Securing legacy embedded systems in the IoT
Securing legacy embedded systems in the IoT

Even if we start installing well-secured devices today, it is not practical or even possible to retrofit or replace those already in place. We can’t put the Internet of Things genie back in the bottle, so what do we do?

IoT Development Kit Guide

A tool to assist embedded and Internet of Things design engineers in efficiently identifying evaluation kits for system prototyping.

Determine Which Processor is Right for your IoT Application - Day 1 of "Processors 101 with Intel Atom"

All processors are the same, right? Well, not exactly. In fact, they vary greatly in terms of price, performance, power consumption, and a host of other features that can make or break your design. In Day 1 of this three-part class, we will go over different design requirements and where the Intel Atom processor fits. Then we'll get into the feature set that's best for your specific IoT application: performance, security, media processing, image processing, time coordinated, computing, etc. Day 1 sponsored by Intel.

Growing the Internet of Things, part 2: Ease of use
Growing the Internet of Things, part 2: Ease of use

In part 1, I addressed the issue of Cost in the IoT for consumers using connected LED light bulbs as an example. Now, I turn the conversation to the next big challenge facing the growth of IoT: Ease of Use.

Improving GNSS performance with "crowd sourcing" and cellular networks

To obtain a precise location, GNSS positioning systems require signals from four satellites. However, errors can still result from the satellite signal being obstructed, for example by a tunnel or when transiting through an urban canyon. Fortunately, though, there are other ways to calculate position.

Help! The big guys are stuffing standards down my throat

Standards are (too) often defined by the larger vendors and they often do so by circumventing the normal channels, simply because they have enough weight to throw around to make this happen. Is this fair and is it a good thing?
