What's this about all the noise? Power DesignLine Blog 4/13/2005 Post a comment Noise has always been a component of switched mode power supplies and as with most designs there are trade-offs you have to consider for you SMPS design. Paul Greenland, Marketing Director of National Semiconductor gives you a shopping list of items to look out for when designing with switchers, so you can minimize your trade off gotchas.
PMBus, MCUs and You Power DesignLine Blog 4/4/2005 Post a comment "Make no mistake about it," says Don Alfano of Silicon Labs, PMBus will forever change the way system power management is implemented, and your next design won't be competitive if it isn't PMBus enabled.
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.
