My first thought was '....yeah, I bet that sucker costs a bit..' The answer is: Nope. It is a bit south of $300. That is both a nice price point and a lot of capability.
I still remember trying to trouble shoot a 8048 which was having a bit of problem handling a serial RS-232 port (using software decoding, of course) Oh, yeah, I was using a 454 scope (not storage!). Sat in a darkened room, running the bad routine time after time as I tried to figure out where I had goofed up (after 3 days, I found my error - a quick change in the code and the problem was fixed and I was a bit smarter). Anyways what I wouldn't have given for something like the Logic 16.
Now if I could get a 4 channel analog scope with all the goodies (e.g. storage and deep storage, etc). Wait, I probably can! Oh, my, the world moves on.
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.
