Wireless home yields more apps News & Analysis 11/30/1999 Post a comment As wireless LAN speeds approach 11 Mbits/second-faster than the speed of traditional, wired Ethernet LANs-new markets will want to reap the benefits.
Delivering compressed multimedia News & Analysis 11/24/1999 Post a comment Given the long history of audio and video data transmission over various networking topologies, it would seem that these two technologies were made to go together.
MP3 decoding takes on handheld devices News & Analysis 11/8/1999 Post a comment All the publicity in the Internet digital audio market thus far has been centered on the single-purpose MP3 player. While this vertical market application is creating a loyal following and a flurry of new consumer products, some of the hardware designs may be too specific to a single function: MP3 playback.
Integer math: cuts cost, hardware News & Analysis 11/3/1999 Post a comment Spectral subtraction, perceptual linear prediction and parameter filtering are well-known speech-recognition algorithms, and all of them are developed using floating-point and many divides and conditional branches.
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.
