Machine vision is the concept of using cameras as an aid in industrial applications, including factory automation. “Aid” can mean different things to different people. For example, if you are responsible for product quality on an assembly line, you can use machine vision to inspect each product as it rolls off the line to ensure that it is being manufacturing to the required specifications and that there are no defects.

The hardware side of RISC-V is ready for prime time. No one questions that.
It’s a wrap. The AUO-ADLINK Tech Forum is now officially in the books. However, all the sessions are still available on-demand, so you can rest assured that you won’t miss a thing (nor should you).
The term “secure print” involves protecting printed documents along every step of the document’s life—from the originating application to the target print device and then after it’s in the user’s hands. Secure printing could be a mechanism to keep documents confidential. It could also be a way to ensure that documents are not copied.
Advantech is one of those global embedded computer companies, so their road is not a simple A to B. point to point connection. That said, with facilities all around the globe, the company will have lots to show up the upcoming embedded world exhibition, specifically in Hall 1, Booth 1-207.
AI is regularly in the spotlight because of all the great things that can be accomplish with it. However, while we don’t want to think of it that way, it’s also possible that AI can be used for nefarious reasons, and unfortunately, that’s what’s starting to happen.
The road to embedded world is getting longer and longer in that the number of stops continues to increase, as more embedded vendors sign on to exhibit their wares at the industry’s most significant event of the year.
We've been touting the benefits of long-range wide-area networks (WANs) for a long time now, but at what point do we say, “they’ve arrived”?
It’s always a great thing when technology is used for good reasons. Especially for safety and security purposes.
Consumer products and technology continue to evolve, particularly how we interact with them. Ensuring that the interaction is a smooth and seamless one is more difficult than it sounds.
The CO2GO is a mobile CO2 sensor that’s simple to use and sells for about $130. Built around the Infineon Xensiv PAS CO2 sensor, the system contains green, yellow, and red LEDs that reflect the ambient air quality. Since it’s USB-powered and weighs just a few ounces, the CO2GO can be plugged into a wall charger, computer, and used just about anywhere.
I have said for some time that there is a lot of confusion over what Industry 5.0 actually is. In this situation, I use the old “ask five people, get five different answers” axiom.
Machine learning (ML) is all about massive amounts of processing, DSP, etc., right? Maybe not, according to the team at Aspinity. The company continues to push ahead on the analog front. The latest member of the company’s analogML family, the AML100, operates completely in the analog domain. As a result, it can reduce always-on system power by 95% (for the record, we had to walk through this a couple of times before I believed them).
As we see the trend of edge computing rise across industries, one of the most important uses for it is in data centers. Incorporating edge computing enables more autonomously run data centers, and a low latency network is critical in environments that strive to maximize compute throughput and reduce server idle time. Timothy Vang, Vice President of Marketing and Applications at Semtech, answers some questions about the intricacies of edge computing and the important role it plays in the modern data center to meet the current bandwidth and speed demands.
Matt Johnson was appointed President and CEO of Silicon Labs earlier this year.
IoT databases are different from general databases. Really? That was a surprise to me.
Applications that require high-quality audio are fraught with issues.

Precise and accurate high-resolution imaging is a requirement in many applications, such as medical/healthcare. You certainly wouldn’t want your surgeon looking at a display that wasn’t as crisp and clear and as fast-reacting as possible.
