Overview - Enabling Insight into the Design, Development and Validation of IoT devices

The IoT is revolutionizing how we live and is built on increasingly complex technologies. IoT devices can carry the processing power of an early supercomputer; they are sometimes powered by coin cells that are expected to last more than 10 years. Poor reliability can lead to expensive service bills, product recalls, and unhappy customers. Can your designs withstand the rigors of the real world?

The seminar addresses the rising challenges facing engineers designing and developing devices for IoT applications, with reliable and accurate test and measurement solutions, enabling faster time-to-market and successful implementations in the real world.

The Papers:

1. Maximizing IoT Device Battery Life - Insight into longer battery run-time and energy efficient designs

IoT devices are often battery or self-powered and have limited energy storage. To optimize battery run-time, it is important to measure, analyze, and optimize battery drain at all phases of your device’s development, which includes both hardware and software. Techniques such as current drain profiling and analysis can help you achieve optimal balance between performance and power consumption. You will learn how you can measure wide dynamic current range seamlessly from sleep to active, identify critical RF/DC events that contribute most to power consumption, detect design weakness, estimate battery life, and a better way to power your devices during test and development.

2. Analyzing IoT Device Power Integrity - Insight into solving power integrity issues

With increased functionality, higher density, higher speed and lower power electronics, power integrity issues are becoming common as the tolerance reduces. To ensure clean power rails, supply lines need to be examined for quality and integrity. The challenge is to measure small and fast AC signals riding on top of their DC supplies. We start with the basics before moving on to advanced measurement, analysis, and prediction techniques. One of the goals is you will learn how to debug and test power distribution networks (PDN) with more precision.

3. Overcoming IoT Wireless Design and Test Challenges - Insight into solving wireless design and test challenges in the real world

To serve the diverse nature and needs of IoT applications, numerous wireless technologies and standards have emerged. Varied networks can support applications ranging from simple battery-powered sensors to the low-latency, high-bandwidth, mission-critical services. As devices need to support multiple standards, testing these devices becomes increasingly complex. The high density of connected devices sharing similar frequency bands can cause co-channel and adjacent channel interference. How to ensure devices function reliably besides passing the regulatory tests? We will address these wireless test challenges and help you overcome them. You will also learn about the new over-the-air wireless functional test and radio access network solutions.

4. IoT = device + cloud. Architecting a Complete IoT Solution
When designing an IoT product it's so easy to focus on the one component in the IoT architecture that's within our comfort zone and forget the rest. One example is of a HW-oriented CTO that designs the PCB and afterwards realizes their HW is too weak because of cloud IoT protocols and the required encryption. In this talk I'll discuss the major questions the architect has to ask in order to design an end-to-end IoT architecture, which should be a step before the design of any specific component.
