Solar cell shocks battery apps Product News 10/30/2003 Post a comment Clare, Inc. touts its CPC1810, the first member of its new solar cell family, as a high output device that delivers a voltage ten times greater than traditional competing products. Indeed, the cell's output is sufficient to charge a battery directly, according to the company, which builds its photovoltaic device on the company's advanced silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology.
MEMS: The Applications Triage News & Analysis 10/21/2003 Post a comment Emerging MEMS applications have one challenge in common with virtually all entrepreneurial technology companies: They must find a way across the chasm between the early adopters of new technology and the "early majority adopters." If they don't, they becomeat besta niche company or application. Jack Shandle reports on a panel at the recent MEMS Executive Forum.
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.
