Designing with the Things in the Internet of Things

Reports predict that the resurgence of microcontroller sales in the coming years will be with MCUs that will potentially connect within the Internet of Things (IoT) and that the field is split between 8-bit and 32-bit devices. Wearables or smart homes might only require 8-bit MCUs, but once a gateway enters the picture, the application is sure to fall into the 32-bit MCU space.

It also comes with a pre-licensed library of distinct haptic effects, eliminating the need to design haptic waveforms. Buy Now


If you think Big Data's big now, just wait

We've been hearing a great deal about the power of Big Data. The hype says that as we gather more data, we will be able to get better answers to business problems, but the data levels we have seen so far could pale in comparison to what happens when we start adding sensors to the world. Read More

IT cloud vs. IoT cloud

In mid-2013, the buzz phrase "Internet of Things," also known as the "IoT," set the technology world on fire. Because of this craze, a lot of products that were developed for completely different end applications changed all their marketing collateral overnight to become IoT products. Cloud companies are not an exception. Read More

Cellular Modems for M2M Systems

By leveraging the cellular infrastructure that carriers have already put in place, designers can use this network rather than Wi-Fi or an alternative network interface for collecting data or providing remote management. Ideal for small- to medium-size data packets, the cellular network can reduce the hardware budget for large, distributed systems since no local Wi-Fi hotspot or repeater is needed for each device that connects to the cellular network..
