FPGA Synthesis of Custom DSP Blocks Using Distributed Arithmetic Design How-To 6/8/2001 Post a comment Distributed arithmetic, coupled with memory-rich FPGA platforms, provides an efficient means of implementing certain types of DSP functions. Instructors from the niversidad Politcnica de Valencia,Spain, explain how to design FPGA-based parameterized finite-impulse-response (FIR) filters based on this branch of mathematics.
A Quadrature Demodulator Tutorial Design How-To 6/4/2001 Post a comment Quadrature demodulators are important circuits for frequency modulation and certain digital-modulation applications. Motorola's Danielle Coffing and Eric Main offer a quadrature demodulator tutorial, complete with transfer-function derivation and IC implementation.
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.
