IoT sensor design gets stable voltage from AA battery

Recom is offering a breakout board to connect the SensorTile from STMicroelectronics to its R-78S evaluation board. The design allows the SensorTile to draw a stable 3.3V from a AA battery down to voltages as low as 0.65V. The R-78S3.3-0.1-EVM-1/STM-1 board can be used with the STEVAL STLCS01V1 SensorTile module and the R-78S3.3-0.1-EVM-1 evaluation module. According to Recom, when powered ...

Embedded World: Pico’s data logger software gets complete re-design

Pico-Tech-PicoLog

UK test equipment maker Pico Technology revealed a ground-up redesign of its data logging software at Embedded World. Designed to work with all of the firm’s PC-based data acquisition hardware, the PicoLog 6 is functionally-identical running on Windows, Linux or MacOS. Record limits are up from the 1Mpoints of PicoLog 5, and are now only limited by the PCs disc ...

Supermicro-edge-PC

Supermicro was showing several new products amongst its existing range of servers and edge PCs at Embedded World in Nuremberg. Based on Intel’s Xeon D-2146NT 8 core 16 thread processor is the SYS-5019D-FN8TP rackmount server that, into a 1U high chassis, squeezes two 2.5in or four 2.5in drivesand up to 512Gbyte of ECC LRDIMM memory or up to 256Gbyte RDIMM ...

Embedded World: Cypress adds Arm secure firmware to PSoC6

Cypress-PSoC-6-security-block-diag

Cypress Semiconductor has implemented Arm’s Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Trusted Firmware-M reference example on Cypress’ PSoC 6 MCUs. “PSA is a set of threat models, security analyses, hardware and firmware architecture specifications, and an open source firmware reference implementation,” said Arm. “It provides a recipe, based on industry best practice, that allows security to be consistently designed in, at both ...

NI brings TSN to CompactRIO

CompactRIO

NI’s latest CompactRIO Controllers include NI-DAQmx and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) to support deterministic communication and synchronised measurements across standard Ethernet networks. TSN has evolved from the IEEE 802.11 Ethernet standard, and it can be used to synchronise distributed systems across networks, which eliminates the need for additional synchronisation cables. A design challenge for industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications ...
