Smart-Home Technology for the Disability Community

A new wave of connector-rich technologies are giving greater independence to people with disabilities By Adam Wahlberg When Mark Siegel wants to play music in his Minneapolis condo, he twitches his left ear. This is how he controls his iPad, which is how he manages his home environment. To him it’s all quite remarkable. “I Read More >>

Sensors Make Sense Beyond IoT Applications

Synergy between advanced sensors as well as related connectors and cable assemblies is opening new avenues of growth and profit for the interconnect industry. Electronic sensors are popping up everywhere, and this technology is expected to proliferate logarithmically over the next few years. Sensors act as the eyes and ears of electronic equipment. They are Read More >>

5G’s Threefold Mandate

The challenges of high-bandwidth low-latency wireless for autonomous technology, high data volumes for media, and support for the Internet of Things are shaping the next generation of wireless.   While each generation of mobile technology has been developed to tackle new challenges, the current generation in development – the 5G standard – will be designed Read More >>

The Internet of Ice Cream (and Things)

By connecting an Italian line of frozen-treat machines via the Internet of Things, the equipment maker prevents unnecessary ice cream downtime.   The maker of large-scale gelato, ice cream, and frozen-dessert equipment, Carpigiani of Bologna, Italy, re-upped its agreement with connected-business solution provider Telenor Connexion earlier this summer with hopes that 4,000 gelato-making machines will soon Read More >>

RF Connectivity Platforms for M2M and IoT

The Internet of Things has achieved cost-effective mass-market implementation in consumer applications more quickly than in custom solutions for industrial automation, but now the playing field is being leveled by wireless machine-to-machine connectivity.   Technology concepts often burst onto the scene with a big splash of possibilities followed by the sobering reality of implementation. The Read More >>

Specifying for Standards of the Future

Systems designers must keep up with ever-evolving next-generation device standards, as well as with standards not yet set.   Systems design engineers need to keep several considerations in mind when designing to meet codes and standards. But what about when design or product standards don’t yet exist, are in flux, or when technology convergence blurs Read More >>

Evaluation Board Allows IoT Deployments That Use Ambient Energy

Using AEM10940 technology, IoT power sub-system designs can benefit from elevated conversion efficiencies up to 94%, accelerated supercapacitor charging, and the industry’s lowest cold-start power.      Ultra-low power semiconductor developer e-peas has introduced the first in a series of products with the objective of revolutionizing power delivery in Internet of Things (IoT) applications, such Read More >>

Wearables on the Factory Floor

Industry 4.0 is the point where automation, the Internet of Things, wearables, and customization converge.   “Industry 4.0” is still a bit of a buzzword, but it gets closer to realization every day. Industry 4.0 refers to the fourth industrial revolution. In earlier articles, we discussed the first (industrialization), second (mass production), and third (IT integration) Read More >>

Cyber and Physical Worlds Merge in Connected Industry

Cyber and physical worlds merge in connected industry to radically alter industrial production.   Until today, industrial facilities have largely followed a simple concept – that of automated tasks being performed by automated devices that are connected to a central controller. That’s it; nothing more is necessary for industrial production. The network is merely the vehicle for the Read More >>

Automotive Meets IoT in the Connected Car

With pervasive connectivity, powerful features emerge that change the entire automotive ecosystem in the connected car. In recent years, in-car systems have been supplemented by basic Internet connectivity, allowing drivers and passengers to remain “plugged in” to the business and social networks they take for granted when at home or in the office. But what Read More >>
