I was just being funny.... I don't even use an oscilloscope, but I stumbled into that video and thought it might be a good resource to share. I do sympathize with people trying to learn new subjects, Sometimes it seems like there is too much info on the internet, a lot of it very specialized, and it can be difficult just trying to find a GENERAL INTRO on something that covers the bases without going too deep. That is one reason I appreciate DigiKey and Max for doing a series like this.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
