Lane Electronics renews its Cyber Essentials Certification to protect Defence, Motorsport and Industrial customers

Lane Electronics, a leading franchised distributor for many of the industry’s major electrical and electronic connector manufacturers, is pleased to announce it has once again been awarded the industry standard Cyber Essentials Certification. This is a mandatory requirement for companies who supply to the UK Defence Industry and has equal importance for its commercial and motorsport customers.

Cyber Essentials Certification ensures that a high level of cyber security measures are in place to protect against the vast majority of common cyber-attacks. All customers can be assured that Lane Electronics are constantly working to improve security across their IT systems to secure them against all types of cyber-attack. Certification requires compliance to a number of IT-related control parameters including firewalls, user access control, malware protection and patch management.

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed and industry-supported scheme that helps businesses protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber-attacks and provides a clear statement of the basic controls organisations should have in place to protect themselves. It is the UK Government’s answer to a safer internet space for organisations of all sizes, across all sectors. Developed and operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Cyber Essentials is considered the best first step to a more secure network, protecting companies from 80% of the most basic cyber security breaches.

Gaining Cyber Essentials certification also enables organisations to showcase their credentials as trustworthy and secure when it comes to cyber security.

Lane Electronics are the preferred connector source across many industry sectors including defence, avionics, motorsport, marine, communications, medical, test and measurement, general industrial solutions and geophysical. A major source for all key connector types, Lane Electronics have a multi-million-pound connector and piece-part stockholding and can offer next-day delivery.

Demo: Achronix Speedster7t 2D NoC vs. Traditional FPGA Routing

Sponsored by Achronix

This demonstration compares an FPGA design utilizing Achronix Speedster7t 2D Network on Chip (NoC) for routing signals with the FPGA device, versus using traditional FPGA routing. The 2D NoC provides a 40% reduction in logic resources required with 40% less compile time needed versus using traditional FPGA routing. Speedster7t FPGAs are optimized for high-bandwidth workloads and eliminate the performance bottlenecks associated with traditional FPGAs.

What is “real-time control” and why do you need it?

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Real-time control is the ability of a closed-loop system to gather data, process that data and update the system within a defined time window. If the system misses that defined window, its stability, precision and efficiency will degrade. Diminished control can be detrimental to system performance; for example, not achieving the necessary speeds or even overheating. This article will explain the functional blocks of a real-time control system and provide an example of a robotics application.

Direct Drive: Getting More Juice from Your JFET

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and UnitedSiC

In this episode of Chalk Talk, Jonathan Dodge from UnitedSiC (now part of Qorvo) and Amelia Dalton discuss how you can take full advantage of silicon carbide JFET transistors. They delve into the details of these innovative transistors including what their capacitances look like, how you can control their speed and how you can combine the benefits of a cascode and a directly driven JFET in your next design.
