How to Avoid Rookie Mistakes in Acoustic Measurements
Now Available on Demand | PCB Piezotronics

In this informative webinar, common pitfalls and recommended best practices when making acoustics measurements will be addressed. The different types of microphones will be explained and guidelines will be given for choosing the right microphone for your application. Several different levels of microphone calibration will be discussed as well as how to choose the level that is best matched to your application. Once your microphone is selected and calibrated, there are still many potential pitfalls. Learn how to choose the right microphone averaging technique, how to understand reflective surfaces, minimize unwanted inputs, choose the correct frequency weighting, and understand near-field and far-field concepts.

Embedded Security Webinar – Overcoming Embedded Systems Challenges: The Reality of Securing the IoT
Now Available on Demand | Sensors Online

Sensors and embedded systems are changing the way in which humanity interacts with and observes the universe. In order to make the IoT a reality, developers must overcome challenges such as sensor interface, data processing, low power design and most importantly, securing their devices. Securing an embedded system is not a trivial endeavor and possibly one of the most neglected and least understood areas of development. This Webinar provides a sneak preview of the full-day Pre-Conference Symposium that took place at Sensors Expo 2016 in San Jose. Attendees of this webinar will gain technical knowledge and tools to understand the importance of securing their embedded sensor systems.

IoT 2.0 – Sensor Innovation Moves From “Smart” to “Intelligent”
Now Available on Demand | Parker Hannifin

Sensors are crucial to making technology natural, intuitive, and immersive for humans. Sensors are also the foundational elements needed to help evolve many different application areas, particularly in the Internet of Things (IoT) market. In this Pre-Conference Symposium, we will explore how this technology is applied to specific sub-vertical domains in the IoT space, specifically examining how the sensors are enabling the evolution from “smart” systems to becoming “intelligent” systems. Some of the sub-verticals that will be examined are: wearables, smart buildings, and automotive. This Webinar provides a sneak preview of the full-day Pre-Conference Symposium that took place at Sensors Expo 2016 in San Jose. Attendees of this webinar will explore the impact to consumer spending and retail markets, and how other companies can capitalize on the trend to develop more “intelligent” systems.

Sensors and Embedded Systems in the Era of the IoT: The Top 7 Challenges and What Engineers Need to Do Today to Succeed
ROHM, Lapis Semiconductor, Kionix

From the need to cope with small memories, power constraints, and system complexity to wrestling with the interfaces, evolving standards and understanding enough analog in order to extract meaningful information out of sensors, engineers are being forced to move out of their comfort zones and acquire new skill sets. In fact, two-thirds of respondents in a recent survey by Sensors Magazine said that they want more information on connected devices and the IoT.

In this special eBook, we look at the key issues and challenges impacting engineers designing for the IoT and the steps they can take to develop reliable and resilient products.

Enhancing Sensor Reliability Through Venting
Now Available On Demand | W.L. Gore & Associates

Your robust, highly accurate sensor met all of the performance requirements and passed the industry standards testing for your application. You used rugged seals in your housing to protect the sensitive electronics from water and contaminant ingress. However, after the sensor was in operation for several months, it failed. Why?

Hear how Carrie Higgins of W. L. Gore & Associates investigates the causes of sensor failure and how venting alleviates many of these issues. In this webinar you will learn about the:

  • Challenges of designing sensor housings for rugged applications
  • Causes and effects of pressure differentials
  • Impact of these issues on sealed enclosures used in harsh environments
  • Proven technology to extend product life by alleviating pressure variations
