Use the Renesas AE-CLOUD2 to Send GPS Data to the Google Cloud IoT Greg Toth
Use this kit to prototype sensor and location tracking applications that connect to the Google Cloud IoT via Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or LTE Cat-M1/Cat-NM1/EGPRS LTE cellular networks. Create applications that read sensors, connect to the Internet, and communicate real-time sensor data to the Google Cloud.

Connecting to the Google Cloud IoT with the AVR-IoT WG Eval Board Greg Toth
The Microchip AC164160 AVR-IoT WG Evaluation Board allows you to prototype sensor applications using a secure-element cryptographic coprocessor and low-power microcontroller to securely connect to the Google Cloud IoT.

Integrating the STM32L4 Discovery Kit IoT Node with the Google Cloud Platform Using Wi-Fi Greg Toth
The STMicroelectronics STM32L4 Discovery Kit for IoT Node Discovery Kit is an Internet of Things (IoT) development kit that is ideal for prototyping sensor applications with wireless connectivity to the Google Cloud IoT.

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.

Mouser’s STEAMy Summer: Part 1 of 3 Mike Parks
This STEAM-inspired three-article series will explore the available resources to assist you and your kids on a maker’s adventure and walk you through an embedded electronics project. We will cover the design, build, and code for the project as well as discuss how the data from the project can be useful to develop analytical and critical thinking skills.

New Touch Encoder Technology Makes User Experience More Intuitive Grayhill, Inc.
Industrial designers are always looking for ways to improve user interface controls by combining functionalities of rotary switches, pushbuttons, trackballs, potentiometers, and touchscreens. In doing so, they can save on component costs and streamline the user experience. Now, Touch Encoder technology is available that helps modernize and simplify designs, while also making it much easier to support applications with multiple languages or configurations.

Arduino: Three Powerful Yet Overlooked Uses Daniel Hankewycz
Most engineers cringe when they see an Arduino in my toolbox. What they don't realize is the powerful “shape shifting” tool that this low-cost development board is. Let's look at three commonly overlooked uses for an Arduino: Digital logic analyzer, AVR programmer, and UART to USB interface.

Open Source Reinvents the Keyboard Bruce Byfield
Open source developers are rethinking the traditional mechanical keyboard. New releases, such as the Keyboardio Model 01, display an aesthetically pleasing, ergonomic, programmable, customizable, and quiet mechanical keyboard as an alternative to high-end proprietary keyboards.
