For even more immunity on analog signals use a low impedance interface like 4-20 mA. The input to a 4-20 mA receiver is typically terminated with a resistor between 50 to 500 Ohms. It takes one heck of a strong RF signal to have any noticable effect on a 50 ohm terminated input.
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.
