All-day batteries, are we there yet? Power DesignLine Blog 5/12/2006 Post a comment There have been several news items in recent weeks about new battery technologies or improvements on existing designs. It seems they all have one thing in common -- they're not here yet.
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.
