One of the primary goals of the Internet of Things (IoT) is to help consumers become better users of energy—on the factory floor, at home, at work, on the road, while exercising, or at the doctor’s office. In this Basics Of Design, we will discuss energy efficiency and the IoT, and spotlight technologies and devices that are helping engineers design products that use less power while still boosting performance.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/iot/basics-energy-efficiency-and-low-power-design" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/iot/basics-energy-efficiency-and-low-power-design#comments IoT Basics of Design Embedded Mon, 11 Jul 2016 18:22:00 +0000 877971 at http://electronicdesign.com Optimizing Power Transformer and Inductor Performance with Custom Designs http://electronicdesign.com/power/optimizing-power-transformer-and-inductor-performance-custom-designs <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by: Datatronics </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Specifying nonstandard magnetic components (transformers and coils) from specialty vendors requires some knowledge of the ways their physical and electrical characteristics are described and of how those characteristics affect each other and the size and cost of the component.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/power/optimizing-power-transformer-and-inductor-performance-custom-designs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/power/optimizing-power-transformer-and-inductor-performance-custom-designs#comments Basics of Design Power Tue, 16 Dec 2014 14:47:00 +0000 831911 at http://electronicdesign.com Basics of Harsh-Environment Membrane Switches Aid Medical Devices http://electronicdesign.com/digital-ics/basics-harsh-environment-membrane-switches-aid-medical-devices <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by The Berqguist Company </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Electronic devices and circuits are important tools for healthcare and for a wide range of medical applications.
