@betajet: Was he by any chance an EE professor?  :-)  One of the kind who knows all about "Maxwell's equations, Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, and Shannon's equation" but hasn't ever built anything real?

Here's what I used to tell my students:
This is a data sheet. It contains data. If you want information, you have to work.

@MohKraats: I have really seen someone grabbing the wrong end.

I think the proof is in the pudding. I have not done this, however I'll bet a lot of $ that if you go around the country and look at EE curricula in any university that offer EE (or ECE these days), "electronics" as a course will be a very tiny minority of what is taught. And in graduate school EE? Even less likely.

Just sayin'.

@Bert22306 (can I call you 22306 for short?): To put this soldering stuff in better perspective, EE = Electrical Engineering. Not "electronics engineering."

 

Really ... well, http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/EE doesn;t agree with you 100% on that one, because it shows EE as being able to mean "Electrical Engineer" or "Electronic Engineer".

When I was as school, we took EE to mean "Electrical/Electronic"

And dare I mention that "EE Times" stands for "Electronic Engineering Times"

Just sayin' ...

To put this soldering stuff in better perspective, EE = Electrical Engineering. Not "electronics engineering." In my four years of undergraduate work, we had exactly one course (one semester-long course, 5 credit hours) of "electronics." A lab course, where it was assumed that everyone had picked up the art of soldering one way or another, without taking up precious school time.

In the real world of EE these days, soldering is something done a machine has to do, and for those after the fact quick and dirty fixes, an "assembler." Very skilled, usually women, but not EEs.

I'm not sure what an "electronics engineer" might be. Do they understand Maxwell's equations, Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, and Shannon's equation? If not, then they ain't EEs! And skills in soldering don't help!

@AlanWinstanley: That image was just one from a sequence of text and images...

Have you thought about augmenting the book with a series of short YouTube videos showing close-up shots of the soldering taking place?

Glad to hear it was not intended as it looks like.

Well, as they say "a picture tells it all" .

Meaning to be carefull about what the picture tells.

You will be surprised how many people do feed the solder on the iron instead of the joint.

Adding to that that most people nowadays say the read the book, where they mean to say, they read the pictures in the book. Just to lazy to read actual text.

Whish you the best of luck with your book, and ofcourse with educating as many soldering idiots as possible.

(by the way, don't forget to start telling wich end of the iron is the handle. I have realy seen someone grabbing the wrong end. He didn't make that mistake twice, but still, also once is one time to many)

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
