Semiconductor-Shortage-electronics-industry-issue

Can Industry escape the damages of the chip shortage, and benefit the planet at the same time?

It is common knowledge in the electronics and manufacturing industries that the ongoing covid pandemic has caused an acute shortage of electronic component chips on an unprecedented global scale. The demand for semiconductor chips has been increasing year by year as the world has rapidly embraced the digitalised future. Can Industry escape the damages of the chip shortage, and benefit the planet at the same time?

ABI Labs RevEng Edition – Tutorial

In this second episode of ABI Labs RevEng Edition, we will show you how ABI’s reverse engineering system #RevEng works, the ins and out of the RevEng instrument, how to set it up, how to create a new project and generate the netlist and finally, how to import it into a CAD software to draw the schematic.

Phantom Fault In RSS Drill Heads

The subject of this case study is a company we’ll call IDS, short for “in deep ship.” IDS is the designer and manufacturer of RSS drill heads for offshore oil drilling. Prior to finding ABI and BoardMaster, IDS was having a problem with their RSS drill heads. Deep under the seabed, something was causing a fault in the transmission from the drill head. Without a drill head location signal, drill rig operators were forced to pull the drill.

Turning Electronic Waste into Gold – The Solution to ‘E-Waste Guilt’? 

The Royal Mint has revealed plans to build a “world-first” plant in South Wales to recover gold from UK electronic waste. The pioneering facility will help address the growing environmental issue of E-Waste, alongside fostering invaluable skills in Britain’s job market When complete in 2023, the new venture will support about 40 jobs. Although the Royal Mint recycling plant is an exciting prospect for many, it does not address the root of the issue – why are we wasting electronics rather than repairing them?
