How Device Inventory and Dependency Management Help Secure Larger Systems Jeff Fellinge
Building and maintaining a solid inventory of all on-premise and cloud-based assets with helpful metadata is a critical step to ensuring your security programs include all of your systems.

Keeping the Lights On: ESD and Thermal Protection for LED Lighting Systems TDK Corporation
There are several factors that can affect solid-state lighting including stress, packaging-related, and component-related issues. Discover the key threats that affect the reliability of LED lighting systems.

Threat Modeling Your Device Operations Helps Identify Unwanted Exposure Jeff Fellinge
Discover potential vulnerabilities and predict how your devices, network, and operations would survive an attack by performing regular threat modeling.

Connected-Home Tech Falls Short but the Future is Bright Steven Keeping
While smart-home devices are gaining traction, the truly connected home remains a dream. Engineers are working on interim solutions to meld disparate wireless technologies, with some success, but a single smart-home solution is far in the future.

Does Wi-Gig Have a Place in Wi-Fi’s Future? Barry Manz
Wi-Gig was created to make very-high-speed file transfers possible over a short distance, but Wi-Fi 6 (802.1ax) is coming and it will do that too, without the challenges presented by the use of millimeter wavelengths.

CES 2019: Defining a New Smarter Society For Us All Mouser Staff
The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) brought together a mind-blowing myriad of different product innovations. With a projected 180,000 people and nearly 4,500 companies attending, there simply isn’t another tech-related event that competes with this in terms of either scale or diversity.

Ushering in the Promise of a New Generation Paul Golata
The next generation of mobile networks and wireless systems—5G—promises to provide connectivity solutions to change and improve lives.

Where Nanotechnology, the IoT, and Industry 4.0 Meet Liam Critchley
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been developing and advancing for many years and has brought around the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, where many processes are now being automated. While it is not obvious, nanotechnology also has a role to play in this new industry.

Beyond Top Secret: The Tech Behind Santa’s Sleigh Mike Parks
Santa Claus has got to be one of the most tech-savvy people in the world. Think about it: Circumnavigating the globe in a single night to deliver gifts to hundreds of millions of children is only possible by integrating some serious technology into his gift-giving empire. Surely his sleigh—the epicenter of this logistical feat—must be packed with cutting-edge electronics to ensure his success year after year. While the exact plans and specifications of his mobile command center are safely locked away at the North Pole, we can make some safe assumptions about the tech onboard.

Harnessing Energy with Nanogenerators Liam Critchley
Different nanogenerators can generate enough electricity to power a small device through kinetic movements within the device, or by harvesting thermal energy. Even though the amount of electricity generated is small, it is enough for many small remote monitoring devices.
