USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) has evolved into, well, a powerhouse, now capable of delivering up to 100 W of power thanks to version 3.0 of the spec. This opens USB up to a world of new power applications beyond just mobile devices. Here, Ganesh Subramaniam, Senior Business Unit Director for USB Type-C Product Management at Cypress Semiconductor, reviews how his company is attacking these new markets with a range of AC, DC, and control solutions that run from source to synch.

The NRF2401+ is a very capable wireless unit, allowing for data transfer between two Arduinos or similar boards with a fairly straightforward setup programming-wise. Unfortunately, the wiring involved in attaching an Arduino and an NRF24L01+ is less than straightforward, and after struggling with questionable adapters and pasta-like wire arrangements, I happened upon the RF-Nano—which I immediately purchased.

End-to-end security, going from the Edge of the IoT to the Cloud, is not something you hear a lot about. Why? Because it’s hard to implement. Securing the individual pieces is far easier, but then you’re left to connect those sometimes incongruent pieces.

Today's video and imaging processing involves developing complex computer algorithms that enable systems to capture and display information and high-resolution images. Designers of these types of systems require high-performance computing, memory and connectivity resources to achieve high-resolution imaging with rich, vivid detail. Because they can perform thousands of tasks in parallel to maximize data throughput, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are excellent platforms for these applications.

AI is starting to move from the cloud to the Edge. AI research now offers the intriguing possibility of using thousands of hours of powerful computing resources to train and refine a neural network that will then be able to run on cheap, low power devices. This makes possible edge AI devices, which can function even when offline, so a network connection is not essential. This approach leverages the power of evolutionary-style neural network training techniques, such as adversarial neural networks.
