Easy Math That Explains Why Accurate IoT Current Measurement is Hard

by Keysight Technologies

The never-ending drive to increase IoT battery life is great for customers, but it poses extraordinary challenges for design engineers. As sleep mode currents edge ever-closer to zero, the challenge of making measurements across a wide dynamic range becomes increasingly difficult.

Two Radio Signals, One Chip, Open a New World for Wireless Communication

by Cornell University

Cornell engineers have devised a method for transmitting and receiving radio signals on a single chip, which could ultimately help change the way wireless communication is done. Separating the send and receive bands is difficult enough, but the problem is compounded by the ever-increasing number of bands in the latest devices, which handle everything wireless technology has to offer. From GPS to Bluetooth to Wi-Fi, each band requires a filter to stop the strong transmit signals from drowning out reception.

Managing Windows 10 IoT Devices


Digital transformation starts with creating your Internet of Things by building on the infrastructure you already have in place, using familiar devices and services in new ways, and incorporating the right technology. 

To be successful in your digital transformation, your business must choose a platform designed for the key attributes of intelligent devices. Intelligent devices must possess natural and intuitive user interfaces to enable ease of interaction for the users. They must have robust security with the systems they connect to and strong protection of the data stored on the device and the data transmitted to and from the device. In order to be able to communicate with a multitude of other devices effectively, an intelligent device must also be interoperable and service-enabled. And it has to be easy to deploy and manage without extra burden.

Windows 10 IoT Core Azure Connectivity and Security


Connecting devices and services raises an important question: Can I trust that the information comes from the right source and can only be read by the intended recipient? It is essential that the identity of the receiving device or service is trusted even if the data sent is not confidential. For example, if a process decision depends on data from a temperature sensor, then security measures must ensure the cloud service only accepts information from the trusted sensor and that the sensor has not been compromised. In some cases, malicious attackers may spoof the identity of devices like the temperature sensor. Thus, security measures must work to prevent the cloud service from receiving data from a stolen identity.
