Reference board cuts OR-ing design overhead Product News 7/1/2005 Post a comment International Rectifier's new reference design for +12-volt, 100-amp active OR-ing applications cuts the number of FETs needed by half compared to competitive solutions. In addition, solution volume is reduced by at least 60 percent, thanks to the company's DirectFET MOSFET's double-sided cooling capability.
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.
