Ensuring security when connecting industrial embedded systems to the cloud
The dawn of Industry 4.0 has seen factories become far more automated with remote manufacturing and control concepts. While this brings many benefits in terms of business efficiency it also exposes some very expensive assets to the risk of unwanted access ... more
Brake Resistors in Frequency Converter Applications
Self-protecting PTC brake resistors are often used for frequency inverters in the low power range as well as for servo controllers. Currently, there are very few manufacturers of these special brake resistors for these applications ... more
Zero-Drift Amplifiers Offer Superior Precision at the Cost of Time Domain Performance
Zero-drift amplifiers, meaning amplifiers that implement a continuously self-correcting architecture, have received a lot of fanfare due to the high level of DC precision that they enable ... more
Passive Matrix OLEDs
For some time now, passive matrix OLED (PMOLED) displays have also been hugely popular, for example in the industrial sector. Vibrant colors, unique contrasts, and high resolutions as well as a slender design make them interesting for product developers of industrial applications, especially when used as a replacement for a passive LCD display to enhance the application’s aesthetic appeal. ... more
Security is changing in the IoT era
With the rapidly accelerating growth of IoT endpoints and increased concerns around security breaches, design engineers are looking for solutions that help reduce power consumption while adding robust security. Enter Microchip, manufacturer of microcontroller, memory and semiconductor devices, with its new SAM L10 and L11 MCU families. ... more

With CIPsthe microcontroller doesn’t need to interact with the Central Processing Unit (CPU) to executing tasks. ... more
Driving Brand Recognition with MCUs
Kurt Parker, Microchip Technology Brand is everything when it comes to marketing and selling products that customers will buy and more importantly continue to buy. Anything with a display screen is expected to have a polished look and feel and be easy-to-use. Now, especially with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more simple devices are featuring interactive display screens causing design challenges for engineers. Many microcontrollers (MCUs) do not have the advanced features needed to run these ... more
Solving the Problem of Memory in GUI-Based MCU Designs
Kurt Parker, Microchip Technology For me, one of the most difficult components in embedded graphics designs is memory for frame buffers. This memory should be large, high speed and cheap. Unfortunately, compromises often need to be made in order to incorporate memory into embedded graphics designs. At best, these compromises turn into expensive nuisances that drive up cost and eat away at profitability. And worse case, it can cause the need to outsource the design or hire and train new talent ... more
