Technologies to Watch in 2013: What’s Next from Mouser
2012 saw many advances in the technological world, such as a new unmanned vehicle that roamed the landscape of Mars, an unmanned vehicle which legally roamed the streets of California, and a technology giant that got people completely lost on those same streets. Closer to home, 2012 also brought ARM deeper inroads into embedded design and a new standard that gave us gigabit – per - second throughput over wireless LAN. 2013 is sure to bring similar innovations to the forefront. Mouser asked industry experts and contributing authors to examine what 2013 holds in store in six key technology areas.
- Jack Gannsle looks at whether or not the ARM Cortex ™-M series will put the squeeze on 8-bit and 16-bit MCUs in embedded design this year.
- Jack Shandle helps decipher the different wireless protocols and where this technology may take design in 2013.
- Jon Gabay shines a light on established 12V solar architectures to see if they will survive beyond the end of the year.
- Chris A. Ciufo examines one of the fastest growing segments of solid state lighting design in 2013: Automotive.
- David Carey goes under the hood of automotive electronics design: Will the proliferation of electronics in cars finally make power management a major issue for designers in 2013?
- Bryon Moyer investigates 2013 trends in power efficiency and doing more with less.
