The Imperative for Instant-On: Functional Safety in Automotive, Industrial, and Embedded Systems
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.
Redundancy in the Internet of Things
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.
The New Make vs Buy Equation
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.
How Many Technologies Does It Take to Turn on a Light Bulb?
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.
Keeping Pace with the Evolution of Standards
One of the challenges standards bodies face is balancing the cost of managing a standard with access to the standard.
To Cloud or Not to Cloud: The Challenge of Deciding Where to Process IoT Data
The cloud is an enticing alternative to edge-based processing.
IoT Security: Securing Resource-Constrained Devices
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.
Embedded Software - Squeezing the Most Out of Low Power Modes
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.
