ZigBee SoCs provide cost-effective solutions Design How-To 11/8/2005 Post a comment The IEEE 802.15.4 standard and ZigBee wireless network technology are ideal for the implementation of a wide range of low cost, low power and reliable control and monitoring applications within the private home and industrial environment.
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.
