Addressing the need for more secure products in an IoT-enabled world
Addressing the need for more secure products in an IoT-enabled world

While security vulnerabilities are problematic in any situation, with IoT applications, safety can become an issue when security is compromised because some of them power safety-critical products such as medical devices, automobiles, manufacturing equipment, and more.

Get smart about smart home gateways
Get smart about smart home gateways

In the smart home, many manufacturers view gateways as an appealing central controller for their connected-home products. But gateways have certain limitations, and they aren’t appropriate for all situations. Manufacturers need to evaluate whether an IoT, or smart home, gateway supports their overall IoT strategies.

How to reduce energy consumption when using an IoT connection
How to reduce energy consumption when using an IoT connection

Gartner states that more than half of major new business processes and systems will incorporate some element of the Internet of Things (IoT) by 2020. Although some applications, such as connected home, will invariably use mainline power, others will require a battery that can be recharged. For these devices, engineers must focus on creating an energy budget that accounts for the power consumption of the radio powering the connection.

zigbee’s dotdot makes IoT edge devices interoperable with multiple RF connectivity support

Even though zigbee is best known as an open wireless communications protocol for home IoT products, dotdot is intended for use with any wireless technology. It defines how devices communicate with each other about what they can do, which is important for making different objects around a home do things together.

Embedded Insiders Podcast: Is RISC-V risky business?

Researchers at Princeton recently found memory consistency errors in the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), an extensible, open-source ISA spawned out of academia that is being adopted by industry in the development of everything from Internet of Things (IoT) microcontrollers (MCUs) to data center processors. While certain media outlets have sensationalized these findings, the Embedded Insiders ask Rick O’Connor, Executive Director of the RISC-V Foundation for the real scoop.
