Designing Power Efficient Solutions for your IoT Sensor

Bogdan Anton, Senior Application Engineer
Robert Schreiber, Product Marketing Manager
Lee Koh, Senior Marketing Manager (host)

When designing a battery powered application, one of the most difficult tasks is to create a low power, highly efficient solution while preserving the system power budget. Microchip provides a comprehensive analog ecosystem that encompasses, effective Battery Chargers, ultra-low quiescent current low dropout LDO regulators, and low-power high-resolution Delta-Sigma Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs). So, if extending battery life, and capturing every uA possible to create a power efficient IOT design is your goal, THIS IS THE WEBINAR FOR YOU!

Key takeaways for attendees:

  • It is important to engage early with the power design resulting in best power efficiency
  • How an efficient power design process should look like and what tools can make your design easy
  • What advantage you will earn working with a one stop supplier offering all you need for your efficient power path design out of one hand including products, tools and expert support

Connectivity Made Easy for your IoT Sensor Design

Amr Sayed, Senior Software Engineer
Jason Tollefson, Senior Product Marketing Manager
Lee Koh, Senior Marketing Manager (host)

Communication is one of the biggest challenges in sensor design. Making the right decision at the beginning is challenging. There are many dynamic regulations in the world, scalability and agility of technologies, power budgets, maintenance over time, space limitations, secure communication, and cost. Do you face these challenges in your design? You should not miss this event! Hear about our latest and greatest solutions including Wi-Fi, and Ethernet families.

Key takeaways for attendees:

  • Communication in an IoT design can be complex but with a partner offering a comprehensive solution package it can be made easy
  • Product and system agility is instrumental for a successful IoT design and strategy
  • System end-to-end approach from Sensor to Cloud and back is fundamental

Brian Hammill, Principal Embedded Solution Engineer
Xavier Bignalet, Security Product Marketing Manager
Lee Koh, Senior Marketing Manager (host)

Security is no longer a choice. Attacks occur on an increasingly frequent basis and new government regulations are being put in place everywhere in the world. Learn how to best secure your devices, your systems, and your secrets. We will update you on the latest regulations and best practices for robust secure designs. We’ll cover low power considerations, Cloud connectivity, and the all-important act of provisioning. Security has become a “must have” for today’s designs and after you attend this session, you’ll agree it is a “must see” session!

Key takeaways for attendees:

  • Why data security is not just a cost adder but can also enable new revenue
  • There is not a 1 size fits it all data security implementation. With the right partner that can offer all key building blocks from creating a risk analysis together to the right implementation in the system is the key element making this complex subject easy
  • Data security is no joke – new regulations on the way
