Connector Manufacturers Sense Growth

As sensors increasingly work in tandem with connectors in IoT applications, some companies are expanding their expertise to encompass both of these elements.  Much like human eyes and ears, electronic sensors detect, measure, and report data on physical properties that enable electronic systems to react. Sensors of all types are proliferating as they become the Read More >>

Buildings Are Smarter Than Ever

The Internet of Things is expanding into every aspect of infrastructure, putting greater demands on the sensors and connectors that keep these systems on constant guard. Electricity was just the beginning. Today’s built environment has integrated technology into every aspect of the form and function of buildings of every type.  Our homes, schools, office buildings, Read More >>

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.

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 >>
