LeCroy will surely have a demonstration at DesignCon 2014. I wouldn't be surprised if the company has a billboard on the 101 freeway as you head south from SFO airport to Santa Clara. Only in Silicon Valley.
I don't usually need a high speed scope, but it is good to see that progress is being made in this area. I always enjoy teaching the new engineers about measurement. When they see a bad signal on a low speed scope, they assume that it is real. When I have them take a look with a better scope, they understand that the tool they use makes a difference. As Clint would say, "A man's got to know his limitations."
Are you enthusiastic about this news, or is this too far out of your area of need for a scope? I'm working to find out more about the design challenges in creating this prototype. More info when I have it.
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.
