Photodiodes deliver high performance Product News 4/16/2004 Post a comment Hamamatsu Corp. said its new S9251 series of silicon (Si) avalanche photodiodes (APDs) deliver excellent sensitivity in the near infrared (NIR) range and high operational stability for use as a rangefinder and in spatial light transmission applications such as optical telecommunications systems and digital computers.
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.
