With an emphasis on connected devices, engineers are tasked with getting their devices online as quickly as possible. What if you could take an existing system, previously not IOT capable, and get it connected without having to do a redesign? Using Total Phase’s traditional development tools, such as protocol analyzers and host adapters you can collect and analyze data from embedded systems for the purpose of debugging and development. Now, take the same concept and move it to the Internet of Things. Learn how…
Overview of the signal generation capabilities of the PIC12F157X MCU family.

This training video introduces the Peripheral Pin Select (PPS) for Microchip 8-bit PIC MCU. The training steps you through how the PPS operates and then how to use the peripheral, including code examples.
8-bit MCU runs inductive cooktop demo. Microchip's Greg Robinson, 8-bit MCU director, shows Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo the new PIC16F170X/171X in a "smart" kitchen. This device not only takes the heat...it controls it!
8-bit MCUs just keep getting better and more integrated. Extension Media's Chris A. Ciufo interviews Microchip's 8-bit MCU guru Greg Robinson. Among the new "intelligent analog" PIC16F170X/171X family's best features: two internal Op Amps and Zero Cross Detect--both analog features reduce board space and BOM cost. 10-bit ADC and 8-bit DACs plus a programmable pin crossbar make these 8-bangers some of the most innovative in the market.
Bluetooth Low Energy (LE, or BLE, or Smart) is all about sending and receiving data just like any other Bluetooth device, but doing so using much less power. It's ideally suited for M2M applications where a device wakes up, transmits or receives data, then goes back to sleep. The Bluetooth SIG specifies myriad application profiles from healthcare ("Blood Pressure Profile") to Sports and Fitness. At the recent DESIGN West 2013 conference, editor-in-chief Chris A. Ciufo got the lowdown on Laird's new BL600 Bluetooth LE Smart modules.
