The explosion of connected devices presents embedded designers with new challenges.
Energy-harvesting technologies with power management ICs eliminate the need for batteries, removing an obstacle to the success of the Internet of Things.
Smart sensors powered by energy harvesting directly command local devices to simplify local IoT control
System-on-module board simplifies evaluation of different memory types to minimize the time and optimize performance
For designers, a diverse set of wireless connectivity options provides the glue that holds IoT together.
The right balance of NOR flash and NAND flash memory delivers ultrafast boot times for even sophisticated automotive instrumentation
Adding I2C communications functionality to power management IC simplifies design and reduces leakage current.
Also, bit banging SPI, diagnosing intermittent RDID failure, and the mystery of MSL and RoHS ratings.
