How to prevent dropped communication in critical IoT applications
Networks like those offered in the ATSAMR30 family of MCUs with sub-GHz radio help ensure critical pieces are in place for information to be reliably transferred in changing environments when needede, all while sustaining long battery life ... more
Semiconductor switches for electronic fuses
The thermal characteristic of the protected object is crucial; for example the electric cable, the wiring harness or the semiconductor switch in the connected control unit. Instead of safety fuses or electro-magnetically triggered mechanical contacts, electronic fuses contain semiconductor switches along with their control logic including protective and diagnostic functions ... more
IoT security requires an end-to-end approach
One approach to enforcing secure boot and key storage is to incorporate all of the required blocks into a microcontroller. However, such secure microcontrollers are not available in the many variants that embedded designers can come to expect, which can increase the system cost ... more
