Which Raspberry Pi is right for your project?

Which Raspberry Pi is right for your project?
Ever since it first came into the world, the Raspberry Pi has been seen as a device with huge potential. Although it was initially designed as a tool for teaching people the basics of computing, the micro-computer has since evolved into a dream device for any DIY enthusiast who wants to build their own computing project. A smart home device, an internet radio, a virtual cloud device, and many more projects are possible for all to build themselves. Now, the fourth generation joins the family with the Raspberry Pi 4, and here Sven Pannewitz, Product Manager at reichelt elektronik tells us more.

More name change misery and mixed up dates

More name change misery and mixed up dates
Steve Rogerson looks at some of the news that may have missed the front page. There are lots of reasons for companies to change their names, most of them irrelevant and erroneous, as I have pointed out many times before. It is much better in almost every case to keep the original name - a name that your customers know and has respect in the industry. OK, if the name has become tarnished for some reason, then maybe fair enough.

Increasingly OEMs are outsourcing, but choosing the right supply partner can make all the difference to companies looking to boost their competitiveness in a rapidly changing market. Paul van der Tang, Purchasing Director of Offshore Electronics explains.

Energy harvesting for 'net-zero-power' IoT devices

Energy harvesting for 'net-zero-power' IoT devices
NB‑IoT and other low power wide area technologies have made ten year battery lives a reality in applications with minimal data transmission. Others need some extra power, which is precisely where energy harvesting fits in. Imagine an IoT device that performs year in, year out, powered by a steady drip of power scavenged from its immediate surroundings.

Commercial embedded Linux benefits: long term savings

Commercial embedded Linux benefits: long term savings
Commercially-supported embedded Linux is the best choice for embedded systems. It provides organisations with the support they need to create customised solutions at a fraction of the cost of developing them on your own. This is the second part, in a series about the main benefits of utilising a commercially-supported embedded Linux solution. Part 1 explains how commercial embedded Linux helps you get to market faster and part 3 will review how you can simplify compliance.

Urgent/11 further boosts VxWorks security

Urgent/11 further boosts VxWorks security
At Wind River, security is embedded in its DNA. It is part of the rich heritage of nearly 40 years in mission-critical systems. It is built into all the technologies it provides to help customers develop trusted and reliable solutions. Wind River take security extremely seriously, which is why the recent vulnerabilities discovered within the TCP/IP (IPnet) networking stack, dubbed “Urgent/11,” has resulted in the most secure VxWorks to date.

What does 3GPP Release 14 means for NB-IoT and LTE-M?

What does 3GPP Release 14 means for NB-IoT and LTE-M?
It’s been about two years since 3GPP, the Standards Developing Organization that defines mobile communication standards, froze its 14th release. The release includes a number of improvements to NB‑IoT and LTE‑M, two cellular technologies that enable the cellular Internet of Things. Now that many of the features are supported by mobile network operators, cellular module manufacturers are announcing the first generation of Release 14 compliant low power wide area cellular modems.
