Run AI Algorithms on Your Embedded Edge Computer

May 31, 2022
Abstract image of AI and an Embedded Edge Computer

Artificial intelligence (AI) is fairly ubiquitous in the embedded and industrial IoT spaces. In many instances, it’s actually machine learning (ML) that’s being utilized. Although, these two terms are often used interchangeably, they are not the same thing. Very simply, ML is a form (or subset) of AI, which can be quite large is scope…. Read More »

We’ve spent lots of time discussing the Edge of the IoT, particularly what processes should be handled at the Edge versus those that are better performed in the Cloud. And you’ve probably noticed the focus moving increasingly more toward the Edge, as compute capability grows. But that discussion soon leads to the next point: just… Read More »

Cybersecurity at the Edge: OT vs. IT

March 31, 2022
Graphic representation of how IT interfaces with OT

No one questions the need for cybersecurity these days. With attacks coming on a daily basis, the question today is “how do I secure” rather than “why should I secure” or “do I need to secure at all.” What’s less understood is the difference between securing at the OT (operational technology) level versus securing at… Read More »

Understand When COTS Will Suffice Rather Than Custom

March 25, 2022
COTS or Custom

COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) is a term that gets thrown around a lot in the embedded computer industry, particularly on the hardware side. COTS products are optimized for efficient, sometimes volume, production and come with a predetermined amount of functionality and I/O capabilities designed to meet the majority of computing needs of a broader market. When… Read More »

Made in the USA is Not a Throwaway Line

March 17, 2022
Circular graphic with US flag and Made in USA text

Does Made in the USA really make a difference? You bet it does, and the reasons for that statement are now stronger than ever, thanks to things like the pandemic, the chip shortage, the difficulties in securing end systems, counterfeit components, and on and on. This argument is amplified if you are sourcing boards and… Read More »

Board Provider or Embedded SOLUTIONS Provider?

March 17, 2022

No two embedded applications are the same. Hence, no two solutions should be the same. There is far more behind that statement than meets the eye. For example, the engineering expertise of one vendor might surpass that of another vendor. Something that would seem simple, like specifying the optimal memory configuration or ensuring that parts… Read More »
