Any need for application developers for DEVelopment Kit Architecture, Design and Implementation?  See related question below ...

Is there an industry need for a ZigBee Certification test agency or certified tester recognition to not only provide the obvious technical compatability and other cert issues, but also consulting, turn-around or cost related issues.  For example, can one join ZigBee alliance and develop a Cert Testing/Certification Consultancy that does the certification testing ...

 

 

 I would prefer to see a button press or some other more robust mechanical - pill release mechanism that counts and semi-tamper / OD proofs any sort of medication.  It seems like with any spec, if you touch it, you (may / can) incur liability, fitness for intention, implied warranty and etc.

 

Good presentation -- all through the 5 sessions, doubly so when coupled with the ISM class.  I would like to see a slide or two with a high level flow diagram of network design process - from spec'ing out a system, chip/module selection, firmware issues, tradeoffs, implementation ideas ... network architecture issues, and thru commissioning on to test and eval (toss in compliance and cert too maybe) ...

 

Sub 60 minute classes work fine (maybe 50 minute limits) for archived functions and would be acceptable for most online presentations I have participated in ... not sure if more than 30 minutes interferes with some attendees lunch periods or interest / attention levels ...

Done with semester 2

Rob sounds terrible...

Thanks for your insights--Enjoy holidays

Thanks all for your participation - I look forward to "seeing" you in future classes here at the Digi-Key CEC!! Thanks again Rob - honey lemon tea!  That is my cure (real honey and real lemon juice - no coffee and no alcohol)

Iron

Have I missed any questions?

 

Iron

Home power - my own devices (grin) - have not used a commercial one yet.

Iron

The one q I see is about where the test 'sniffer' goes for analysis.  Anywhere within range of the PAN coordinator.  I like to put it in the center of the physical network.  It is not a node (although some silicon-mfr-provided ones tap into the coordinator, I don't like that.  It is like scope probe capacitance - can fix or break a network!

Iron

Charles Thanks. Any experience with in home power monitoring, what are some better devices?

 

No experience with ZigBee yet, though it will be interesting to have a network project with Zigbee

I currently work with BT low energy SoC from TI

Does anyone has any experience with Parallax 32440-RT XBee? Is it good platform to consider for RF experiments at 802.15.4?

I recently discovered products from Schmartboard that permit soldering SOIC chips or even 100-pin chips onto a 0.1" pitch breakout board.  Great for prototyping.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
