For most, the name "Father Christmas" conjures images of toys and gadgets. But for this gentleman maker, the name brings misery. Be sure to stockpile your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Particle Photons; it's time to catch Saint Nick red-handed.

Connected industrial machines can sense a wide array of information used to make key decisions within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). A sensor within an edge node can be spatially far removed from any data aggregation point. It must connect through a gateway that links edge data with a network.

Integrated RF agile transceivers are not only widely employed in software-defined radio (SDR) architectures in cellular telephone base stations, such as multiservice distributed access system (MDAS) and small cell, but also for wireless HD video transmission for industrial, commercial, and military applications, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

In this multipart industrial IoT series, we will break down and explore the fundamental aspects of the edge node interpretation within the larger IoT framework: sensing, measuring, interpreting, and connecting data, with additional consideration for power management and security.

This project uses a C8051 microcontroller development kit, an accelerometer evaluation board, and Simplicity Studio IDE—all from Silicon Labs—to rather quickly and easily build a motion-detecting alarm system.

This article describes a methodology that automates set up, constraints, and results analysis as designs move from static CDC analysis to formal verification to simulation and avoid manual scripting efforts, thus reducing setup effort and errors.

This article looks at the differences between crystal resonators and oscillators and presents examples that show when choosing crystals over oscillators could increase the total cost of a design.

In this article, we’ll first look at the basics of representing a digital image. Then, we’ll discuss some simple operations that allow us to adjust the brightness and contrast of an image. Finally, we’ll briefly look at the circuit implementation of these operations.
