Philips extends TriMedia reuse into Nexperia cores News & Analysis 8/30/1999 Post a comment Philips Semiconductors is expected to launch the latest refinement of its digital video platform for design reuse, under the name Nexperia, at the opening of Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) consumer electronics exhibition here this week .
Signal processing drives satellites News & Analysis 8/2/1999 Post a comment Signaling and signal processing have become a pervasive technology for vehicles launched into space. Both the payload, which is designed for a specific mission, and the supporting subsystems-the bus-that keep it functioning are permeated with signal-processing circuitry.
Military work spurs next-generation products News & Analysis 8/2/1999 Post a comment American semiconductor makers may get a little nervous about the prospect of extended temperature screening, radiation hardening and hermetically sealing devices for a high-reliability market that-under Defense Secretary William Perry's edict to purchase commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products-threatens to shrink.
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.
