My Internet of Things 2015 wish list

Adam Justice, Grid Connect

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most hyped technology of 2014 and 2015 promises even more innovative IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) technology will surface. Building on the growth of IoT in 2014, the IoT will see even more explosive growth and innovation in 2015. Although I have several predictions of what will happen in [...] Continued...

Encryption 201: Static versus dynamic data

Paul Dillien, Algotronix Ltd.

Moving data presents a whole new challenge when it comes to encryption. In Part 1, “Choosing the right encryption scheme,” I looked at various aspects of AES encryption cores embedded inside an FPGA. Now we’ll take that a few steps further. When people talk about encryption, there are two different conditions to consider – data [...] Continued...

Kit simplifies development of Bluetooth-based mobile apps

Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

I continue to be amazed at how simple it is to add wireless technology to a design. It seems like it wasn’t too long ago that the wireless subsystem was added by dropping a black box onto the board. The system designer didn’t really get a understanding of how that technology worked. But the beauty [...] Continued...

Don't take your character display for granted

Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

To be honest, I hadn’t given much thought to the text characters that show up in the display of an embedded system. I’m guessing I’m not alone in taking this technology for granted. Mea culpa, as the folks at Monotype pointed out to me last week. There’s far more going on behind the scenes that [...] Continued...

Dev kits and demo videos: A great combination

Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

It’s been a week of test drives – not cars, of course, but development kits. Today, I’m taking a spin on the $49 Cypress Bluetooth Low Energy Pioneer kit. A big differentiator for this particular kit is a YouTube video that gets the user started. I’m not saying that the other kits didn’t have similar [...] Continued...

Industrial-grade flash is important to embedded designs

Steve Larrivee, Cactus Technologies Limited

If you’re following the trends in flash storage devices these days, you’ve inevitably seen the amazing advances in storage capacity at constantly reducing price points. But when you look at what’s behind these advances, you’ll notice the higher capacity and lower cost comes with a penalty to reliability. Industrial-grade flash storage, based on SLC NAND, [...] Continued...

Post-project reviews: Developing a feedback mechanism

Rory Dear, European Editor/Technical Contributor

At the start of my customer-facing career I suffered from an eagerness to please and an avoidance of disappointing clients that today I still see repeated across all industries. Some would argue this is the very definition of customer service: a nod, an affirmative “Yes Sir”, and then resolving well out of earshot any challenges [...] Continued...

Addressing security in the smart grid

Monique DeVoe Managing Editor

Having a nationwide smart grid could provide utility companies and residents many benefits over the current electric grid, but there are a lot of challenges to overcome before a U.S. smart grid can become a reality – securing the smart grid in particular. A strong strategy is needed to create a secure system before installing [...] Continued...
