Open Protocols Expand M2M’s Boundaries
Increasingly, developers, OEMs, and customers are demanding more open and interoperable M2M protocols, which provide a number of advantages.
Koneki Open-Source Development Tools Simplify M2M Development 1
As the first pillar in the M2M IWG effort and the initiative that spawned the entire project, Koneki aims to solve one of the biggest problems for M2M developers: a lack of effective tools for developing embedded applications.
M2M IWG Enables M2M Development With Open-Source Technologies
Developers can take advantage of an end-to-end open-source software stack for M2M embedded development, extending from the embedded device to the connection with the server infrastructure, with all of the tools necessary to develop M2M solutions.

Proof-of-Concept Prototypes versus Manufacturing Design Preparations 4

I have designed many early-stage proof-of-concept (POC) circuits, and observed many others do the same thing. It seems that there is often a huge disconnect between clients and engineers, though, when it comes to the goals of a POC design. In simple terms, an engineer worth his salt will overdesign an early POC circuit. This is because Murphy’s law always applies, and POCs are about overcoming unknowns. By overdesigning the circuit, one is able to prove the client’s product POC can be made to work, and quickly....More
