TFT-LCD regulator drives low-voltage portables Product News 5/1/2005 Post a comment Maxim touts the ability of its MAX8739 regulator, which includes two high-current operational amplifiers for driving active-matrix, thin-film transistor liquid-crystal displays (TFT-LCDs), to work at input voltages down to 1.8 V. Suited for notebook and automotive applications, the regulator includes a logic-controlled, high-voltage switch with adjustable delay.
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.
