Infrared phototransistors shrink in size Product News 11/3/2005 Post a comment Now available in a 1206 case size, TT electronics OPTEK Technology's new series of NPN silicon transistors are designed for infrared detection in sensing applications. The new miniaturized surface-mount OP520/OP521 series devices tout fast response times of 15 microseconds for machine automation, miniature optical encoders and other high-speed, non-contact position sensing systems.
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.
