Go, innovate, young man! Power DesignLine Blog 4/29/2009 Post a comment In 2007 Premier Farnell plc found the perfect formula for grabbing attention when it launched LiveEdge, a competition among engineers for designs that address the energy and environmental conservation fields.
Less energy to turn transistors on Power DesignLine Blog 4/22/2009 Post a comment EE Times' advanced technology editor reports on new developments in ferroelectric transistors that seem to point to a lower energy level needed to turn a transistor on.
Don't pooh-pooh the PUE Power DesignLine Blog 4/13/2009 Post a comment IC power management engineers have their work cut out: the PUE metric requires complete knowledge and understanding of each component in the data center and its power consumption.
Go read a good book! Power DesignLine Blog 4/8/2009 Post a comment Professor Gabriel Alfonso Rincón-Mora of the Georgia Institute of Technology in his book covers the entire product development cycle, from defining objectives and selecting components to layout, assembly, fine-tuning performance, and tests.
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.
