Mouser Electronics Inc. has introduced an updated Internet of Things (IoT) applications website. The enhanced IoT Applications site brings together the two evolving technologies critical for IoT: wireless connectivity for interconnecting embedded systems and smart sensors. Combined with recent advances in low power microcontrollers, these new ‘things’ are being connected to the Internet easily and inexpensively, ushering in a second industrial revolution.
The newly updated IoT Applications site, available on Mouser.com, makes it even easier for developers to find valuable information about this expanding field. The Technology section starts with the Overview tab, which provides a practical understanding of IoT technology and systems. A block diagram of a typical IoT sensor node explains how this IoT system operates, with links to components available from Mouser.
The Connectivity tab explains the different wired and wireless protocols used for interconnecting IoT systems. The Data Collection tab discusses the sensors, smart sensors and MEMs sensors used to collect data. The Processors and Power tab explains the low-power requirements, security, and power management used for processors and microcontrollers. Last, the Storage tab discusses the memory used for data storage in IoT projects, including cloud solutions.
