WiMAX goes mobile in Las Vegas Blog 1/9/2008 Post a comment This is an interesting demonstration that was, no doubt, intended to provide living proof that WiMAX can deliver on its mobile broadband promise. I thought that was a foregone conclusion but I guess a demo is always a good idea.
Reporter's notebook: Displays among CES 2008 highlights Blog 1/9/2008 Post a comment In the "bigger is better" flat panel category, boasting rights this year clearly belong to Panasonic. They're showing a whopping (a word I haven't used for a while with regard to screen sizes!) 150-inch plasma screen. And while Sharp's Aquos Wall 108" LCD is hardly a competitor in size, it has distinct advantage in availability -- it starts shipping this spring. No price yet.
CES 2008 - Day 1 Blog 1/8/2008 Post a comment Today CES 2008 opened to seemingly record crowds as press, analysts, manufacturers, buyers, retailers, and anyone interested in all of the latest consumer electronics or "consumer lifestyle" as many manufacturers like to call the entire world of products these days.
Print me a circuit, if you please RF & Microwave Designline Blog 1/7/2008 Post a comment I was reading Scientific American the other day and was intrigued by an article that talked about printing silicon ICs out of a three-dimensional printer.
It's time to Despair.com Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 1/7/2008 Post a comment Satirical products reverse-engineered from the most powerful motivational posters ever inflicted upon mankind.
CES 2008 - Press Day Blog 1/7/2008 Post a comment To quote Charles Dickens, "It was the best of times; it was the worst of times." It was with great trepidation that I looked to press day this year. After the unbearable crowds of questionable bloggers last year, it turned out to be more civilized this year as most manufacturers had two lines: one for invited press, and one for everyone else. It worked out fairly well in most cases.
Catalytic's good move Blog 1/4/2008 Post a comment Catalytic has purchased a portion of Celoxica's business. Does the move make sense: will it deliver a strong player in the ESL market, or will it result in indigestion?
2008 CES Preview Blog 1/2/2008 Post a comment Well, in a couple of days, I will be winging my way back to Las Vegas, NV again for this annual 'Rite of Passage.' I've been going to CES since the early 1980s, and it continues to grow and get bigger every year attracting more and more attendees. I guess that it's both a good and bad thing.
What to look for at CES Blog 1/2/2008 Post a comment We're in a period of unprecedented fluidity in the wireless space with several technologies (standard-based and proprietary) competing as never before.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
