With 3D printing in what might be considered the early adulthood phase of its development, scientists now are turning attention to evolving 4D printing, which gives 3D-printed objects the ability to change shape autonomously. A team at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), has created a new reversible 4D printing technology that not only allows a 3D-printed object change shape either in response to heat or water, but also to revert back to its original shape without human intervention.

The ESP32 from Espressif has been around for quite a few years now. For many of those years the ESP32 seemed to have the reputation that it was a low-cost maker module for hobbyist and developers interested in one-off projects. Over the past year I’ve seen the ESP32 not only designed into several production systems but have also seen its capabilities and ecosystem grow in ways that make it extremely interesting to many IoT developers. In today’s post, we’ll explore five reasons that I find the ESP32 to be an intriguing solution for the IoT. The ESP32’s capabilities and ecosystem have grown in ways that make the module extremely interesting to IoT developers. (Image source: Espressif Systems). Reason #1 – It’s Inexpensive.

We live in the era of smart silicon, where complex system-on-chips (SoCs) connect to the cloud and communicate with one another. These silicon, processor based SoCs have been implemented in almost every kind of IoT sensor, device, system and edge and cloud networks. Thanks to the connectivity enabled by smart silicon, we now have silicon talking to silicon. These binary communications go on all around us, from our automobiles and smart phones to home-based appliances, thermostats, cameras and digital assistants and wearable medical devices on our bodies. Further, all of these devices know something private about us. Collectively, they probably know everything. But this connectivity and resulting convenience comes at a cost, namely, easy acc.

The IoT has grown to the point that everyone and their brother is in the process of connecting their products to the Internet. This is great because it opens new revenue generating opportunities for businesses and in some cases completely new business models that can generate rapid growth. The problem that I am seeing though is that in several cases there seems to be little to no interest in securing these devices. (I draw this conclusion from the fact that embedded conferences, webinars, articles and even social media conversations seem to draw far less interest then nearly any other topic). In this post I’m going to explore the primary reasons why I believe development teams are neglecting security in their embedded products and explain w.

The coming of silicon photonic technology in the datacom and telecom industries has been foretold for the last several decades. Indeed, replacing copper wires with fiber optics and silicon photonic interfaces has been occurring in these markets, just at a slower pace than predicted. Chris Cole, VP of Advanced Development at II-VI, challenges the expectation of a wide-spread replacement of copper wires with silicon photonic interfaces. During his keynote at DesignCon 2020, Cole went so far as to call this expectation a myth. The original goal of optical fiber and related silicon chips was to overcome the limitations of copper wires and support faster interconnects between data centers. To achieve this goal, data center need optical elements
