A Comparison of Power-Electronics Simulation Tools Design How-To 5/23/2001 2 comments José Rodríguez, Alejandro Weinstein, and Pablo Lezana present an assessment of commercial simulation programs designed to simulate power electronic systems on a single-phase boost rectifier circuit. The evaluated software include an equation solver (Matlab), a circuit-equation solver (Matlab-Power System Blockset), a general circuit solver (PSPICE), and a power electronics specific simulator (Simplorer).

Power on the up in fuel cells News & Analysis 5/4/2001 Post a comment Fuel cells will emerge next year as a power source for laptop computers, cellphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and other electronic devices.
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.
