What am I holding in my hand? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 7/22/2008 2 comments Close, but no cigar - it's actually an $84.95 book that provides a hands-on introduction to Verilog synthesis and FPGA prototyping and I'm giving it away...
Team claims advance with paper based transistors News & Analysis 7/22/2008 Post a comment A group of researchers at the Centro de Investigação de Materiais within the New University of Lisbon, Portugal, claim they have made the first Field Effect Transistor with a cellulose fiber based paper "interstrate" layer.
Solve leakage and dynamic power loss Design How-To 7/16/2008 Post a comment Achieving higher performance and integration requires lower process geometries and higher clock frequencies, and aggressive power management techniques. Both leakage and dynamic power loss must be accounted for to successfully design for efficiency. Here are techniques to manage energy at the system level.
Xilinx showcased at 2008 IEEE Nuclear and Space News & Analysis 7/10/2008 Post a comment Xilinx logic solutions enabling space applications will be showcased at the 2008 IEEE Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conference (NSREC) at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona from July 14-18.
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.
