Don’t Let Software Development Slow Down Your Embedded Solution

March 12, 2020

When it comes to IIoT and embedded systems, rapid software development is crucial, for a variety of reasons. The most obvious is that design windows are fixed. If software development can’t be completed within that window, the product doesn’t ship on time. That’s a bad thing. While it may seem unintuitive, your embedded hardware vendor… Read More »

Embedded Specmanship: Know the Story Behind the Numbers

March 4, 2020

There are so many scenarios in which an embedded industrial computer should be deployed that you couldn’t possibly count them all. However, determining which embedded computer is best for your specific application can be a tricky endeavor. One way that should be obvious to determine the right platform is to look at the specifications for… Read More »

Pick the SBC Form Factor that Fits Your Application Needs

February 6, 2020

Pretty much for its entire existence, the trend in the embedded computing industry has been toward achieving smaller size, lower power, and higher performance. Sometimes these attributes can help each other to drive adoption of new technological advancements, but in others, choices must be made for priorities of size versus power and performance. For example,… Read More »

Form, Fit, and Functional Replacements: More Than Just Component Upgrades

January 31, 2020

Designing long-lifecycle systems goes hand-in-hand with long-term decision making when it comes to your embedded platforms. If chosen carefully, these decisions can help you avoid a myriad of minor inconveniences and potential system-scrapping problems years or even decades down the road, depending on the application. For example, issues like equipment wear and tear and outright… Read More »

Know When to Compute at the Edge, the Fog, or the Cloud

January 29, 2020

In the Industrial IoT (IIoT), the Cloud acts as the upper-level data storage and analytics engine that can be accessed directly or indirectly by the IIoT’s Edge nodes. While this may seem like a straightforward process, it can be rather complex. The Edge is where the sensors lie and where real-time processing and decisions occur. … Read More »

The Edge is Getting Cloudy with AI

December 17, 2019
WINSYSTEMS Embedded Solutions Keep Your Industrial AI Data Flowing

When computing is performed at the edge, data is collected at the source from sensors and then some amount of lower-level processing takes place. Processing data at the edge enables real-time decision making by eliminating the need to send sensor data to the cloud for processing, then waiting for the results. Artificial intelligence (AI) will,… Read More »

Security at the Edge: Designing for FIPS Compliance

December 10, 2019

The Federal Information Processing Standard, also known as FIPS (Standard 140-2), is a U.S. government computer security standard that’s used to approve cryptographic modules. That comprehensive standard has also been adopted by the Canadian government. It dates back to the early 2000s but is still a specification that OEMs look for when putting their systems together…. Read More »
