It’s (Not) All Fun and Games

More Girl Engineers, Video Games and Chinese Take-Out

In my Fish Fry this week, I report on a new scholarship that will help get more female students interested in engineering, delve into the historical importance of video game pioneer Jerry Lawson and check out Altium’s plans to move their operations base to Shanghai.  I also award a special bonus prize to last week’s nerdy giveaway winner and offer up a brand new contest for this week.  

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.

Vibration Sensing with LoRaWAN

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Advantech

Vibration sensing is an integral part of today’s connected industrial designs but Bluetooth, WiFi, and Zigbee may not be the best solution for this kind of sensing in an industrial setting. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Andrew Lund about LoRaWAN for vibration sensing. They investigate why LoRaWAN is perfect for industrial vibration sensing, the role that standards play in these kinds of systems, and why 3 axis detection and real-time monitoring can make all the difference in your next industrial design.
