Don’t let hackers in the JTAG port
Don’t let hackers in the JTAG port

If you’ve been watching the ongoing discussions about security in the Internet of Things, you know that protecting your devices means that you should authenticate anyone trying to gain access to your device.

Spice Up Your Virtual Prototyping.

Sure your design can go to manufacturing? Save time and lower costs by simulating with PSpice® to find failures early in design.

Bluetooth extends the IoT potential
Bluetooth extends the IoT potential

The Bluetooth spec has evolved very nicely, with versions that support low power and versions that support higher data rates. With those compatible specs, the applications that are available to designers are quite varied, starting with medical, where devices could include hearing aids, real-time locating systems, heart monitors, glucose meters, dosage/dispensing control, and so on.
