Everything you need to know about the lightning and radio frequency bonding requirements in military and aerospace standards (and nothing you don’t!)
Secure facility designs often comingle ICS/ICD-705 and NSA 94-106 design requirements, creating project confusion with significant design and cost implications. This article focuses on bringing some clarity to the differences between ICS/ICD-705 design guidance and NSA 94-106 performance requirements. The related secure facility design and construction process is also reviewed.
Compliance requirements for cellular devices that connect to the mobile phone networks in Australia are similar to those in other countries but with some important differences. In this article, we detail the unique aspects of ACMA technical regulations.
In this article, we detail the key changes between MIL-STD-464C and MIL-STD-464D, the recently-released update to the standard.
Are you a new safety manager shopping power converters and wondering about the features listed under the functional safety section? Or are you a seasoned design and release engineer looking to start on a new ISO 26262 module? Either way, this article offers guidance in applying functional safety concepts to your next automotive design.
This article discusses and contextualizes the EU Conflict Minerals Regulation for the electronics sector. While electrical equipment manufacturers that place products on the EU market are not specifically targeted under the Regulation, the law applies to them if their operations involve importing conflict-implicated metals and minerals into the EU (e.g., for use in manufacturing their products). Regardless, the Regulation raises implications for any electrical equipment manufacturer that distributes and sells products in the EU, specifically when it comes to publicly reporting on uses of conflict minerals. The EU’s proposed “transparency platform” is detailed in this regard.
Standards play a critical role in enabling new technologies to go mainstream faster while freeing customers to choose best-of-breed solutions from multiple vendors. Here’s what vendors need to know about why and how to participate in standards-related processes, including conformity assessment activities.
The use of robots and robotics is becoming more common across many industries. As these devices become more common and their use grows, manufacturers must understand the hazards they present, regulatory requirements, and testing options.
