, or perhaps even a human being. Design the sensor so that it can remain dormant and unattended but always alert, even for years, without drawing on battery power.


BAE Systems Engineers Develop Novel Technology to Protect Pilots from Laser Attacks
BAE Systems engineers have developed a low cost, lightweight, flexible system that can block dangerous laser light, protecting pilots and flight crew from hostile attacks.


DARPA Rolls Out Electronics Resurgence Initiative
Transformative advances in electronics to come from a combo of six new programs, a portfolio of existing ones, and the country’s largest funding program for basic university research in electronics.

Innovation Could Mean Flexible Batteries for Pacemakers
Experts at Queen’s University Belfast have designed a flexible and organic alternative to the rigid batteries that power-up medical implants. Currently, devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators are fitted with rigid and metal based batteries, which can cause patient discomfort.


Medicine of the Future: New Microchip Technology Could Be Used to Track Smart Pills
Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in "smart pills" to diagnose and treat diseases. A key to the new technology—and what makes it unique among other microscale medical devices—is that its location can be precisely identified within the body, something that proved challenging before.


Purdue Researchers Create Device to Identify Risks for Breast Cancer
The device, known as risk-on-a-chip, is a small plastic case with several thin layers and an opening for a piece of paper where researchers can place a portion of tissue. This tiny environment produces risk factors for cancer and mimics what happens in a living organism.
