How Switched Reluctance Motors enable green designs Design How-To 7/27/2009 Post a comment The electronics industry continues to transition from designing with inefficient induction motors to Switched Reluctance Motors (SRMs) that offer high efficiency, elegant design and an ultra-compact size to accommodate the size and weight needs of today's electronics.
Driving higher levels of efficiency in motor designs Design How-To 7/21/2009 Post a comment With energy conservation as a key focus globally, efficiency in motor designs is a growing concern. With governmental regulations urging higher levels of efficiency, motor drives are becoming more sophisticated to meet this efficiency challenge.
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.
