ST SensorTile.box PRO Allows Anyone to Create IoT Products STMicroelectronics
The IoT is reshaping our world by connecting everything from smart thermostats to entire factories, facilitated by advances in microcontrollers and wireless technologies. Development kits like the ST SensorTile.box PRO make it easy for anyone to start learning about IoT principles and design.

New Tech Tuesdays: Wi-Fi 7: A Leap in Fast and Reliable Wireless Connectivity Rudy Ramos
The Wi-Fi Alliance® introduced Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ on January 8, 2024, bringing powerful new features to boost Wi-Fi performance. These gains are yet to be fully realized, though, as the actual Wi-Fi 7 specification is still in development and is expected to be finalized sometime in 2024.

Why Matter Matters for the Smart Home Steven Keeping
It’s been a long time coming, but Matter promises to simplify the smart home—making it easier for manufacturers to build innovative products and for consumers to use them. That will finally see the true potential of the smart home a become reality.

The Critical Component in Low Power Products is the Designer Steven Keeping
Low power components have come a long way. But unless the designer knows how to get the best from them, the battery life gains won’t be realized. What is it that the skilled low-power product designer knows that’s news to the rest of us? It comes down to hardware selection, good coding, testing, and sleep.

5G Is Not Just Good for Consumers, the IoT Will Benefit Too Steven Keeping
5G is the first generation of cellular mobile technology that was designed from the outset to support not only traditional mobile telecoms, but up-and-coming “new radio” wireless technologies for the IoT.

Cellular IoT eSIM Adoption Steven Keeping
Like smartphones, cellular IoT devices need verification and authorization before network access is granted. Smartphones use SIM cards for this purpose, but their form factor doesn’t suit the unique demands of cellular IoT operation. Does the solution lie with eSIMs?

Bluetooth® Heads in New Direction Steven Keeping
An upgrade to the Bluetooth® Core Specification, Bluetooth 5.1, adds direction finding capabilities. The enhancement promises much for applications such as indoor navigation, but implementation is challenging even for the experienced RF engineer.

Router Security Vulnerabilities Could Compromise the IoT Steven Keeping
Wi-Fi routers offer a cheap, convenient gateway to connect IoT sensors to the Cloud, but tests reveal the devices have weak security. As the IoT grows, they could prove even more enticing targets for hackers. New developments bring more protection, but other technologies could prove a better option.

Connected-Home Tech Falls Short but the Future is Bright Steven Keeping
While smart-home devices are gaining traction, the truly connected home remains a dream. Engineers are working on interim solutions to meld disparate wireless technologies, with some success, but a single smart-home solution is far in the future.

Building a Business Case for the IoT Steven Keeping
Those of us of a certain age survived in the period before the Internet, yet, such has been the transformative power of the technology, even we have difficulty working out how. But today’s Internet is just the beginning; extending it to billions of tiny, inexpensive sensors that continuously generate useful data will exponentially multiply the network’s power and its influence over daily life.
