Distributed Analytics Beyond the Cloud Charles Byers
Analytics, AI, and ML are typically implemented as centralized functions in networks, often residing in the cloud. There is a growing trend to distribute these learning and inference functions between cloud, edge, and endpoint computer capabilities. Here, we’ll look at some of the tradeoffs involved.

How IoT System Design Makes a Difference Sravani Bhattacharjee
In highly competitive IoT markets, it is hard to ensure secure design without tilting tight pricing and time-to-market. We’ll discuss a systematic, full-stack approach that simplifies security design for IoT systems by leveraging various security enabler solutions.

ZigBee vs. Z-Wave: What’s the Difference? Tyler Wojciechowicz
With a myriad of IoT products available, consumers and engineers are left to wonder which technology best suits their needs. Popular IoT ecosystems ZigBee and Z-Wave offer two unique solutions to this design question. Learn how their specifications differ to decide the optimal use for your application.

Robotic Irrigation Reduces Farming Costs Charles Byers
Growing corn, wheat, alfalfa, cotton, and vegetables can be energy and labor intensive. Let’s examine a system that works like a center-pivot irrigation system but adds a rail and robotic implements that pass above the field to plant, cultivate, and harvest without any labor or fossil fuels.

Why Nanotechnology Improves Sensors Liam Critchley
There is always a need to increase the capabilities of sensors. One effective way to do this is by employing nanomaterials as the ‘sensing surface’ or ‘sensing component’. Learn how the many beneficial surface, electronic, and structural properties of nanomaterials can make sensors more accurate.

Robots to Take Over Manhole Cleaning Adil Abdul Kareem
In a promising example of how robots are replacing manual labor in unsafe places, a startup has built a state-of-the art machine that cleans drains efficiently.

Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) Bolsters Industrial Control Sravani Bhattacharjee
Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is a new connectivity technology that extends the promise of Industrial IoT to time-sensitive industrial control and actuation systems. This blog provides an in-depth understanding of TSN principles and functionalities to design next-generation Ethernet products.

Bluetooth® mesh & Home Automation Robert Huntley
Bluetooth® mesh networking promises to accelerate home automation design and deployment. This blog explores the basics of Bluetooth mesh and describes how Cypress is well-equipped with the products, development tools, and source code examples to help speed your design.

Video Everywhere: What Happens When Projectors Get Really Cheap? Charles Byers
Video cameras have dropped in price by three orders of magnitude in the last couple of decades. What if video projectors followed a similar path? Where would we put those little, cheap projectors? How would massively parallel arrays of projectors be used? What sorts of new services could result?

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.
