Long Range and Mesh? A Viewer’s Bluetooth Question Answered Barry Manz
In April 2017, Mouser hosted the webinar "Bluetooth 5: Reinventing Connectivity and Advancing Industrial IoT." This is one of the many great questions that came from that webinar.

Shaping Smarter Cities: Sigfox and LoRa: Missing from the Autonomous Vehicles Barry Manz
Autonomous vehicles could benefit from low power wireless area networks (LPWANs); however, only IEEE 802.11p and narrowband Long-Term Evolution (LTE) standards are being considered.

Solid-State RF Power is Coming to Industrial Systems. Slowly. Barry Manz
Industrial RF heating systems commonly use a magnetron for power amplification, but solid-state solutions are becoming a more viable solution.

Your Microwave Oven May Soon Become Obsolete Barry Manz
Microwave ovens use magnetrons because they're cheap and robust. But RF power transistors are overcoming the limitations that keep them out of microwaves. Solid state power could transform the microwave into a full-fledged cooking appliance.

Millimeter Wavelengths, The Next Wireless Frontier Barry Manz
The use of very high frequencies for communication has always been "just around the corner," where, because of significant technical challenges, it's remained for 50 years. Now, faced with scarce spectrum available at lower frequencies, the wireless industry is determined to overcome those challenges.

Creating Safer Roads for Autonomous Vehicles Mark Patrick
Self-driving cars are a significant and exciting technological development, but the roads they drive on are ripe for transformation as well.

Bluetooth 5 Poised to Take On IIoT Deborah Ray
Several capabilities introduced with the Bluetooth 5.0 spec will enable Bluetooth 5 to meet the demanding communication needs of industrial environments: Increased speed, longer message length, increased bandwidth, ability to coexist with other wireless devices and frequencies, and mesh networking capability.

Will the Auto Industry Ever Get Telematics Right? Barry Manz
Few other human-machine interfaces (HMIs) present as many challenges as the modern automobile, so have pity on the weary auto industry designer tasked with trying to come to grips with telematics. It’s only rival in complexity is the commercial airliner, whose flight deck remains chock full of knobs, dials, and switches even after wholesale changes that migrated functions to large touch screen displays like those in the Airbus 380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner. At least pilots are highly trained, technically astute professionals, however, while drivers range from being technology haters to “enthusiasts” who like to tweak engine control modules for higher performance. Designing an interface that is usable by such a spectrum of drivers has got to be insanely difficult.

Your Mileage (and Other Things) May Vary Barry Manz
The practice of taking liberties with performance specifications to show a product in its best light is obviously nothing new in the electronics industry, and many others as well. If you’re old enough to remember, the output of stereo amplifiers and receivers was rated as “peak power”, which is typically five or six times higher than RMS power, but for the anointed it certainly makes the amplifier appear to be a real powerhouse. The output power of RF power transistors is even today sometimes specified at a single frequency where it’s highest, even though it falls off below and above it. And so on.

Terrorists Take to the Skies Barry Manz
Like most people, I suspect, when quadcopters first appeared my first thoughts were about how totally cool they are followed by, “Gee, what could I do with one?” So it’s not surprising that terrorists have asked the same question and have come up with an obvious answer: Make flying Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RC-IEDs), which the U.S. Central Command believes they are already working on and have possibly developed.
