In this blog, we describe how to set up and work with a LoRa GPS-tracker node device. These devices, among other functions, typically keep track of their location via GPS and send their data through gateways onto the LoRaWAN network.
In this blog, we document the steps required to set up a gateway from scratch, register it with The Things Network and observe uplink data from a simple LoRa node.
It used to be that storing and retrieving vast amounts of video data was quite challenging. Now, Amazon Kinesis Video offers capabilities to cost-effectively process streaming data at any scale, completely simplifying video and audio data storage.
An FPGA is like an older gate array, but the metal interconnections between the gate array logic elements are replaced by SRAM fabric that is infinitely flexible and doesn’t wear out. This fabric allows you to use the same FPGA to implement a myriad of digital circuits. Explore FPGAs and how to address their challenges like reprogramming the SRAM every time you power up.
This blog presents — and solves using Z-transforms — a trivial difference equation incorporating the much touted variable R0.
As we continue to adjust to the new normal of life during the coronavirus pandemic, we can now begin to draw conclusions about how our lives will be different after we return to work, specifically how the pandemic will change how we use technology.
While generic IoT platforms sound like a great idea, the problem is these “one-size-fits-all” platforms tend to only deliver about 60% of a typical IoT solution. By the time the remaining 40% of the problem is solved and productized, the solution has actually evolved to a bespoke application for that customer.
Mentoring high school students through innovative and educational mentor-based programs like FIRST enables Cardinal Peak engineers to inspire the STEM workers of tomorrow.
Tesler’s passing caused a few of us to reflect on how computing has evolved into two separate categories: engineers and everyone else — and the cut/copy/paste function is an outstanding example of this separation.
Thanks to infrastructure as code (IaC), sysadmins and other IT pros are able to manage and provision their IT infrastructure (networks, virtual machines, load balancers, connection topology, etc.) through text files that look like code, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools.
