EETimes University – Fundamentals of IoT System Design

Designing an IoT device requires more than expertise in embedded system design. Developers also need to understand the IoT architecture and how their device fits into the grander scheme. IoT devices are not stand-alone but links in a chain that can affect the entire internet. Developers need to understand how to secure their device, provision … Continue reading EETimes University – Fundamentals of IoT System Design

Tips and Tricks – Offload the I in IoT

Embedded software developers have a lot on their plate. A developer has to be an expert in hardware, sensors, communication protocols, low level drivers, HAL’s API’s, object oriented design and a master of programming languages. Unfortunately embedded engineers must also now know internet protocols, web design, tcp/ip stacks, encryption and security. The list is quickly … Continue reading Tips and Tricks – Offload the I in IoT

Tools – The April Board

The April board is a break-out for the Imp Developer module. The April module provides the ability to power the Imp module using a standard USB-Mini cable, an optional battery connector, or through a standard .100 header. The April board also has an on-board 3.3V regulator that can with stand an input up to 17 … Continue reading Tools – The April Board

CEC – Driver Design Patterns and the Internet

Course Overview: Leveraging design patterns is a critical technique to quickly and efficiently develop an embedded system.  This course will explore driver design patterns through developing low-level drivers for the STM32L0 Nucleo board. We will explore the interfacing of common sensors to the development board, in addition to connecting it to the Internet as a … Continue reading CEC – Driver Design Patterns and the Internet
