Multiple Standards Vie for Home Networking Supremacy Design How-To 8/27/2002 Post a comment "No new wires" is the rallying cry of four different standards contending for dominance in the potentially lucrative home-networking
market. Charles Small explains home-network requirements and discusses the pros and cons of the leading proposed wireless, phone-line, and power-line solutions.
Why MEMS Need to Be More Like ASICs News & Analysis 8/12/2002 Post a comment Microelectromechanical-system (MEMS) technology has reached a level
where MEMS devices should be making a big impact in key application
areas, such as communications and biotechnology. TechOnLine's Content
Director, Jim Lipman, provides his take on why MEMS pervasiveness is
currently much smaller than expected by many analysts and a way MEMS
usage can be increased.
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.
