One of the most important challenges brought on by IoT connectivity is security. As embedded devices work their way into every aspect of our lives, this also makes them more vulnerable.
The Smart Home made quite a showing at CES. I?d estimate that 15 percent to 25 percent of the total floor space included Smart Home devices and technology. Frankly, most of these companies are flaili
The Imperative for Instant-On: Functional Safety in Automotive, Industrial, and Embedded Systems - BlogDecember 02, 2019
Instant-On is often touted as an ease-of-use feature. Consumers, as we know, are extremely impatient and want their gadgets to be available immediately.
When access to the cloud is impaired, access to this storage and off-site intelligence is interrupted. The impact on an IoT system depends on its reliance upon these cloud resources.
For embedded engineers, the Make vs Buy argument has a strong emotional context associated with it. They are wary to bring in components and software and boards they do not have design control over.
There?s a lot of noise about how USB Type-C is going to be the universal connector. I found myself buying into the excitement. At least until I bought a new MacBook Pro...
I?m going to start this column with something potentially controversial: the home network has taken a step back with the introduction of IoT technology.
One of the challenges standards bodies face is balancing the cost of managing a standard with access to the standard.
The cloud is an enticing alternative to edge-based processing.
The key to developing effective IoT security is to first consider who might want to compromise your system, what they might gain, and what you need to secure.
The simplest application of power modes is that when a system is idle, you put it to Sleep. Today?s MCUs, however, offer multiple low power modes, further complicating low power design.
