So many questions, so little time: Which Spice will suffice? Design How-To 6/14/2004 Post a comment Let's face it; if you use small 'proved out' designs, and never need to answer 'what if' questions, you probably don't need Spice, writes Intusoft's Tim Ghazaleh in this introduction to Spice modeling in the June issue of Planet Analog magazine. But Spice modeling can verify the performance of your favorite part in a new design " even check the effects of PCB manufacturing variations. (At the very least, check out the gorgeous screen shots.)
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.
