Several chipmakers are developing new memory storage technologies that will change the way that data is stored. These are enhancements of NAND flash memory that can store information faster, in a smaller space, and with less power consumption than previous generations of product. Here’s a look at some recent developments in the memory and storage device markets.
In the field of vehicle diagnosis, the use of Ethernet provides significant improvements in comparison to established methods. But the use of Automotive Ethernet requires rethinking in the development process and validation of such networks.
The IoT is the “flavor of the month,” encompassing a plethora of low-power radio devices connected to the internet. These devices require careful design to prolong battery life, reduce environmental impact, and maximize manufacturer margins.
Over the last few years security in embedded devices has moved from something that was considered important in a few select industries to what has become a primary consideration in just about any type of device.
Piezoelectric motors are increasingly popular for linear motion, but the design of the accompanying drivers is very different from those used by traditional electromagnetic motors. Employing the piezoelectric effect, a voltage across a specific type of crystal causes it to elongate by a small amount (typically 0.1%).
