Throughout my career, I have always hoped that someone would make an embedded peripheral library that is generic, statically checked, type safe, header only, zero cost, simple, and intuitive. With C++11, this finally seems possible.
Though cost remains an issue, wide-bandgap GaN-on-Si and SiC transistors are expected to make inroads in mid-range to high-end designs for lower-power (200 V) and higher-power applications, respectively.
If it makes sense to switch electricity metering to a more accurate, more flexible smart meter, then the same can be done for gas metering. In fact, that thought process is triggering a new generation of gas-metering techniques.
As electronic circuit boards and components become smaller and more powerful, inherent heat can cause significant damage. Infrared thermography can identify hotspots, allowing for improved thermal management and greater advances in circuit board...
Bluetooth has always been a relatively low-power, short-range communications technology, particularly compared to Wi-Fi. However, many applications within the Internet of Things (IoT) sphere need to operate at even lower power levels, which led to...
When combining consumer demand for ever faster and more reliable broadband with competition between operators and Internet providers, the stage is set for a major evolution in broadband communications.
With strict power and cost requirements of mobile SoCs and consumer demand for ultra-high-definition displays, selecting the right display and storage interfaces for mobile SoCs is more important than ever.
Prototyping frameworks that accelerate validation, exploration, and interconnectivity analysis, as well as serve as a staging area to a number of possible development paths, has a truly positive impact in most development stages and end products.
