Bridge chips can extend the PCI bus News & Analysis 5/8/2000 Post a comment The PCI specification keeps the PCI bus on a tight leash, physically and logically. There are well-defined physical limits to how far the bus can go, as well as the standard logical limit of being able to load only eight devices on a 33-MHz bus, and even fewer on a 66-MHz bus.
Op amps: the 10,000-foot view News & Analysis 5/1/2000 Post a comment Though semiconductor makers keep tweaking the specs, op amp selection still requires some tradeoffs. Here is a personal view on some trends to watch.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
