TE Connectivity experts to analyze the state of IoT in smart homes at Silicon Labs Works With 2020 developer conference

TE experts to hold two-day Virtual Space to discuss IoT one-on-one with conference participants

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – Sept. 3, 2020 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, will be joining the upcoming Works With 2020 smart home conference from Silicon Labs to analyze the state and evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) products.

Works With 2020, a free live online event, that runs Sept. 9-10. Those interested can register here:

During the Silicon Labs Works With 2020 developer conference, John Tuley, IoT business development, TE Sensors business unit and Kenneth Toomey, field application engineer, will be holding a two-day Virtual Space open to anyone who wishes to interact one-on-one. They will be available in TE’s Virtual Space Sept. 9 from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sept. 10 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Works With is the inaugural gathering of the smart home ecosystem and will feature access to over 1,500 smart home developers, including those from Amazon, Google, Samsung, Z-Wave, plus 40 educational sessions exploring techniques for the development of smart home products using wireless protocols such as Bluetooth®, Zigbee, Z-Wave and Thread. The event will feature hands-on workshops, technical sessions and keynote presentations delivered by the engineers behind today’s latest advances in smart home technology.

“We are excited to be part of Works With 2020 alongside other impressive, industry-leading smart home technology providers,” said TE’s Tuley. “In today’s increasingly interconnected world, TE is committed to continuing to meet the safety, productivity, efficiency and sustainability objectives of our customers, especially those in the ever-growing smart home space. As a leader in the sensor industry, our unmatched portfolio of solutions remains vital to the next generation of data-driven technology.”

TE continues to be at the forefront of the sensor industry with a suite of IoT ready sensors for environmental monitoring, leak detection and telehealth applications in the smart home that are compact, reliable and scalable as well as proven to operate efficiently in harsh environments. TE’s precision engineering and robust sensors experience has enabled them to develop some of the smallest and most accurate sensors, including:

  • HTU31, a humidity and temperature sensor: Key features of HTU31 include precision engineering that keeps a strict linear response curve through humidity (0-100%) and temperature (-40° to 125°C), respectively; a fast response time of t63% in 5 sec; and sustained performance, low hysteresis and precise environment measurement even when exposed to high temperature, high humidity or condensation event. It is available in both digital and analog versions.
  • TSYS03, an ultra-compact digital temperature sensor: TSYS03 is available in two different sizes – TDFN8 2.5 mm x 2.5mm and ultra-small XDFN6 1.5mm x 1.5mm. Its small size enables lower thermal response time, which equates to fast temperature readings, while its improved ASIC design and reduced package size allows for an exceptional price-to-performance ratio.  Additionally, TSYS03 has an enlarged supply voltage range of 2.4V to 5.5V. Thanks to its low current consumption (stand-by <0.3µA), the TSYS03 can be used in battery applications for years without recharging or battery replacement.
  • 8911, a compact wireless accelerometer: The 8911 combines a sensor, data collector and a LoRaWAN™ radio into one compact, battery-operated device. This compact sensor is designed with a corrosion resistant stainless steel case and plastic covering and performs well in harsh environments. It uses a piezo sensing element, which has the advantage of high bandwidth and ultra-low power vs MEMS solutions, that enables longer battery life of up to 10 years and ultra-low sleep power usage.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.
