Connecting Silicon, Software, and Strategies for Intelligent Systems
E-letter March 2015
Oil and gas data acquisition
By Kontron
Oil and gas companies must invest wisely in rugged, high performance computing solutions.
Printed electronics embed intelligence - Everywhere
By Matthew Bright, Thin Film Electronics ASA
New advances in printed electronics have extended the sensing and data capture reach of embedded systems far beyond what we have known, while also incorporating much-needed security features. Coupled with the development of smart algorithms that emphasize the use of small data sets to make presentation and analysis of acquired data more efficient and actionable, the promise of the IoT paradigm shift in embedded computing is primed for fulfillment.
Security increasingly critical as IoT blurs lines between enterprise and embedded
By Curt Schwaderer, Editorial Director
The Internet of Things is connecting just about everything, and enterprise IT departments can no longer rely on traditional security measures nor can embedded developers assume systems are out of reach. Curt interviews both sides in Karl Volkman of SRV Network and Alan Grau of Icon Labs to get their take on IoT security needs.
Developing exemplary smart cities for a smarter world
By Monique DeVoe, Managing Editor
We are beginning the era of smart devices, homes, buildings, cities, and more to create a smarter world. The IEEE is facilitating this effort with its Smart Cities Initiative.
Cutting the cord - Energy harvesting in wearables
By Brandon Lewis, Assistant Managing Editor
This past Christmas my girlfriend got me a Fitbit Flex. I didn't ask for one or even express interest in the devices because I saw them as little more than glorified pedometers, but I took the hidden message with a grain of salt and began dutifully using my new wearable.

ARMed and ready
By Jerry Gipper, Editorial Director, VITA Technologies
ARM processors have traditionally been used as cores in intelligent peripherals. They are finally starting to show up on traditional single board computers (SBCs) as either the primary processor or in an FPGA with an integrated ARM core. Size, weight, and power (SWaP) criteria have driven choices in the past but what other factors are now being considered when choosing a processor?

SECTION: Upcoming E-Casts.  An E-cast is a live webcast that may have a single or multiple vendors. E-cast events are used to educate audiences about a problem/solution, from the vendor's perspective. The presentation is typically 45 minutes in duration with a 15-minute moderated Q&A session.
SYNOPSIS: A one-hour, live, moderated problem/solution technical webcast.
