Blog Review – Monday, December 06, 2016

This week, several blogs pose the question: How far does the IoT reach? Into space, the summit of Everest or just making industry smarter? Synopsys helps reduce layout time; Dassault Systemes prescribes Precision Medicine

In Europe, everyone is getting excited about the Industrial IoT, with factory automation and smart factories. Another take was presented at GE Minds and Machines 2016, by Intel IoT VP and GM of the Internet of Things Group, Jonathan Ballon. He neatly bridges both companies during his career and his blog is an interesting read about how Intel and GE technology will advance the Industrial Internet for healthcare, energy, transportation with real-time intelligence.

Virtual reality (VR) reaches new heights, as chronicled by Brian Burke, Nvidia. Its Pascal architecture is used in Lens Matched Shading, used in in Solfar’s Everest VR, VR experience. Be warned, the headset can cause butterflies, dizzy spells and nausea, it is so lifelike, he says.

20.8billion is just a number, but what does it mean to connect that many connected ‘things’, wonders Christine Young, Maxim Integrated. She headed to IDTechEx to find out more and reports on stretchable electronics, structural electronics, electrification and solar powered race cars, among other topics.

Breakthroughs in 3D technologies will impact the medical industry, believes Stephen Chadwick, Dassault Systemes. His blog explores the realization of Precision Medicine, using big data to deliver the right treatment to the patient at the right time.

Cautiously peering over the edge of the IoT, Jeff Miler, Mentor Graphics, debuts a blog series about the IoT, beginning with a detailed definition of an edge device as he explores Life on the IoT Edge.

How to complete layout in minutes rather than hours is the promise given by Graham Etchells, Synopsys Design, as he examines analog cell layout and guides the reader through symbolic editor features to help in the cause.

Reaching for the stars is not sufficient for Paul McClellan, Cadence Design Systems, he looks at the Internet of Space and the building of femto-satellites. If you are not sure what a femto-satellite is or what it is for, the blog is an informative read.
