Blog Post: Inductive sensing: Sensor frequency constraints / (TI E2E Community)
Configuration of inductance-to-digital converter (LDC) sensors can seem quite challenging, but by using the graph introduced in this blog post, the process can be greatly simplified. For LDCs, a sensor is a simple inductor, spring, or PCB coil in parallel with a capacitor. One of the primary constraints on the sensor is...
Solar-Power System Is Easy to Install, and Therefore Much Cheaper / (Technology Review Feed - Energy Top Stories)
A new solar power system is easy to add to a roof, and performs its own safety checks.Ordinarily, installing and connecting a new array of rooftop solar panels takes days, weeks, or even months because the hardware is complex and various permits are needed. Yesterday, on a frigid day in Charlestown, Massachusetts, researchers...
I attended the Gartner Semiconductor briefing on Oct. 23, 2014, the theme of which was “The Internet of Things: Use Cases that Move Beyond the Hype.” Most attendees were from the semiconductor industry, of course. Huge numbers like the following were thrown out: In 2020, 8+ billion things shipped in one year. This...
The company has been showing off a 20-inch model just 20mm thick with its RealSense 3D camera and a five-hour battery to use it flat on a tabletop....
Not just for plants, cross-pollination applies to know-how, too, and there may be no better example than what’s taking place among the mil-aero, medical, industrial and other markets as they seek to take on the complexities of security and safety for multicore systems.
Coming to a meeting of minds on security, independent portability and virtualization will pave the way for IoT success.
The health benefits in our future might just rest on how hale, hardy (and cost-effective) developers, including start-ups, can make their implantable medical device proof-of-concepts—and that warrants a close look at ASSP chips for help with size, power and development time hurdles.
When IEEE ratified 802.15.4a it opened the way to highly accurate tracking using wireless technology for the automotive and other industries. Now, with a new breed of integrated Ultra
Two 32bit processor IPs have been released by Cortus, the company’s second generation of processor IP that takes a minimalist approach to the ‘third wave’ of applications. Caroline Hayes spoke to Roddy Urqhart, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Cortus.
The issue of power consumption took front stage with the introduction of portable electronic devices. It became necessary for the semiconductor industry and thus the EDA industry to develop new methods and new tools to confront the challenges and provide solutions.
Embedded designers can follow a roadmap to alleviate graphics challenges when developing for mobile medical, smartphones/tablets, gaming, HDTV and more. With today’s mobile devices
Why a companion chip role for today’s smaller, less power hungry FPGAs serves smartphones, smart watches, wearables and to-be-imagined mobile consumer devices well. Apple released
Advances in CPU performance lead the way, but the diversity of new applications is feeding the frenzy for smaller, faster and lower power solutions.
What makes USB 2.0 the universal battery charger—and what nuances make charging so efficient? USB 2.0 and 3.0 have evolved from a fast data connection for peripherals like external
