Internet & Connectivity

The July issue of Circuit Cellar features inventive ideas for embedded design projects, design tips, and essential information on design planning and security. Tommy Tyler explains how to build an MCU-based digital thermometer and John Breitenbach details how he built an Internet-enabled, cloud-based attic monitoring system. This month's interview is with Boston University's professor Ayse Kivilcim Coskun. Her research on 3-D stacked systems has been noticed in the academic world, and it could change the way electrical engineers and chip manufacturers think about energy efficiency.

Remembering Richard Wotiz 

The Circuit Cellar staff dedicates the July issue to Richard Alan Wotiz who passed away on May 30, 2012. Richard's innovative work was a wonderful contribution to this magazine.  His design ideas, lessons, and engineering insight will endure to help professional engineers, academics, and students for years to come. We extend our condolences to his family and friends.   

    

In Richard's memory, we are making six of his most recent articles available on circuitcellar.com. View Richard's articles as well as the two designs that won him first place in the DesignStellaris 2010 Design Challenge and the Wiznet iMCU 2010 Design Challenge
