Many industries need electronics that can operate reliably in harsh environments, including extremely high temperatures. Traditionally, engineers had to rely on active or passive cooling when designing electronics that must function outside of normal temperature ranges, but cooling may not be possible in some applications, or its high cost and low reliability may make it undesirable in others.
The controller area network (CAN) serial-bus topology allows devices and microcontrollers to communicate with each other without a host computer. Featuring arbitration-free transmission, it places a controller and a host processor at each device node, eliminating the more complex wiring harness that would be necessary to interconnect devices with a host computer.
Recent advances in technology have enabled many innovations in the healthcare industry. Challenges for healthcare equipment include developing new diagnostic methods, simplifying remote monitoring and home healthcare, improving quality and reliability, and enhancing flexibility. Capacitance-to-digital converter technology brings high-performance capacitance sensing to healthcare applications.
