"Digital has become so popular that people often assume that analog is the old technology,"
It is sad today that Digital Engineers are so focused on 1's and 0's since all electronics is Analog.
How long does it take that bit change to propogate? What is the best means of timing parallel digital synchronous signals?
I'll say it again ALL Electronics are Analog, they may be disguised in a digital package or as a logic element but when it comes to transistor leakage, output loading, Transition timing it's an analog signal.
If you disagree with me then find me a signal that can change state's rail to rail without any loss and absolutelutely no delay.
I admire complex FPGA designers but even there delays have to be taken into consideration.
Just one part of the learning curve for Digital designers, the part they seldom understand.
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.
