Another consideration worth mentioning is the use of ramp tables to drive stepper motors. In certain applications, depending upon motor type, performance requirements, loading and operating speed, ramp tables are used to gradually 'ramp' up from a slower speed to the faster speed. This helps prevent the motor from stalling as it goes up to the faster speeds (which typically have different torque values than the slower speeds).
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
