Next Generation Bill of Materials Management: Beyond BOM 101
By Arena Solutions
The bill of materials (BOM) is a critical product information record for both the engineering and manufacturing teams.
Hardware emulation to debug embedded system software
By Lauro Rizzatti, Verification Consultant
In today's competitive landscape, getting complex electronic devices rich in embedded software to market faster while making them cheaper and more reliable is a very risky proposition.
Charging and gas gauging for mobile devices
By Ken Touch, Director of Software Engineering, Intrinsyc Technologies
Operating effectively from a battery is a core requirement for mobile devices. Good battery-powered behavior is crucial for a product's success. Battery-powered operation revolves around three major aspects:
Tear Down: Misfit Shine 2 Fitness tracker
By Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director
I've gone through more than my share of fitness trackers over the last year or so. Part of the reason is that I'm somewhat fussy about technology, and part is because I was doing research for a pair of Tear Down articles. One of those articles is based on the Misfit Shine 2 device, and the next one is the Garmin Forerunner 230, which is based on GPS technology (that'll b the next Tear Down).
IT-centric IoT device management using Java and Eclipse Kura
By Walt Bowers, Eurotech
Java-based device application frameworks in the Open Services Gateway initiative (OSGi) model can speed development of Internet of Things (IoT) gateways and applications, as well as offer advanced remote management capabilities not available through traditional embedded agents.
What I want to see at Embedded World 2016
By Rory Dear, European Editor/ Technical Contributor
"IoT", "M2M", and "Industrie 4.0" are a few obvious examples of the plethora of buzzwords I've little doubt I will be visually assaulted with as I meander around Nuremberg Messe's Embedded World 2016, the same as I was last year, and the year before that. These technologies generally fit into the category of "connected" or "connected devices".

How to preserve signal-chain integrity when interfacing microcontrollers with DACs
By Rahul Prakash and Kunal Gandhi, Texas Instruments
A microcontroller is one of the most power-hungry components in an industrial system. As the Industry 4.0 standard becomes more popular, microcontrollers are taking on more and more of a computing burden. As a consequence, we are seeing an explosive increase in microcontroller power consumption.
