Security by Obscurity No Longer

WikiLeaks and the Future of IoT Security

You will not see it coming. When your back is turned, it will rise up behind you. When it hits, without question, it’s taking you down with it. In nature, it’s called a sneaker wave. In the world of EE, it’s called a security attack. In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at the ramifications of the recent WikiLeaks IoT security breach documents with Icon Labs CEO Alan Grau. Alan and I investigate the issues surrounding security in legacy IoT devices, and the hardware and software solutions we should explore as engineers in our IoT designs. Keeping with our IoT theme, we also check out a hilarious announcement from ByteSnap Designs and a new wearable development from ON Semiconductor.

Understanding Functional Safety FIT Base Failure Rate Estimates per IEC 62380 and SN 29500

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Functional safety standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 require semiconductor device manufacturers to address both systematic and random hardware failures. Base failure rates (BFR) quantify the intrinsic reliability of the semiconductor component while operating under normal environmental conditions. Download our white paper which focuses on two widely accepted techniques to estimate the BFR for semiconductor components; estimates per IEC Technical Report 62380 and SN 29500 respectively.

Thermocouple Temperature Sensor Solution

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

When it comes to temperature monitoring and management, industrial applications can be extremely demanding. With temperatures that can range from 270 to 3000 C, consumer-grade temperature probes just don’t cut it. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ezana Haile of Microchip technology about using thermocouples for temperature monitoring in industrial applications.
