I own two Rigol oscilloscopes and have been using them since 2009. One of them is a 1052D, which has a 16 channel logic analyzer in addition to the standard oscilloscope functions. The other one is an 1102CA. They are very nice scopes and good value for the price. I especially like the displays, which have very wide viewing angle and can be seen from anywhere in the room. I use the math functions a lot, particularly the FFT and the differential. The logic analyzer work snicely, but I have only had to use it once, because we do most digital debugging with FPGA tools.
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.
