EE Catalog, Military & Aerospace - November 2014 By: Chris A. Ciufo, Editor-in-Chief, Embedded; Extension Media Coding for multi-processing HPEC sounds hard, but there are ways to save time and lower risk with slick COTS tools.

GE Bringing Good things - And the Internet of Things - To Life

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the 2014 GE User Summit in Orlando, Fla. It was a worthwhile event with some significant takeaways.

The difference over the past decade,...
