SerDes chip enables integration of multiple video streams Design How-To 11/18/2011 2 comments In a parking assist system example, single twisted-pair communication and an interface chipset provide a bidirectional control channel with a minimum latency and general purpose I/O functionality, enabling seamless frame-synchronous processing of individual video data streams.
IEEE to define 25 Gbit optical interfaces News & Analysis 11/8/2011 1 comment The IEEE has kicked off a study group to define 25 Gbit/second optical interfaces for next-generation 100 Gbit Ethernet networks replacing today's 10Gbit/s building blocks.
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.
