Ergonomics is a topic that is discussed far less than needed. It’s easy to pass off ergonomic design as a luxury, and one that the industrial workplace can’t afford.

Managing a Thermal Budget

By Peter Vowell

When electrical devices are running, they consume energy to perform a certain task. But when devices utilize that electrical energy, they convert much of it into a different form - heat. The IoT and wireless revolution has pushed devices to become smaller than ever, making heat management even more important. Without a properly managed thermal budget, modern...
