TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by Barbara Schmitz, MEN Mikro Elektronik
The growing demand for graphic displays from embedded systems in both the consumer and industrial space presents challenges for system designers. Fortunately a convergence of innovative connectors and low-power, highly integrated processors is enabling developers to meet that demand with small, powerful and rugged solutions.
Regardless of the modern mobile application in question, whether it be fleet management of agricultural machines, passenger information in buses or video surveillance of trains, theRead More...

by Manish Bhardwaj, Texas InstrumentsDesigners frequently encounter challenges when creating solar micro inverters based on embedded processors. A number of these can be explained by way of insight into power stage design and control.
TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
by Jiming Sun, IntelThere are a number of unique firmware requirements for embedded systems and IoT that do not require the familiar BIOS but rather domain- and application-specific needs. Specific firmware support addresses these unique needs in the embedded and IoT space.
by Austin Hipes, Unicom EngineeringIntel’s methodical approach to process technology advancement and enhancement of its CPU microarchitecture give OEMs a predictable model through which they can plan product roadmaps that include performance increases and cost reductions.
TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by David Stonier-Gibson, CEO, SPLat ControlsIn the real world where time is money and systems are becoming more complex, product developers are looking to the controller vendor for more out of the box functionality to help speed up time to market. This is all the more pressing now that control designs often include a graphical human-to-machine interface (HMI).
Michael Foley, Bluetooth SIGBluetooth 4.0, with the hallmark feature of Bluetooth low energy wireless technology, is ready to roll. The Bluetooth SIG formally adopted the radio and host layers of the specification, and opened qualification for new products in July of last year.
