It is certainly correct that paying for more capacity than you are likely to need is an economically unsound choice. So if a power supply with the huperbolic output characteristics is adequate, and less expensive, then it could b the best choice.
I find noise and stability to be the critical parameters that I need to consider, rather than the price.
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.
