    The IoT Library: Diffie and Hellman’s public-key cryptography wins ACM Turing Award

    The battle between Washington and Silicon Valley over encryption and intelligence gathering wasn’t always the conspicuous battle it has become. Snowden and NSA’s constitutional abuses set the stage for the current standoff between industry and government. But back in the early days of Silicon Valley big government contractors like Lockheed were the tech behemoths of the day – giants that defined the industry and helped create, via U.S.

      The IoT library: Intelligent Hall-Effect sensors open new application doors

      By Richard Wallace | March 9, 2016

      Experimental Verification of Hall Effect Sensor Properties

      Experimental Verification of Hall Effect Sensor Properties

      Magnetic field sensors lie passively inside electronic systems, on constant alert, making them ideal motion detectors, especially in automotive and consumer applications.

      But passive should not imply that magnetic sensors are dumb or idle devices. Not by any means. In the age of ultra-low power, the sub-microamp, intelligent, Hall-Effect sensor may be the smartest sensor around.

        Raspberry Pi 3 upgraded for IoT, industrial applications

        March 8, 2016

        Raspberry Pi 3 upgraded for IoT, industrial applications
        At just $35, the single-board Raspberry Pi computer has been the darling of the hobbyist and maker community since the first model launched three years ago. In that time, more than 8 million units have been sold.

        Developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the credit card-sized computer was initially intended to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries.

          Red Devil Electric team wins Google Little Box challenge

          Google and the IEEE have awarded the grand prize in the $1 Million Little Box Challenge to Belgium’s CE+T Power’s Red Electrical Devils. The Red Electrical Devils (named after that country’s national soccer team) were declared the winner by a consensus of judges from Google, IEEE Power Electronics Society, and NREL. Honorable mentions go to teams from Schneider Electric and Virginia Tech’s Future Energy Electronics Center.

            The IoT library: Wireless sensor networks tuned for big data collection

            By Richard Wallace | March 2, 2016

            The IoT library: Wireless sensor networks tuned for collect big data collectionWireless sensors are hot; especially low power, three-axis accelerometers and high-performance gyroscopes – the kind found in drones and mobile camera modules, smartphones, mobile communication and gaming device, augmented reality systems, virtual reality, image stabilization, and industrial measurement applications.

            Sensors can perform tiny, discrete sensing and measurement functions or they can be networked together to create an intelligent, big data approach to things like dynamic motion analysis.
