The voice of machine learning starts and ends with humans
The voice of machine learning starts and ends with humans

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents new opportunities for manufacturers to capitalize on the value of data for their business. One of those opportunities is through leveraging an approach called machine learning, which is a branch of artificial intelligence that enables machines (or virtual representations of machines in the cloud) to learn new behaviors based on their external environments, internal health, and changing inputs.

Easily Verify Electromechanical Systems with PSpice + MATLAB and Simulink Integration

Perform MATLAB and Simulink behavioral-level modeling and analysis and use PSpice® analog and mixed-signal simulation in a single, integrated system design and debug environment.

Access any IoT “thing” anywhere with MQTT
Access any IoT “thing” anywhere with MQTT

MQTT is a simple protocol that lets an embedded device publish/receive messages in the cloud. It has minimal packet overhead compared to protocols like HTTP and is therefore very efficient, lending itself to low-power environments.

The landscape of wireless things: Business dynamics, vertical markets, LPWA technology, and industry challenges
The landscape of wireless things: Business dynamics, vertical markets, LPWA technology, and industry challenges

LPWA networks are designed to support machine-to-machine (M2M) applications with low data rates that are able to sustain long battery lives and operate unattended for years. There are many LPWA technologies, including NB-IoT, LoRa, and Sigfox.

Extend system longevity with Xeon-based industrial engines
Extend system longevity with Xeon-based industrial engines

Industrial designers have long been handicapped by the longevity challenge, struggling to pair server-class performance with extended-life systems. It’s been the norm to sacrifice longevity, using commercially available workstation products to accommodate steadily-increasing performance and storage needs.

The IoT and IIoT need embedded analytics to make sense of all this multidisciplinary data
The IoT and IIoT need embedded analytics to make sense of all this multidisciplinary data

Embedded analytics are now being integrated into many business applications, such as customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP). Currently, business intelligence vendors, such as Tableau Software and Sisense among others, develop embedded analytic tools, which are then integrated into business applications by the application developers and provided to the end-users.

Go device to cloud in just 25 kbytes
Go device to cloud in just 25 kbytes

The X-Ware IoT Platform leverages all the benefits of NetX Duo and introduces new IoT protocol support for 6LoWPAN, MQTT, CoAP, LWM2M. Sounds like an alphabet soup of acronyms, but if you’re supporting them, I’m sure you know what they stand for.

Embedded Insiders Podcast: The wide (area) world of IIoT networking

As connectivity becomes cheaper, data becomes more valuable. This is a paradox the Embedded Insiders Rich Nass and Brandon Lewis explore in the context of low-power, wide-area network (LPWAN) standards that have emerged to capture Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connections in the face of sunsetting 2G infrastructure.

Chip antennas fit new NB-IoT standard
Chip antennas fit new NB-IoT standard

Antenova has developed an antenna for the new Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) standard. The antenna measures just 20 by 11 by 1.6 mm, and is built such that it can perform well within a device, whilst being easy to integrate onto a small PCB.

NFC tag type 2 integrates UART and GPIOs
NFC tag type 2 integrates UART and GPIOs

The SIC4310 can be defined as an NFC type 2 tag, and conforms with the ISO14443A communication protocol. Not only is it an NFC tag, but the SIC4310 also has a UART interface and 8 GPIO pins that can be connected to many sensors, as well as microcontrollers for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
