Damping of Power-Converter Front-End Averaging Filters Design How-To 7/29/2002 Post a comment The performance of an LC averaging filter at the input stage of an off-line power converter, with and without additional damping, is compared under common transient disturbances. Results suggest that the bulky and costly damping may not be justified for the improvement in performance.
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.
