Community members are encouraged to participate in a wearable electronics Halloween costume competition

Chicago – October 18, 2021: element14, an Avnet community, is encouraging their community members to take their Halloween costumes to the next level by incorporating wearable electronics into the designs with ‘Nightmare on e14 Street’.

Community members can participate in this spooky competition by building a wearable Halloween costume featuring electronics and blogging about it on now through November 8. Everyone who enters the competition and blogs about their wearable electronics costume will receive a Nightmare on e14 Street horror movie-style poster.

“We have seen some amazing wearable costumes and cosplays over the years on the element14 Community,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media at element14. “We’re excited to see how community members will incorporate wearable technology in the design of their creative costumes this year.”

Community members are encouraged to think creatively, build something unique and share blog posts with high-quality videos and photos. The best wearable electronics costume will win an ultimate horror movie fright-night-in, including a home popcorn machine, a scratchable top 100 horror movies poster, and a collection of classic horror movie Blu-Rays. The winner will be announced on November 15.

Utilizing the Benefits of Coupled Inductors

Sponsored by Analog Devices

In a multiphase design, coupled inductors offer many advantages compared to discrete inductors including current ripple cancellation, improved transient performance, higher inductor current saturation, smaller inductor size, output capacitance and improved overall efficiency performance. This application note highlights how the benefit of current ripple cancellation can be traded for either smaller size or higher efficiency, depending on design specifications.

Mission Critical Electrical Controls

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Littelfuse

If you are working on a mission-critical design, there is a very important list of requirements that you will need to consider for your electromechanical controls including how well they have been tested, availability of inventory, and the quality of the components. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with John Saathoff from Littelfuse electromechanical solutions offered by Hartland Controls, the benefits Hartland brings to the table when it comes to mission-critical designs, and how you can get started using Hartland Controls for your next design.
