Designers of embedded applications are pretty much spoilt for choice nowadays. They have many opportunities to choose from. With the ARM® mbed™ IoT Device Platform developers are able to easily build IoT devices and applications. With microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics – partner of ARM mbed – they will additionally benefit from extensive expertise in MCU architecture, technology and multi-source manufacturing. Developers of embedded applications and devices can release their creativity with the STM32 family. The 32-bit Flash microcontrollers are based on the ARM Cortex®-M processor and combine high performance, real-time capabilities,Read More
Ant Man NXP
A smarter world needs secure connections enabled by products that deliver performance, security and flexibility. For processors this means to get smaller and more powerful at the samt time. It seems NXP has found the Ant-Man-Suit and instead of giving it to a superhero they have fitted it to the new QorIQ LS1012A processor. The results are impressive: The QorIQ LS1012A is the world’s smallest and lowest power 64-bit processor, delivering networking-grade security and performance acceleration to battery-powered, space-constrained IoT applications. NXP’s newest innovation just got launched during the NXPRead More
The CES delivered big time with tons of new healthcare devices – but how to make sense of all the new stuff presented at the show? We took some time to look at the mass of new ideas and innovations and sorted out the most important trends for the healthcare segment hidden in the flood of new gadgets. New Players Will Disrupt The Market While we observed that many of the former startups like FitBit or Withings seem to have grown up and now represent well-established companies there are twoRead More
STMicroelectronics STM32L4 MCUs which have been announced earlier this year are now available! Why are we telling you his? Because you can do some really awesome stuff with those! The MCU is optimised for battery operated devices and scored record breaking 153 in the standardised EEMBC™ ULPBench® tests that compare the efficiency of ultra-low-power microcontrollers – proof enough that this ultra-low power wonder will certainly keep your applications alive as long as possible. So what to do with it? Throw it into your next wearable or even use it in IndustryRead More
Developing for the IoT? You could be one of thousand others having the same idea as the hype around connectivity of objects is on! However the new MAREN reference design platform might be exactly the advantage you need to develop the next big thing faster than the others. The EBV Solutions team tailored the new high performance and low power sensor hub specifically to address requirements of IoT applications. MAREN is equipped with MEMS sensors (motion and environmental), BLE and NFC connectivity as well as sensor processing algorithms (sensor fusion). The EBV MAREN high performance &Read More
