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.

Connecting the SiLabs AMW007 Wi-Fi Module to Medium One IoT Cloud Greg Toth
The SiLabs AMW007 Module adds Wi-Fi networking to development boards like the EFM32 Pearl Gecko PG12 to connect to the cloud-based Medium One IoT Prototyping Sandbox. Together they provide hardware, software, and cloud-based tools to create applications that collect, process, and visualize IoT data.

Pyro Switch: Hidden IR Detection KEMET Electronics
Pyroelectric Infrared (IR) Sensors absorb the infrared rays emitted from the human body and enable the detection of a person’s presence. In this blog, KEMET demonstrates how you can easily add presence detection capabilities to an ordinary object using Arduino and a hidden pyroelectric IR sensor.

Connecting the LPC54018 IoT Module to the Medium One IoT Cloud Greg Toth
The NXP LPC54018 IoT Module allows you to prototype IoT applications that connect to the Medium One IoT Prototyping Sandbox through Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Together they provide the hardware, software, and cloud-based tools needed to develop applications that collect, process, and visualize IoT data

The Future of IoT M. Tim Jones
Bringing internet connectivity to devices has swung the pendulum back from centralized computing to decentralization. IoT and edge computing continue to evolve. Its momentum is changing the world around us. Explore some of the key ideas behind the future of IoT.

Bluetooth® Heads in New Direction Steven Keeping
An upgrade to the Bluetooth® Core Specification, Bluetooth 5.1, adds direction finding capabilities. The enhancement promises much for applications such as indoor navigation, but implementation is challenging even for the experienced RF engineer.

XYZ Made as Easy as ABC: A Look at Tri-Axis Accelerometers Paul Golata
The world is a place full of motion where many things are on the move. Stop for a moment and learn how easy it is to sense motion and movement in three dimensions with Kionix’s KX003-1077 Tri-axis Accelerometers.

5G Enters an Arena All Its Own: AT&T to bring 5G to AT&T Stadium Paul Golata
Taking center stage in 2019 at billionaire Jerry Jones’s AT&T Stadium isn’t simply the world-famous Dallas Cowboys or Country Music Hall of Famer Garth Brooks with his bigger-than-life concert. It’s the arrival of 5G—the fifth-generation of mobile network and wireless system connectivity.

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.

Made to Take the Pressure Paul Golata
Both people and objects can experience pressure—the force applied to an object. Measuring force allows one to objectively know how much force is being applied. Robust and versatile pressure sensors enable better, smaller, and more cost-effective system designs.
