Roving eye for Mars forces CCD rethink News & Analysis 2/2/2004 Post a comment Behind the spectacular panoramic images beamed back from Mars in recent weeks is a full-custom CCD imaging chip designed to meet the stringent demands and environmental conditions of the Martian surface. The 1,024 x 2,048-pixel chip, which handles imaging for each of the nine cameras on both the Spirit and Opportunity rovers, mandated a rethinking of CCD design.
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.
