Dynamic power in CMOS for WCDMA Power DesignLine Blog 10/26/2004 Post a comment Cell phones have come a long way since they were first introduced. Remember when they were about the size, and weight of a mason's brick? Now, they have dimensions of a couple inches and weight of a few ounces. They have a plethora of new features and function and all of them cost, and not just money. They cost power. What's being done to constrain power usage? Plenty, and here's a link to first rate research.
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.
