If you are searching for a high-performance, power efficient, yet cost sensitive MCU for your designs, then here is the exciting news: NXP recently introduced the LPC51U68 MCU.   Power efficient solution for future IoT designs   Based on the Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core, the LPC51U68 MCU pushes the performance of the core to 100MHz, which is more than two times faster than current Cortex-M0+-based products. The LPC51U68 MCU also provides expanded memory resources of up to 96KB o ...
There is already a fair amount of easy reachable information regarding Thread, ranging from the basics to in-depth technical dive. This blog is not intended to be a typical one with this kind of information.   Instead, consider the situation when there is already decided to use Thread, either by requirements gathered by itself or passed down by others; so, what happens next? How is a specific vendor selected?   There are various questions that can help make a better decision, but sc ...
While I have read a couple of articles recently that talk about how “machines are taking over”, I have a slightly different perspective on this.  Perhaps machines are just mis-understood?  They are not trying to take over -they are just trying to help -help the human race get more done and be more efficient.  And a part of that is learning how to communicate with us.   Communicating with machines used to be difficult – the responsibility fell solely on our ...
The Japanese festival Hanami is symbolic of a change in season. But, whether in ancient time or now, whether in Japan or not, the festival is also an opportunity to renew or create bonds. Hanami Festival in Washington D.C: diverse groups gathered to marvel at the beautiful cherry flowers. (Image from cherryblossomwatch.com)   Japan, a cluster of islands covered mostly with mountains and volcanoes, is the world biggest automobile producer, the birth place of karaoke and sumo wrestling. Japa ...
QN908x is an ultra-low power, high performance and highly integrated Bluetooth 5 certified Low Energy solution for Bluetooth Smart applications such as sports and fitness, human interface devices, and app-enabled smart accessories. It is specially designed for wearable electronics with a small capacity battery.   The QN908x MCU family was launched in July 2017 with rev. C silicon. With the broad interest in QN908x, we decided to solve some issues listed in errata that can benefit customers ...
Near Field Communications (NFC), even though used in dozens of applications from contactless payment to healthcare, and billions of NFC ICs, readers, and tags are in use globally, studies continue to show that many, even very inexpensive, products that could benefit from it have yet to do so.   The use of NFC in inexpensive products, of which there are thousands, recently got more appealing thanks to a microcontroller within NXP’s LPC800 series introduced last October targeted spec ...
The breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will bring massive social consequences, transforming the modern life by reshaping several industries —transportation, health, science, or finance. The transition is rising new challenges (from rebuilding infrastructure or developing new cyber-security systems and networks, to crafting new laws and regulations) for scientists and engineers, policymakers and government, and also to the public.   The When Will AI Exceed Human Performance ...
Over the past years, few leading tech companies have acquired most of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) startups in Silicon Valley, consolidating some of the best AI teams in the world but slowing down the AI advantage in other industries of harvesting information from large datasets —one of the most significant AI-based opportunities. IMAGE: Race to acquire Top AI startups - CB Insights     The strategy for some leading tech companies is to bring the talent in-house and figur ...
As an end user of many connect electronic devices, I often find myself questioning just how secure are these devices and the communication between them.  Luckily, I know that there are many smart engineers out there ready to tackle that problem, including my colleague, Donnie Garcia, Solutions Architect for Security and IoT at NXP.  He is first to admit that there is no simple answer, turnkey solution or magic spell to fix all of the end-to-end security flaws already built into our emb ...
One of the ways how Smart Cities will help urban areas to sustain growth and improve efficiency is by reducing the number of vehicles moving around the city, seeking the Smart Transit concept: highly-efficient autonomous transit systems, merging the flexibility of the personal car with the sustainability of public transit. However, it might take some time for this to happen, as several breakthroughs need to converge together with government legislation and public acceptance.   Another way ...
Arduino Create interface (via Arduino)   Arduino Create now integrates Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone and other Linux based SBCs ─ all with IoT in mind. Arduino’s goal is to make developing IoT (Internet of Things) devices quicker and easier than ever before for the Maker or Professional Developer. Stated in a press release, Arduino Creates brings the Arduino framework and libraries to all these SBCs, officially, changing the development game in a big way.   “With this release, ...
Smart Cities are urban areas using information management technologies (like Big Data) and electronic gadgets (like sensors) together with the Internet of Things (IoT) to collect and supply data from city infrastructure. This raw data is aggregate it, normalized it, analyzed it, and interpreted it in real time to efficiently optimize the available resources, and effectively manage all city operations and services to drive economic growth. Smart Cities aims to make metropolitan environments more ...
The emergence of Machine Learning (ML) or Artificial Intelligence (AI) has got everyone talking.  A lot is being discussed and written in the newspapers about the potential of the technology in every aspect of human life and how it will change the future. Many new products are being announced and innovations are taking place in hardware, software and infrastructure levels, to best solve ML problems. At the ground level though, ML is all about mathematical solution to a given problem via st ...
  In a previous blog post we took a brief look at the MangOH Red and what makes this new board standout. We then started to explore the Legato framework that runs on the Magoh boards (and the Raspberry Pi, instructions here).   We started off looking at a very simple application, heartbeatRed, one that has only one component, includes one source file and uses one API, to interface with two GPIOs (a button and a LED). In this blog we will move further to an application that has multipl ...
Countries are adapting their workforces, economies and business models, population and society, and even culture to be ready for the new jobs Artificial Intelligence (AI) will help to create —and not stealing them!. Companies across all industries are viewing AI as a facilitator for their future operations; nowadays top leaders and executives are rethinking their business models too. The Leadership in the Age of AI survey by Infosys concluded Artificial Intelligence has currently gone b ...
