What is the reason behind the success of the ESP8266 and… the huge interest in the new offspring from Shanghai? Why not ask the CEO of Espressif directly?
Deep Learning Architecture
Machine Learning needs massive computing power, which is usually provided by a combination of a powerful GPU and an up market CPU. Automatic learning is not a new concept, but continuous advances in computing power are making it a reality. AI (Artificial Intelligent) allows gadgets to interact with their environments much more intelligently.
25 Functions for 25 Cents
Texas Instruments’ new MSP430™ value line sensing MCU family enables you to implement simple sensing solutions through a variety of integrated mixed-signal features. To add to these low-cost MCUs, TI created a library of code examples for 25 common system-level functions, including timers, input/output (I/O) expanders, system reset controllers, electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) and more.
Benefits of Database Software for Embedded Systems and IoT Devices
What are the challenges in developing and maintaining an embedded database library? What advantages does SQL aff ord developers of C/C++ applications? Do you know what performance bottlenecks a device will face when deployed to capture a large amount of data?
