Green power in the future Power DesignLine Blog 9/18/2009 Post a comment Sharp Microelectronics reported its first loss ever this year so the company is investing in a future "green" to ensure it keeps its competitive edge.
Ban the power for BANs Power DesignLine Blog 9/9/2009 Post a comment Qualcomm described a new algorithm to lower the power of body area networks at a recent conference. The medical industry needs that to have sensors work 24/7 in regular living conditions without wireless packets getting lost.
Managing waves and thoughts Power DesignLine Blog 9/2/2009 Post a comment Bin He can point to a spot on the brain that gave off a sub-microvolt signal corresponding to a thought. The question now is can thoughts be managed with the same techniques used to manage power?
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.
