Jan 25 - Part 5. Today’s Smart Sensors
Continuing Education Center 
1/25/2013  187 comments
This tutorial provides information on what sensors are available today and insight into the types of sensors that are under development.
Jan 24 - Part 4. Transitioning From Analog Sensing to the Digital Control World
Continuing Education Center 
1/24/2013  223 comments
If you are not familiar with the problems that are involved with applying the output of an analog sensor to a digital control system, find out from our expert in this session.
Jan 23 - Part 3. A Case Study of Smart Sensor Development.
Continuing Education Center 
1/23/2013  224 comments
In this tutorial, our lecturer discusses the development of a smart sensor from concept (including the physics of the base sensor) through the design tradeoffs and manufacturability issues to deployment.
Jan 22 - Part 2. Basics of Sensor Compensation for Capacitive Sensors.
Continuing Education Center 
1/22/2013  213 comments
This tutorial explores the techniques and available options that simplify users’ design-in of capacitive sensors, which have more complex requirements than piezoresistive sensors.
Jan 21 - Part 1. Basics of Sensor Compensation for Piezoresistive Sensors.
Continuing Education Center 
1/21/2013  175 comments
In this session our expert addresses calibration, linearization, and signal integrity techniques for perhaps the most common sensing technique, piezoresistive sensors.
Jan 18 - Part 5. Advanced Example Designs
Continuing Education Center 
1/18/2013  204 comments
The review of some example designs with widely different low-power requirements will help solidify the main concepts and capabilities the modern low-power MCUs offer designers. The key low-power requirements of each design will be identified and matched with the key MCU capabilities needed to create efficient implementations.
Jan 17 - Part 4. Extending Battery Lifetime
Continuing Education Center 
1/17/2013  207 comments
Once the key concepts and capabilities of low-power MCUs are understood it is sometimes critical to use them to achieve a target battery lifetime. Understanding both the key concepts behind extending battery lifetime and the techniques for estimating battery lifetime is critical in achieving the most aggressive design requirements.
Jan 16 - Part 3. Low-Power Peripherals
Continuing Education Center 
1/16/2013  224 comments
Once the MCU low-power modes are understood it is important to understand how to most efficiently use the MCU peripherals. Modern low-power MCUs have special peripheral features that can assist in reducing power. A detailed look at these features is required to create more efficient designs.
Jan 15 - Part 2. Low-Power Modes in Detail
Continuing Education Center 
1/15/2013  246 comments
Effective use of the low-power modes (like Sleep, Stop, Snooze, and Standby) in modern MCUs is one of the most important ways to achieve the most power-efficient design. Knowing when and how to use these modes requires a detailed look at the advantages and disadvantages of these capabilities.
Jan 14 - Part 1. Introduction: Low-Power MCU Concepts & Capabilities
Continuing Education Center 
1/14/2013  282 comments
Modern MCUs have a variety of features that support very low-power operation. In order to get the most out of these new capabilities we will first review common concepts (like special low-power operating modes) and common capabilities (like special peripheral operations) that most modern low-power MCUs share.

Thanksgiving is a time for family. A time for togetherness. A time for… tech?
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.
Made by Monkeys highlights products that somehow slipped by the QC cops.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
