In this latest Electronic Design image gallery, we examine some of the most intriguing Internet of Things (IoT) projects being developed by makers and engineers with support from crowdfunding websites.
To aid industrial factories as they push toward higher-speed manufacturing and custom production, Maxim Integrated has introduced the MAXREFDES32# subsystem reference design for use in control systems....More
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
