FPGA testing for DO-254 compliance Design How-To 5/22/2012 1 comment This article describes key challenges that can be encountered when verifying FPGA pin-level requirements during board-level testing under DO-254 guidelines.
Saving size, weight in avionics, military or space power distribution systems Design How-To 5/11/2012 Post a comment Power distribution systems for military, aviation and space electronics must be optimized for efficiency, size and weight. These goals can be achieved by the use of high reliability DC-DC converter and EMI filter modules. Further improvements can be achieved by replacing linear regulators with high efficiency, high power density point of load converters.
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.
