Technology Trends in 2019 and Beyond

Making guesses about the future is part of what makes life interesting, though we’re not always very accurate. Luckily, one thing we do know about the future is that AI will improve our guesses quite a bit. 5G mobile internet will make it a lot easier to find out about those guesses and will also kickstart the expanding Internet of things. This could be a privacy and security nightmare but... Read more

Cisco buys Luxtera

Cisco is to buy the photonics IC specialist Luxtera for $660 million. “Our customers are looking to address the unrelenting demand for more bandwidth driven by an emerging class of distributed cloud, mobility, and IoT applications,’ says Cisco’s Rob Salvagno (pictured), “simply put, the exponentially growing demands on the network require a new era of … This story continues at Cisco buys Luxtera Or just coverage at Electronics Weekly Read more

Microcontroller secures IoT endpoint devices

Analogue capability and security functions in the Renesas Synergy S1JA microcontroller, target sensor signal acquisition and conditioning to simplify industrial instrumentation, multi-sensory systems and single-phase electrical meters, says RS Components. The low power microcontroller is based on a 48MHz Arm Cortex-M23 processor core with 256kb code flash and 32kb SRAM.

IMUs help devices navigate safely

Mouser stocks the ADIS1647x precision industrial inertial measurement units (IMUs) from Analog Devices.  The IMUs can be used in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) devices, as well as for navigation in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), autonomous vehicles, smart agricultural equipment as well as industrial and IoT devices. The IMUs deliver six degrees of freedom sensing, … This story continues at IMUs help devices navigate safely Or just coverage at Electronics... Read more

Simple Record and Playback

This project allows you to “record” sensory input and store it for later use. The information is stored in EEPROM instead of dynamic memory so that it can be remembered even when the board is shut down (like a tiny hard drive).Materials:Arduino – https://amzn.to/2DLjxR2Breadboard – https://amzn.to…By: millerman4487 Read more
