FLUID POWER: The new Ashcroft® GC35 digital pressure sensor provides remote signaling, local reading and pressure control, all in one small, rugged design. Equipped with a 4-20 mA analog output, four digit LED display and programmable switch contacts, this multi-function instrument performs the functions of a transducer, digital indicator and pressure switch. The GC35 is offered in ranges from 0/50 through 0/7500 psig and compound ranges to 300 psi, and is available with either a back or bottom-located pressure connection. Unique qualities include a nickel plated cast aluminum housing and a brilliant, tri-color “GloBandTM” to provide a 360 degree visual indication of switch status. Other standard features include min/max recall and adjustable analog scaling along with RoHS and CE compliance.
It won't be too much longer and hardware design, as we used to know it, will be remembered alongside the slide rule and the Karnaugh map. You will need to move beyond those familiar bits and bytes into the new world of software centric design.
People who want to take advantage of solar energy in their homes no longer need to install a bolt-on solar-panel system atop their houses -- they can integrate solar-energy-harvesting shingles directing into an existing or new roof instead.

And Kaspersky implied the NSA is the smartest attacker.
