What to Consider When Securing Your Data

​With the advent of the Internet and cloud services, data security becomes a requirement of doing business. But with so many service providers and a lack of standardization, what do companies need to know to maintain that requirement?
SFP+ Enhancements Enable Network Need for Speed

Today’s consumer and enterprise data-intensive applications are driving the need for constantly increasing data throughput in every aspect of the computing, storage and data center networks
It Isn’t Easy Being Green: How Energy Efficiency Measures Are Changing Data Centers

​A green data center is defined as a repository for the storage, management and dissemination of data in which such systems as mechanical, lighting, electrical and computer combine maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact.
Shark Tank Big Winner Saves Lives

​Smart mobility changed everything, but it was advancements in wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Smart that truly freed the genie from the bottle. As a result of these and other emerging connectivity technologies, the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) market is driving significant growth and opportunities in a variety of end market segments and creating an entirely new breed of connected devices.
From Vision to Reality: A Look at Pebble’s Launch Into the Wearables Market

​When Eric Migicovsky started designing smartwatches six years ago, there were few players in the wearables space and a lot of skeptics. He was an undergraduate student at the time, developing the earliest iterations of Pebble for a school project. But much has changed since Migicovsky’s graduation from University of Waterloo in 2009. In 2013 alone, Migicovsky, now the CEO of Pebble Technology Corp., shipped 400,000 smartwatches and is competing head-to-head with giants like Apple and Google.
Learn Without Limits

​If you’re a teacher, how do you compete? How do you engage students in their own learning in the face of answers at their fingertips? The classroom of today still looks surprisingly similar to the classroom of yesterday. In recent years, the changing educational landscape has forced educators to rethink the way they teach in the face of ever-present technology. This paradigm shift has presented each school district with its own unique set of challenges, the solutions to which elude many.
Avnet Zynq SoMs Decrease Customer Development Times and Costs

​Xilinx’s Zynq®-7000 All Programmable (AP) System-on-Chip (SoC) provides a new paradigm for embedded system design, blurring the line between traditional processors and FPGAs. These devices combine the software programmability of a processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA. The Zynq AP SoC provides unrivaled levels of system performance, flexibility and scalability while providing system benefits in terms of power reduction, lower cost with fast time to market.
A Look at the MicroSD Card of the Future: Speed and Capacity meet Reliability

​Manufacturers recently released the largest capacity and fastest microSD cards ever made. The 128 Gb cards demonstrate more than a 1,000-fold increase in storage density over the last decade, and the fastest speeds of these microSD cards now rival other high-speed options for wireless computing.
Optimal Li-ion Battery Charging Maximizes Safety and Performance

​Lithium-ion (Li-ion) is by far the most popular battery choice for the mid- and high-end portable products market because it offers a relatively high voltage, excellent energy density, a large number of recharge cycles, a slow self-discharge rate and a low maintenance requirement.
Your Next DSP May Just Possibly Be an FPGA

​Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have had digital signal processing (DSP) capabilities for several years, but the newest crop of these devices can implement DSP-oriented functions with blazing speed, increased board density and lower power than many traditional digital signal processors.
