UWB: Tour De Standards Design How-To 8/19/2004 Post a comment Last year Mark Bowles of Staccato Communications wrote an article for TechOnLine in which he suggested that for ultra-wideband (UWB) to have a successful ascent in the marketplace, we needed to pay attention to three hard-learned lessons from the recent history and herky-jerky starts of its nearest unlicensed spectrum cousins: Bluetooth and WiFi. Mark revisits these lessons to see what kind of progress has been made.
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.
