A Kit of Its Own: Voler Systems’ Health-Sensor Platform

There’s a reason why I’m sitting in a conference room located on the second floor of a small Sunnyvale office building across the street from the Sunken Gardens Golf Course. I’m sitting across the table from Voler Systems’ president Walt Maclay with a pulse plethysmograph optical sensor (that’s an infrared photoelectric sensor used to record changes in pulsatile blood flow from a … Read More → "A Kit of Its Own: Voler Systems’ Health-Sensor Platform"

The Challenge of Systemic Complexity

We’re tackling the multi-faceted challenges of embedded software development in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. Simon Davidmann (CEO – Imperas) joins us to discuss how familiar debug environments can make all the difference in complex designs and why RISC-V architecture is gaining traction in the EE ecosystem. Next up, Rupert Baines (CEO – UltraSoC) joins us to chat about the details of their “Smart Monitor” … Read More → "The Challenge of Systemic Complexity"

Adventures in Micro Land

In this week’s Fish Fry, we’re following a microcontroller yellow brick road to a land where analog reigns supreme. Dave Smith (Texas Instruments) joins us to discuss the details of the “Smart Analog Combo” included in in the MSP430 family, the benefits of the configurable signal-chain elements inherent in this solution, and why the … Read More → "Adventures in Micro Land"

Full-Power WiFi at Half the Power

In IoTland, communication is king. It puts the Internet in the IoT. But how to communicate? LTE? BlueTooth? WiFi? It partly depends on the application and the location, but it also depends on how far you are from a wall plug.

Because many IoT devices are small, portable, and – this is key – battery-powered, they will forever be infinitely far away from the wall plug. While WiFi has … Read More → "Full-Power WiFi at Half the Power"
