Lithium batteries eye PCs, autos Product News 4/24/2003 Post a comment With the energy density and capacity of rechargeable lithi-um-ion and lithium-polymer cells up by a quarter to a third over the past two and a half years, suppliers of Li-ion batteries are now tackling bigger and more varied applications that include larger and more capable PC-based systems, automobiles and military equipment.
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.
