IoT - It's Everywhere!
Preparing Students for Tomorrow's
Design and Test Challenges

December 8, 2016 at 2:00pm EST

Sponsored by:


The Internet of Things (IoT) – a massive network of devices and sensors wirelessly networked – is our future. It is estimated that the typical family home may have more than 500 smart devices by 2022.  The next generation of engineers will face extraordinary challenges as they solve problems relating to wireless module selection, protocol decisions, functionality in mixed signal environment, battery life requirements, regulatory certification and the interference of things.

This webcast will begin with a high level overview of the topics important in IoT device design including system design fundamentals, RF, power management and sensors connectivity.  It will then switch to a more detailed consideration around balancing features, functions, and protocols in power management design. It will also discuss what designers need to measure and what instruments to use, in order to gain insights and to optimize the IoT device battery life.

Join us as we cover:
  • Current and power measurement tools and techniques
  • Various instruments and applications available and how to make the appropriate tradeoffs
  • Tips and tricks to make the best current measurement connection
  • Additional considerations and ideas to help equip the next generation of engineers
