While studying electrical engineering, I learned early on that electricity doesn’t really work like everyone thinks. Here are four things you probably didn’t know about electric current.
Product Development Tips
Our Engineering Process
The first thing to understand about the engineering process is that it is iterative. You don’t simply run through the process and then go straight to production. Each iteration works out problems and yields a better product. It usually takes at least a few iterations to get to a design that is ready for a small production run then a couple more iterations to scale up.
Choosing the Right Solder
The choice of the right type of solder for electronics projects and PCB prototyping is actually an easy one despite there being hundreds of options. There are three things you need to look at:
Introduction to IPC-A-610
An early Christmas gift arrived at Stratify Labs today: the latest revision of the IPC-A-610 standard. At Stratify Labs, we like to stay up to date with the most current industry guidelines for building and designing electronic assemblies. PCB design plays a big part in ensuring a smooth transition from prototyping to production and long term reliability.
U2F Excitement then Disappointment
I recently ordered a pair of U2F authentication keys from Amazon. I was very excited about my move to nearly unbreakable security on Gmail, Dropbox, Github, and other services. Individuals and businesses should be flocking to U2F and similar technologies to secure their data and prevent embarrassing and costly security breaches.
