Circuit protection takes a new turn News & Analysis 6/6/2000 Post a comment With the concepts of total-system and multiple-level circuit protection fast taking hold as higher-speed and lower-voltage applications beckon-from high-level Firewire and Universal Serial Bus (USB) tasks to protecting everyday sensor lines-more protection devices and more device types in combination are becoming the rule rather than the exception.
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.
