Understanding HSDPA's Implementation Challenges Design How-To 1/28/2005 4 comments HSDPA promises to deliver "true" broadband data pipes to cellular networks. But it also brings with it a set of difficult engineering challenges. Fortunately, by using a software-based design, designers can address these challenges.
Handset hails China's arrival Teardown 1/17/2005 Post a comment The e757 smart phone from TCL contributes to the growing body of evidence proclaiming China's arrival in the handset industry. In a field characterized by rapid change and increasing product sophistication, TCL and its cell phone competitors in China have mounted a serious response to the entrenched and incumbent players, with the group supplying more than half of the domestic Chinese market.
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.
