Book Excerpt: How to engineer EM circuits Design How-To 5/1/2012 6 comments Designed for use by microwave engineers, this 300-page text entitled Numerical Methods for Engineering: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Computational Electromagnetics teaches how to create the necessary computer code to engineer antennas, microwave circuits, and other applications using EM fields and waves.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
