I just received an email from my chum Luiz Costay. As an aside, earlier this year, Luiz and I had made tentative plans to meet up at ESC Brazil – Luiz was going to show me the sights – but fate had other plans and neither of us ended up going to ESC in Brazil (bummer).
But we digress… In his email, Luiz spake as follows:
Hi Max, I recently finished writing a simple survey paper in an attempt to introduce the non-specialized reader to two combined technologies: energy harvesting + sensor network nodes = autonomous sensor network nodes.
Is there any way you could spread the word about this paper?
Well, of course there is (grin). Click Here
to download a copy of Luiz's paper, then post comments below to tell him what you think about it.
If you found this article to be interest, visit Microcontroller / MCU Designline
where – in addition to my Max's Cool Beans
blogs on all sorts of "stuff" – you will find the latest and greatest design, technology, product, and news articles with regard to all aspects of designing and using microcontrollers.
Also, you can obtain a highlights update delivered directly to your inbox by signing up for my weekly newsletter – just Click Here
to request this newsletter using the Manage Newsletters tab (if you aren't already a member you'll be asked to register, but it's free and painless so don't let that stop you [grin]).
Last but certainly not least, make sure you check out all of the discussions and other information resources at All Programmable Planet
. For example, in addition to blogs by yours truly, microcontroller expert Duane Benson is learning how to use FPGAs to augment (sometimes replace) the MCUs in his robot (and other) projects.
