Voltage like water: Working with low-voltage op amps News & Analysis 9/1/2001 1 comment Cell phones, calculators and portable instruments opened the market for low-voltage op amps, explains op amp guru Ron Mancini. But using these low voltage gems typically requires considerable sacrifice in dynamic range. The trick, he says, is to pay attention to biasing and error sources - and not give up a millivolt.
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.
