NXP and Mouser Electronics Launch Dual PCB Configurable Logic Design Contest

The Dual PCB Configurable Logic Design Contest will be this year’s entry in Convergence Promotion’s 2015 Big I.D.E.A. (International Design Engineering Award). The contest will feature Dual PCB Configurable Logic, Load Switches, Protection and Filtering, Small Signal MOSFETs, and Small Signal Diodes. With merchandise awards worth a total of $12,000  for the most creative designs using the NXP products together in one application solution, and prizes at every stage in the contest, there will be dozens of winners.

The Big I.D.E.A. Q&A with NXP

Cliff Lloyd, Business Development Director, Logic Division at NXP Semiconductors, discusses the need for and benefits of dual configurable logic and this year's Big I.D.E.A.

The Evolution of the Internet of Things

To date, the world has deployed about 5 billion "smart" connected things. Predictions say there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2020. How things are fundamentally deployed today is a barrier to realizing those numbers. The industry will only achieve the reality of 50 billion connected devices by simplifying how things connect and communicate today.

Expanding the Functionality of Mobile Applications with Magnetic Gyroscopes

Mobile devices currently use the 6-axis data from acelerometers and magnetometers to enable key functions that make consumer electronics interfaces easier and more intuitive to use. Next-generation devices are moving to 9-axis sensor fusion employing gyroscopic capabilities to further improve the user experienc.

Simple Steps to Improving Software Quality

Experience shows us that there are certain attributes of the software development cycle that we must not only live with, but strive to improve. We may not like it, but we must embrace these realities. Some immutable facts of software development life are: code footprints inevitably grow as time goes on, software will always have defects, and the further a project progresses, the more costly it is to find defects and bugs.

Don't Lose Your Cool: Important Ways to Approach Heat Management

Keeping electronics a reasonable temperature is not magic, although it may feel like it at times as the rules and situations are not very familiar to electrical engineers. The effects of heat on electronics are alsosomewhat difficult to predict and often can be better understood using statistics.

A Look at the MicroSD Card of the Future: Speed & Capacity meet Reliability

Manufacturers recently released the largest capacity and fastest microSD cards ever made. The 128 Gb cards demonstrate more than a 1,000-fold increase in storage density over the last decade, and the fastest speeds of these microSD cards now rival other high-speed options for wireless computing.

Easy Methods to Improve Code Quality and Reduce Bugs

Almost all software products contain errors. If you think your product is an exception it probably means you are just not aware of the bugs yet. Modern embedded systems contain hundreds-even thousands of KB of code. As code size increases, so does system complexity and errors. Today there are affordable IDEs like Atollic TrueSTUDIO that can help you reduce the number of errors in your code early on-before you get to the debugging stage.

Low-Cost Solutions for Gesture Recognition - Renesas Solutions- Part 4

New low-cost system-design components can be used to overcome the limitations of traditional motion sensors, allowing system developers to create human-machine interfaces that accommodate a wide range of non-contact dynamic control gestures. This fourth article in our series on Renesas products for HMI applications highlights an advanced design solution that detects eight directions of palm motion.

Should You Buy or Build?

Does using a module let you save costs over the complete lifetime of the project?

Design Calculator

1. Concept phase: Feasibility study, analysis of components, time and personnel requirements is approximately $70,000 for an i.MX6 based project. This can be reduced to $27,000 if using an embedded module.

2. Circuit diagram: Preparing a circuit diagram with an integrated processor and memory is going to cost $30,000. Using an embedded module reduces the complexity and can bring this cost down to $6,500.

3. Layout: Since the application board is simpler to put together with a modular design, $13,500 to $15,000 will usually suffice. With an integrated processor costs can be double.

4. Software: The module is delivered with  BSPs for a number of different OSs and/or RTOSs. If these have to be developed then the cost can be at least $50,000.

5. Testing: As a rule integrated designs require more complex testing and cost difference can be as much as $30,000.

Bottom Line: The additional costs for an integrated design can amount to $300,000 not counting the costs of redesigns and interest charges. Comments

Power Supply Chips Get Smart

Renesas has recently introduced a number of new ICs for microcontroller power supply systems. When you have an MCU with standby modes in the nanoamp range, how much energy does that save when the multiple switching and LDO supplies that support it stay fully powered up? Not so much. That’s the problem that Renesas’ new Simple Power Supply ICs address. More
