How I developed the Rolls Royce among UHF readers

When Kiman (42) first came into contact with Nedap six years ago through a squash buddy, he thought it was something extraordinary: unlimited vacations, no fixed training budgets, a lot of freedom to fill in your job the way you want to and above all, short lines of communication with other teams. This was a huge difference from the engineering firm where he had previously worked as an electrical engineer. There everything went by the hour and he never felt like the owner of the products he was working on. ...

When opportunity knocks, dare to open the door

Experienced people know that careers are founded on as much luck as judgement and skill, as Arnela Masic discovered during her engineering studies in 2015. One lucky moment put her on a path to the career she enjoys today: she forgot her lunch. “A friend suggested I could get a free lunch at an ASML-hosted lunch meeting on campus that day. It was there I learned about the ASML scholarship. I applied and was eventually selected – it felt pretty special as only 25 scholarships are on offer in the Netherlands each year. ...

Risk-based method to Determine Inspections and Inspection Frequency

Extending inspection periods can result in a lower level of safety, but based on insight from using a mathematical model it is possible to use improvements to the rolling stock to create more efficient inspection schedules while maintaining the same level of safety. Until recently, the trains of the Dutch Railways were inspected daily. Frequency and scope of inspections were prescribed by legislation and regulations. Inspections were designed to ensure that the rolling stock to be deployed for passenger service with a sufficient degree of safety. ...

AnSem’s unique Sizing Tool for analog integrated circuits

Are you biased well to do your job? At AnSem at least our integrated circuits are biased correctly. How come? Because we are using an automated analog IC design process that always results in proper operating modes. We call it the Sizing Tool. Some of us might know that in the mid 90’s fully automated analog integrated circuit design was a hot topic. Many attempts have been made to create fully automated a transistor circuit based on functional specifications. ...
