The terror in the teleprinter Engineering Investigations 10/27/2010 Post a comment In the dead of night a teleprinter chattered away, a few characters at a time, printing complete rubbish. Was it spirits or something more earthly to blame?
CDR module gets the jitters Engineering Investigations 10/21/2010 4 comments A supplier’s clock and data recovery module will not stay synchronized. Engineers are hesitant to complain after their first problem with the module turned out to be an embarrassing layout error.
The case of the un-sensitive sensor Engineering Investigations 10/12/2010 Post a comment An engineer learns that shielding can only help so much while investigating
problems with a test stand for checking fuel metering pumps for a specific assembly defect.
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.
