Embedded Systems Ė Prospects & Future in India
The digital revolution now has reached to a stage where we cannot conduct our normal modern daily lives without this technology. Indeed, it is reasonable to say that everyone already owns at least one piece of equipment, which contains a processor or microcontroller in it. If embedded systems are to become a serious discipline to contribute in progression of the Indian economy and global demand in general, it is imperative that our proven expertise in IT software should play a crucial role in developing talent with the required skills.
Designing for IoT Applications
For a device to be IoT-compatible or an IoT-based application, it should have very little or no human interaction for its control. Per se only a sensor network may not qualify as an IoT application. Although, by definition, the IoT refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure (not necessarily use Internet). We may choose to call it an Internet of Humans and Things (IHAT?) or something like that, but surely not an IoT. So, in short, all sensor networks may not qualify as an IoT applications.
Moving Beyond The Routine of IoT Applications
If you search over internet, you would realize that there are only a few typical applications based on IoT such as smart-watches, home automation, home plantation and access controls. I think IoT is much bigger than that. Have a look around and one could figure out so many potential applications of IoT there itself. See in kitchen, one fine day house-wives suddenly realize that LPG is exhausted and they need new cylinder which causes enough inconvenience; why canít we work on that application where you get advance alerts and not only that but order for new cylinder can also get placed in advance.
How to Select Right MCU for Each Application ?
This very question stems from the need to cater application requirement as perfect as possible. When it comes to selecting a MCU based on parameters, the results may be either pin-pointing leave you to scratch your heads. In either case, just these donít help in just picking an MCU due to many other factors involved in selection. Let us see some of the critical consideration factors for selecting of MCU for an application...
Saving Microcontroller IO Pins
It is responsibility of design engineer to get the most performance and capability out of the resources available in limited budget and that too for specific application requirements. This note discusses two such techniques to save microcontroller IO lines.
Know More About Electric Vehicles
While one is aware about advantages and limitations of electric vehicles; the article mentions a few basic types of electric vehicles and details thereof. Each of this type has its pros and cons and therefore making it suitable for only certain specific applications.
