Silicon Lab : Wireless radio offers high output power Product News 2/23/2009 Post a comment Silicon Laboratories’ EZRadioPRO embedded wireless radio family claims the highest single-chip output power (up to +20 dBm) and highest sensitivity (-118 dBm), providing a best-in-class link budget that increases communication range while minimizing power consumption.
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.
