Wearable Technology: Function Meets Fashion

​Wearables are small electronic devices that enable mobile computing and sensor data processing via wireless networks.
Technologies and Components for Designing Electric Vehicles

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) such as the Toyota Prius and the Chevy Volt and electric vehicles (EVs) such as the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3 and Tesla Model S are growing in popularity amid concern for global warming. It’s easy to see why.
Wearable Electronics: Four Approaches to Implement a Sensor Hub and Save Power

As more sensors are added to nearly every electronic device including smartphones, tablets and wearables, more power is needed to run sensor data and turn it into useful information.
Internet of Things: Designing Sensor-Based Devices with Coin Cell Batteries

A popular vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that it will comprise billions of sensors gathering information about their local environment and transmitting that data back to servers in the cloud.
LEDs: The Eyes and Ears of the Internet of Things

​It may seem to be a stretch to assert that LEDs play a truly important role in the future of the Internet of Things. After all, by themselves, they’re just lights. However, with sensors tucked neatly inside and a bit of intelligence added throughout, LEDs are already evolving to be our eyes and ears as the rapidly expanding IoT unfolds before us.
Hybrid Architectures Enable High Performance for Defense Systems

Autonomous and assistive defense applications look to squeeze increasingly complex computational tasks into smaller, more mobile systems.
Wireless Design 101: How to Reduce Costs and Achieve Better Performance

Wireless technologies for data communications and networking take on many forms to transmit data at rates ranging from a few kbits/s to more than 1.3 Gbits/s.
Cloud Computing: Not Just an Open or Shut Case

​Choosing a cloud platform has become a frequent and critical decision as more companies elect to offload their ineffective and expensive in-house data storage efforts. But selecting the right cloud computing platform involves many considerations, such as features, benefits and pitfalls that can have a big impact on how a company does business.
Wearables: Tracking, Computing and Making Sense of Context Awareness

Wearable devices are moving quickly from concept to reality based on evolving technologies such as sensor fusion, communications and vision. Wearables have evolved to become perceptually aware agents that learn through users’ experiences, activities and environment through observation via diverse physical sensors.
What’s Next for Lithium Power?

Li-ion batteries feature a high voltage, excellent energy density, a large number of recharge cycles and a slow self-discharge rate. The technology’s energy density allows manufacturers to produce batteries that take up much less space and are lighter than alternative chemistries of the same capacity.
