Good Physical Layout Takes Black Magic Out Of Power-Supply Design Design How-To 3/18/2000 Post a comment When it comes to switching power supplies, the importance of a good printed circuit board (PCB) layout can't be overstated. Find out which operation factors affect the printed circuit board design, see some good models, and read about possible pit-falls in the design of the switching power supply.
Smart 2-kW supply eyes distributed power Product News 3/6/2000 Post a comment Artesyn Technologies' AFE2000 series of front-end, 2-kW ac/dc power supplies and accompanying AFS4000 power shelf serve expanded networking, telecom and computer applications that use distributed-power architectures.
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.
