Harvesting nanowatts to milliwatts from ambient sources using advanced energy harvester integrated circuits

Niranjan Pathare, Texas Instruments

In the context of energy harvesting, advanced power management integrated circuits (PMICs) function like a utility company in that it controls the delivery of ambient power to downstream electronics. Properly selecting a PMIC based on five important criteria can allow system designers to augment system batteries or create self-powered systems.

Has Microsoft forgotten about embedded?

Rory Dear, European Editor/Technical Contributor

It’s fair to say that nowadays, what most consider to be “embedded” has shifted. Previously synonymous with SBCs, HMIs, and small form factor industrial PCs, the shift in interpretation has moved from board-level product (and associated complete solutions) closer to the component level. IoT endpoint devices using few but highly advanced components are what embedded [...]

Obsolescence or opportunity?

Rory Dear, European Editor/Technical Contributor

Recently I heard a phrase that I now struggle to dislodge from my brain: “Obsolescence is opportunity.” On the surface, it is the polar opposite of how most of us view it. “Obsolescence” is for many a dirty word, a potentially catastrophic risk that we do our best to pseudo-manage, but in reality, we have [...]

How software quality threatens the success of the Internet of Things

Paul Anderson GrammaTech

The Nest is a highly innovative, electronic smart home thermostat manufactured by Alphabet (formerly Google). It is by all accounts a well-designed device, replacing a traditional home thermostat and improving on it enormously by learning the habits of its users and adapting its settings in order to conserve energy. Its motion detectors notice when no [...]

Analytics-driven embedded systems, an introduction

Paul Pilotte, MathWorks

The goal of the Internet of Things (IoT) is to acquire data from various embedded systems and impart analytical processes on that data to improve performance, efficiency, and business outcomes. In part one of a three-part series on designing analytics-driven embedded systems, best practices for the acquisition and pre-processing of IoT data are reviewed.

Formal verification going mainstream for SoC block verification

David Kelf OneSpin Solutions

The use of formal verification technology as a mainstream technique for system-on-chip (SoC) designs is, at last, becoming a recognized approach to combat the verification gap. A recent survey suggests that formal assertion-based verification (ABV) is now used on 26 percent of chip design projects. However, the promise of this alternative approach to classic simulation has taken many years to bear fruit, and still only advanced verification environments incorporate it. Why is this and…

White Paper: Next Generation Bill of Materials Management: Beyond BOM 101

Staff, Arena Solutions

In the world of product design and manufacturing, the bill of materials (BOM) is a critical product information record for both the engineering and manufacturing teams. Managing BOMs with the wrong tools can cause product errors, delays and compliance failures. In this white paper, we outline the problems with manual BOM management tools like spreadsheets and e-mail and compare them to a dedicated BOM management system. Bill of Material (BOM) Management topics covered: BOM management…
