The Role Of AI And Endpoint Real-Time Data Analytics


The Internet of Things (IoT) has the capability of amassing large amounts of data which it does with the help of dispersed intelligent sensors. The organization and distribution of this enormous amount of data is posing a challenge. While conventional methods of data analysis have facilitated the operations in IoT, artificial intelligence (AI) has proven that it can do it with greater precision... » read more

Chip Substitutions Raising Security Concerns


Substituting chips is becoming more common in the electronics industry as shortages drag on, allowing systems vendors to continue selling everything from cars to manufacturing equipment and printer cartridges without waiting for a commoditized part. But substitutions aren't always an even swap, and they increase security risks in ways that may take years to show up or fully understand. So fa... » read more

Digitalizing Water Monitoring


Managing water resources has always been important, but that monitoring is becoming increasingly high-tech and much more useful. Rather than a spot check at the tap, or a crude measurement of water levels in a reservoir, chips are making it possible to monitor and measure water quantity and quality at the source, wherever it is stored, the spigot, and in the wastewater systems. As climate ch... » read more

EZ-PD PMG1 High Voltage MCU As A Coprocessor For Embedded Applications


EZ-PD™ PMG1, a family of High Voltage Microcontrollers (MCUs) with USB-C Power Delivery (PD), supports embedded firmware engineers and system designers to adopt USB-C into applications such as smart speakers, IoT hubs, home appliances, internet gateways, power and garden tools. This article targets embedded firmware engineers and system designers interested in including USB-C in their em... » read more

High-Performance SerDes Enable The 5G Wireless Edge


Investment at the core of the global internet is red hot. The number of hyperscale data centers jumped to 700 worldwide at the end of 2021, and with more than 300 in the pipeline, should rise to over 1000 by 20241. In the span of five years, total hyperscale data centers will have doubled. And as the raw number shoots up, more powerful compute and networking hardware is rapidly being deployed, ... » read more

Preventing A $500 Attack Destroying Your IoT Devices


Internet of Things (IoT) smart devices numbering in the billions and connected via the internet are increasingly vital to society and the global economy. However, the very “connectedness” that makes IoT devices so valuable can be turned to an enormous liability if these devices are left unprotected from security-related threats. This paper explores the threat environment faced by, and the c... » read more

Why Comparing Processors Is So Difficult


Every new processor claims to be the fastest, the cheapest, or the most power frugal, but how those claims are measured and the supporting information can range from very useful to irrelevant. The chip industry is struggling far more than in the past to provide informative metrics. Twenty years ago, it was relatively easy to measure processor performance. It was a combination of the rate at ... » read more

Why Data Center Power Will Never Come Down


Data centers have become significant consumers of energy. In order to deal with the proliferation of data centers and the servers within them, there is a big push to reduce the energy consumption of all data center components. With all that effort, will data center power really come down? The answer is no, despite huge improvements in energy efficiency. “Keeping data center power consum... » read more

Why Does “Matter” Matter?


There is a good chance that you have come across "Matter" in recent news related to IoT and smart home. Matter was everywhere at CES 2022, and smart home ecosystems all talk about Matter when launching new devices. Matter helps IoT devices like your coffee maker and smart speaker talk to each other easily so that you as the end user don’t need to read complex user manuals or become an IoT con... » read more

An Event-Driven and Fully Synthesizable Architecture for Spiking Neural Networks


Abstract:  "The development of brain-inspired neuromorphic computing architectures as a paradigm for Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the edge is a candidate solution that can meet strict energy and cost reduction constraints in the Internet of Things (IoT) application areas. Toward this goal, we present μBrain: the first digital yet fully event-driven without clock architecture, with co-lo... » read more
