I'm interested in superconductivity. It promises many things. But it's taking long now to fulfil our dreams.
There are many bricks constructing the wall. Perhaps this will become a gigantic change to our technology. The article describes the possibility of having superconducting transistors. But 30 Kelvin seems to me still to low temperature and the search is for ambient temperature. The quest still goes ahead.
Superconductivity seems to be a technology that is perpetually "almost there," but these Brookhaven researchers seem to be committed to solving the mystery, and they are actually making progress. Keep you fingers crossed!
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.
