While there are many different types of trends you can and should reference throughout the new product design and development process including macro, consumer and industry, aesthetic design trends may be some of the harder nuts to crack.
Manufacturers, safety experts and international standards organizations will continue to focus attention on flammable refrigerants as the substitute for environmentally unfriendly compounds face steep reductions in the approaching years and decades.
K-I-S-S. It’s a pneumonic device. Crude but effective, it helps us remember to keep things manageable. But, as we all know, many times the ease or difficulty of a situation is not up to us. Hence, the Cynefin model.

The new PIC24 “GA7” family of microcontrollers (MCU) is now available from Microchip Technology Inc. As the lowest-cost 256 KB Flash memory 16-bit MCUs available today, these PIC24 devices enable extremely cost-effective designs for Internet of Things (IoT) sensor nodes, portable medical devices and industrial control applications.
Sensirion presents the advanced EK-P4 evaluation kit, which simplifies the evaluation of Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors even further. The kit combines all the features required for test measurement, including a flow element, so first measurements can be made cost-effectively and exceptionally quickly.
