Optimising for low-power IoT part 1

1 min read

Semiconductor manufacturers traditionally do not present the information you need in the way you want. For example, they may quote power characteristics that although may be accurate under certain circumstances can be inaccurate for your application.

There are several important processes you can go through to make sure you have all the right information to confirm that the proposed design and eventually the device will operate in the way you intended.

In this video, IoT specialist, Mark Dunnett of Embedded Pro takes you through various aspects of IoT prototyping. These include modems and antenna considerations, LPWA connectivity, roaming devices, and the evolution of mobile data standards.

Bring your LPWA devices to life

Thingstream recently held its first developer event called in>flow.

Hosted at the Tobacco Theatre, Amsterdam in October, in>flow was designed to present and promote current & future trends in IoT.

The aim was to create a community of experienced, forward thinking IoT practitioners. It became a powerful forum where advances in current and future IoT technology were put forward and considered, alliances made, working case studies discussed and the formation of a working community in IoT.

This event was presented to device manufacturers, IoT Platform developers, system integrators and IoT consultants or anyone involved in digital transformation using the concept of industry 4.0 as a model to drive:

  • IoT connectivity
  • IoT strategy
  • IoT applications
  • Harnessing new radio technology
  • Automation
  • Real-time data
  • Device to application management
  • Device design and manufacture.
