In modern highly compacted electronic devices, safety in operation is increasingly threatened by excessively high temperatures. As a rule, thermal fuses are used to counter this risk. But only in combination with a shunt resistor is it possible to provide a fail-proof protection.
Every new application design requires a microcontroller or microprocessor. And when making a decision between the two, there are a few factors to consider. An overview of the microprocessor and the microcontroller, and heterogeneous architectures.
The one thing worse than a buzzing mosquito is its bite – and those affected know that the itching is enough to drive one almost insane. Up to now, most remedies have focussed on alleviating the itchiness. However, a start-up company has now developed a wristband that prevents mosquitoes from biting in the first place.
