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.
At the recent DESIGN West 2013 conference in San Jose, Microchip unleashed a "broad expansion" of new wireless products targeting the M2M, connected cloud, and intelligent devices spaces. There's also a new PIC32 digital audio development kit for Bluetooth audio streaming, plus 802.15.4 modules for ZigBee.
Editor Chris A. Ciufo got a chance to chat briefly with Tyler Smith, Product Marketing Manager, Wireless Products Division of Microchip. Click on the video to hear this on-target 3-minute interview.
Zilog’s participation in the global electronics industry’s leading gathering for the design engineering community was a great success. With Zilog’s cutting edge product demonstrations, DESIGN West was the ideal venue to showcase their world-class products. Take a look at Steve Darrough, Zilog’s VP of Sales & Marketing, being interviewed about Zilog’s dynamic demonstrations.
Most of the attention in the Smart Grid is given to the utilities and their controversial wireless smart meters. But for the consumer to see real value in the technology requires creating a local network of appliances and systems within the home. That's not an easy task. There are many smart appliances on the market ready to tie into the grid, but not everyone is flush enough to go out an buy an entirely new set of appliances. Somehow, the industry needs to create aftermarket. At the DesignWest conference, Qualcomm Atherose was demonstrating your their products and techniques can move you closer to energy efficiency, if not complete independence. New Tech Press interviewed Qualcomm Atheros product manager Tim Colleran on what's happening.

Webinar held 8/4/2011 addressing the current status and future of the Smart Grid. Featuring speakers from EPRI, NRECA, Dept. of Energy, Innovari, and Clasma Events.
Environmentally friendly trams use no fossil fuels and don't need overhead wires or cables. Instead, they're propelled by a magnetic field created by power lines embedded in the road. The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology developed the system that uses shaped magnetic field in resonance (SMFIR) technology. The system avoids the recharging problem of standard electric vehicles.

The Intel Atom processor C2000 product family (codenamed Rangeley) offers a range of highly energy efficient 64-bit system-on-a-chips (SoCs) in two-to-eight core designs, offering significant I/O and acceleration integration for the communications market. Using Intel’s industry-leading 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology, the new processors deliver significantly greater performance and power efficiency than the previous generations of Intel Atom processors. Lanner's R&D department recently conducted benchmark testing on several of our products based on the Intel Atom processor C2000 product family in order to provide a precise comparison on the security performance between the current and previous generations of Intel® Atom™ processors.
Unique Solid State Rechargeable Batteries are being used by Medical, Industrial Control, Consumer Electronics, Appliance and Smart Energy companies to power their new innovative electronic product designs. These batteries have capabilities that are superior to legacy energy storage devices such as coin cell batteries and supercapacitors. This white paper identifies the product requirements and technical specifications that are addressed by Cymbet EnerChip smart rechargeable solid state batteries.
Human interfaces that use capacitive sensors for proximity or touch control are changing the way we interact with electronics.
The power grid is becoming smarter and better equipped to keep up with user demand and reduce costs for utilities. While smart grid infrastructure is being updated to be more connected and efficient, it is essential that end users monitor and manage their own consumption in order to level demand and reduce overall usage.
This paper introduces several new concepts for micro-power chip design. These concepts are based on the fundamental power distribution and energy storage techniques deployed in advanced power grid architectures.
Power consumption is becoming an increasingly important variable when it comes to calculating OPEX and carbon footprint for telecom infrastructure projects.
