Micromachined Devices for Space Telecom Applications Design How-To 7/27/2000 Post a comment Many RF-MEMS components can now be integrated on a single circuit die, yielding novel filter banks or switching matrices offering improved functionality and allowing practical solutions for implementing novel transceiver architectures. The innovative integration of electronics, made possible by MEMS, either on-chip or inside the same package, will further increase system functionality and compactness for future communication satellites.
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.
