Power line protocols back multimedia use News & Analysis 10/11/1999 Post a comment To meet the requirements of almost all potential users, a home networking solution must deliver reliable network connectivity without new wiring. Only the truly adventurous technologist will struggle with the installation of cabling.
Inductorless design boosts outputs News & Analysis 10/5/1999 Post a comment Switched-capacitor charge pumps, which offer a size advantage over the equivalent inductor-based regulator, are popular for boosting the battery voltage in small handheld equipment.
Standards harden RF requirements News & Analysis 10/5/1999 Post a comment Changing standards for time-division-multiple-access cellular and personal communications systems are toughening RF requirements and making handset design more demanding.
DSL 'magic' opens Net to masses News & Analysis 10/5/1999 Post a comment Advances in digital subscriber line data communication are opening a new world of Internet access for home users, a world where they can speed to a remote server at data rates of 512 kbits/second to 8Mbits/s.
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.
