Pull Up Your Pins: How to Size Pull-up Resistors Mike Parks
Whether to prevent floating I/O pins on an MCU or to provide an interface between two circuits, pull-up resistors are a necessity. But what size resistor should you use?

Halloween Frights and Delights: Engineering Horror Stories Lynnette Reese
I recently commented to a colleague that engineers either learn by “letting the smoke out” of something (breaking it) or they can learn vicariously through another’s mistakes, if the mistake is catastrophic enough. I don’t have a lot of these, but I have noticed that engineering horror stories are effective training tools and often funny.

Surface Area Management of Embedded Devices through Host and Network Based Firewalls Jeff Fellinge
Lower the risk of a successful attack on your network-connected devices by understanding the network ports and protocols they use and disabling or filtering those they do not need.

Unraveling the Gordian Knot of IoT Security Stephen Evanczuk
Manufacturers may well find that even the most robust technological solutions to IoT security aren’t enough.

Master Chocolate, Army Knives, and Multi-Dev Tools Paul Golata
Imagine bringing the Swiss Army knife concept into the engineering lab and applying it to development tools. Taking inspiration from Switzerland and its most loved products, a new multifunction lab tool emerges that can replace a number of test and measurement instruments. What does this mean for engineers, hobbyists, and students? Let’s take a look.

Mouser’s STEAMy Summer: Part 3 Mike Parks
For part 3 of “Mouser’s STEAMy Summer” series, we will go through each step to build the circuit and program the Arduino MKR1000 for your ultraviolet (UV) monitor and alert project so that you and your young, aspiring engineer can protect your family when you’re out enjoying the sun.

Mouser’s STEAMy Summer: Part 2 Mike Parks
In part 1 of our STEAMy summer blog, we talked about the resources available for parents and kids to explore STEAM topics so that they can develop hands-on embedded electronics skills through project-based learning. Now in part 2, we will dive into designing and coding an UV monitor and alert buzzer.

A Look Forward at the Trends Shaping AI Paul Golata
Many people harbor concerns about the role AI will play in the future. Though we do not yet have to fear machines rising up to completely replace humanity, we must change and adapt to meet the reality of a future in which AI technology emerges as increasingly more integral to the world in which we live.

Dual, Segmented Routers Ideal for Transit System Traffic Phil Hipol
Public transportation Wi-Fi networks pose several engineering challenges in providing fast and reliable service between vehicles, infrastructures, and machines. Dual, segmented routers provide the bandwidth, connectivity, and power essential for this application.

Multi-Sensor Modules Ease Indoor Agriculture Design Challenges Steven Keeping
Multi-sensor modules, such as TE Connectivity’s AmbiMate, are simplifying the engineering involved in the global enterprise of controlled-environment agriculture (popularly known as vertical farming).
