As we come to the end of what has been an exciting and exhausting year, I’m almost ready to set out for Munich and electronica. I wrote a bit about what I expect it to be like last month,
The Internet of Things (IoT) will change the world. While the internet put the sum of humanity’s knowledge at a keystroke, the IoT will unite a plethora of systems and devices in a connected ecosystem. And the possibilities are endless – autonomous vehicles that communicate with each other to reduce accidents,

IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is a hot trend these days – it promises to revolutionize our industrial infrastructure by improving efficiency at existing power plants, refineries, off-shore oil platforms, pharmaceutical plants, hospitals etc. According to McKinsey, IIoT will unlock $6.2 trillion in potential
Our busy lives are increasingly being made easier and managed by technology with new devices entering the market on a regular basis. As we become more health conscious, personal fitness devices are proliferating, yet to provide full functionality these devices require the ability to sense position. However,

Last year, businesses were expected to spend an estimated $964 billion on IoT devices. (Source: Gartner) Moving forward, analysts
CHANDLER, Ariz.—Temperature measurement is central to the functionality of Internet of Things (IoT) and personal computing devices, making it imperative that developers integrate temperature sensors that reduce power consumption and lower system voltage in applications. To meet these needs,
Graphene-integrated devices could be the key ingredient in the evolution of 5G, the Internet-of-Things (IoT), and Industry 4.0. The findings were published in Nature Reviews Materials and highlighted on the cover.
Researchers within the Graphene Flagship project, one of the biggest research initiatives of the European Commission, showed that integrated graphene-based photonic devices offer a unique solution for the next generation of optical communications. Researchers in the initiative have demonstrated how properties
The IoT has been one subject that has been on everyone’s mind for the last few years. Since then, we have moved from small gimmicky examples to the start of widespread implementation of the technologies. The IoT differs
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has vowed to review automotive safety standards that force self-driving cars to include redundant equipment like steering wheels, pedals, and other features. This couldn’t come at a more pivotal moment in the worldwide ascension of autonomous cars
CHANDLER, Ariz.— Creating cloud-connected applications traditionally can require significant time and resources for embedded designers to develop necessary expertise in communications protocols, security and hardware compatibility. Developers often overcome these challenges with large software frameworks and
San Diego, CA — Express Logic announced that it has integrated the STMicroelectronics Software Self-Test Libraries (X-CUBE-STL) with the X-Ware IoT Platform for developers using STM32 microcontrollers based on ARM cores.
X-Ware IoT Platform leverages the X-CUBE-STL to help customers

At the medium-to-low end of the power spectrum there are modest power conversion requirements such as those commonly found in “Internet of Things” (IoT) equipment, which necessitate the use of power conversion ICs that deal with modest levels of current. These are usually in the range of 100’s milliamps

With capabilities including high cycle life and fast charge and discharge times, small-cell supercapacitors can oust coin-type batteries from back-up power duties in equipment ranging from IoT devices, smart meters, or medical devices, to automotive electronics and industrial computing. Typical applications
Sometimes described as the fourth industrial revolution, a new wave of technology is sweeping through industry. What was originally part of a 2020 strategy plan adopted by the German Federal Government has now spread across Europe, disrupting manufacturing and factory automation. There are now 159 organisations
