Sensors Online: Internet of Things Smart Sensors Are Driving Smart Buildings

Internet of Things Smart Sensors Are Driving Smart Buildings

Basically, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of interconnected devices embedded with sensors, software, network connectivity, and electronics that enable them to collect and exchange data. Sensors, therefore, are key elements in the "things" of the IoT. They are a crucial part of what we conceive to be the next industrial revolution and will affect the way businesses, governments, and consumers interact with the physical world.

Electronic Design: Magnetic Angle Position Sensors Elicit Efficient, Energy-Saving Motor Control

Magnetic Angle Position Sensors Elicit Efficient, Energy-Saving Motor Control

In the seemingly endless quest for higher motor performance and improved system cost efficiencies, motor manufacturers are increasingly adopting a new trend: Replacing multiple magnetic Hall-effect latch sensor devices with a single Hall-effect magnetic angle sensor device for motor-commutation feedback. This trend is particularly evident in the automotive and industrial markets, where use of brushless direct-current (BLDC) motors is on the rise.
