Off the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula lies the Mesoamerican Reef, which, like all coral reefs, is one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet. However, rising temperatures across the globe are affecting marine life just as much as terrestrial life. As seas get warmer, ocean acidification increases, and oxygen levels in the water drop, coral reefs like the Mesoamerican Reef are experiencing a fatal health crisis known as “white syndrome,” a disease that can kill corals in under 40 days.
Conformance to a protocol standard is the foundation for problem-free interaction of devices from different manufacturers in the same network.This interoperability is essential for the success of a communication technology.

By expanding the breadth of device-to-application solutions with IPv6, LoRaWAN’s addressable IoT market is broadened to include internet-based standards required in smart electricity metering and new applications in smart buildings, industries, logistics, and homes.
I used to think electric vehicles (EVs) were invented recently in response to the global outcry to reduce carbon emissions. So, you can imagine my surprise when I learned EVs have been in and out of popularity since the late 19th century but didn’t stick until the 21st century mostly because fossil fuels were just so available.
Agile Analog’s Process-Agnostic Analog IPs Can Help Solve Current Semiconductor Capacity Challenges - NewsMay 05, 2022
