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.

Add mobile control to your embedded application

With Anaren’s new Broadcom-based AIR for WICED Bluetooth Smart modules it’s easier than ever to ‘go wireless’ – by connecting your embedded device to a Bluetooth Smart enabled mobile device. Tiny, globally pre-certified, and ready to surface-mount in your embedded circuit.

Open-source hardware is eating the world

Open-source hardware has been making headlines for years, but only now is it finally enjoying the same mainstream adoption that the Creative Commons and open-source software have enjoyed for over two decades. With growing numbers of hardware designs publicly available to study, modify, distribute, and replicate, resistance is futile!

To Panelize or Not to Panelize

The majority of board manufacturers create boards in large panels. These panels can include different designs or simply one design repeated many times. Depending on the requirement, manufacturers can cut the panels into individual boards.

USB Technology: Past, Present and Future

USB is the most popular connectivity technology of our time. Although originally designed for the personal computer to get rid of heterogeneous connectivity options, it has become tremendously popular in many of today’s more popular gadgets.

IoT: Opportunities for Device Differentiation

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging market trend impacting semiconductor devices, system OEMs, cloud service providers, and internet infrastructure companies. The trade press, accompanied by the types of companies mentioned above, has spilled a lot of ink on the subject, but this is typical in an emerging market with evolving requirements.

Laminates Lay the Foundation

Printed circuit boards, at first glance, seem like simple rectangles imprinted with intricate copper designs. There are many variables involved with creating PCBs- yet, the underlying foundation, the laminate, is sometimes glossed over. Much as a house of extremely high quality can be destroyed by a shaky foundation, a well-designed circuit can be ruined by an inappropriate laminate.

Connect your embedded device to the IoT

With Anaren’s new Broadcom-based AIR for WICED Bluetooth Smart modules (A20737x), it’s easier than ever to ‘go wireless’ – by connecting your embedded device to a Bluetooth Smart enabled mobile device.

Bringing Advanced Sensor Functionality to Consumer, Embedded & Industrial Apps

Sensors play a key role in enabling modern electronics to more intelligently act within their environment. Through sensor fusion technology, where data from multiple sensors is used in combination, even more advanced features can be enabled.

Reduce ESD Susceptibility

It is common knowledge that electrostatic discharge (ESD) is bad for electronics. While these discharges cannot be eliminated, there are steps that can be taken to protect any electronics that you design.

Using Shift Registers to Simplify LED Designs

Shift registers can help reduce size and BOM in designs that use LEDs. By providing I/O expansion, they enable the use of smaller, less expensive microcontrollers. In some cases, the shift register can be used to drive the LED directly and thus eliminate the need for external LED drivers.

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
