Researchers claim optical comms breakthrough News & Analysis 9/10/2007 Post a comment Researchers at the Optoelectronics Research Centre within the University of Southampton, U.K., have developed a filter that can be used in high bit-rate optical systems to remove noise introduced when signals are transmitted over long distances.
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.
