5 Best Bench top Multimeters (2019)

Posted by Tommy Reed on Dec 31, 2018 11:21:00 PM

Go into any electronics lab and you will undoubtably see a bench top multimeter.  The humble bench-top multimeter is a staple of any lane and is one of the most fundamental and highly used pieces of test equipment for electronic design. 

**Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links at no additional cost to you.

As the name implies, the multimeter is useful for a wide range of measurements and tests.  Bench top digital multimeters, or DMMs, can be used to to make the basic (Ohm’s Law) measurements:

  • Measure resistance
  • Measure voltage
  • Measure current

5 Great Engineering Laptops (Plus Free CAD Tool Guide)

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Dec 31, 2018 11:17:00 PM

Finding the Best Performing Engineering Laptop


Our engineering team at Bliley is growing, which is great, but it also introduces some new challenges for small business like ours... finding the best performing engineering laptops for our engineers.

We want to give our engineers the best tools available and create an environment where they can be their most innovative and do the best work of their careers.  Of course, a key to this whole equation is the technology they use day-to-day to get those next generations products designed. We recently kicked off a search for the best laptops that are perfect for engineering workloads. As you can probably imagine, the ideal laptop for an engineer needs to have great compute and graphics power.

The battery life needs to last most of the day (because what’s the use of getting an ultra-portable engineering laptop that has to be tethered to a power outlet all day?!?).  The CAD tools an engineer relies on every day require a lot of memory to run smoothly, and most engineers prefer to work with multiple monitors, so expandability is important too!

The Impact of RF Engineers on the Commercial Space Industry

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Nov 28, 2017 6:30:00 AM

 

While the expansion of the private sector into space is still in its infancy, there is little doubt that it will prove to be one of the most significant economic developments of this century, and RF engineers are one group of industry specialists that are making it happen. Indeed, it's almost impossible to overstate the impact that engineers specializing in radio frequency tech have had and will continue to have, not only with operating and maintaining commercial space activity but shaping it as well. Let’s explore all the different ways that RF engineers are making the “Space 2.0” era possible.

The Future of Unmanned Vehicles

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Sep 5, 2017 6:30:00 AM

Unmanned vehicles have changed our world over the past 15 years, and continue to do so one battlefield, one site inspection, and one independent film at a time. Science fiction writers, engineers and military thinkers alike had envisioned robotic and autonomous warfighting machines for years, and in the early 21st century, they became a viable and widely used option in warfare. But as they continue to advance and become less expensive, what does future hold for unmanned vehicles?

Posted by Bliley Technologies on May 30, 2017 6:30:00 AM

Many people think that in order to become a leader in business, you have to have some kind of business-focused educational background. But the truth is that leaders of many companies which are household names share one thing in common: they were all educated in or began their careers in some form of engineering discipline.
