EE Times University  
8/23/2013   83 comments
In this final class, we will consider how a modification in the supply chain can change the way an industrial system is designed, deployed, and maintained. Specifically, we will take a look at the industrial embedded computer business of Dell’s OEM division and how a change in infrastructure can impact the whole industry.
Part IV: Getting Lost in the Data
EE Times University  
8/22/2013   120 comments
With so much data becoming available, it can affect the way systems are designed and software is written. In this class we will look at some of the tradeoffs among compressing, encrypting, and transmitting data across a network, particularly in systems where power is a scarce resource.
Part III: Security
EE Times University  
8/21/2013   113 comments
As sensors become distributed and data is collected from diverse sources, the systems become more vulnerable to attack. What can be done to ensure that both the data and the integrity of the system remain secure from internal and external attacks? In this segment we will look at both hardware and software techniques to secure the system.
Part II: Consolidation
EE Times University  
8/20/2013   125 comments
In this class we will look at what is happening in the compute centers and, in particular, technologies such as multicore and virtualization. Consolidation enables more efficient computing, centralized management, integrated data management, and visualization, as well as enabling new types of applications and automation in industrial systems.
