Avnet Embedded‘s new compact SMARC module with extreme low power consumption

Avnet Embedded has announced a scalable SMARC 2.1.1™ system-on-module family designed for extremely low power consumption combined with good computing performance. The compact CPU boards are suitable for battery/solar-powered systems, IoT edge products, portable embedded controllers, handheld test and measurement devices, and mobile medical systems. The new power-efficient module generation is a further technology evolution step from microcontrollers (MCUs) to microprocessors (MPUs).

From trashcans to Street View: the everyday data that’s saving lives

/
You might think that smart cities are all about operational efficiency, but we don’t. We believe that smart cities are about people and their data can save lives.

When energy is a problem, could data be a solution?

We’ve lost count of the many and inventive ways that organisations look to meet their sustainability goals, keep on top of costs and transform to operate more efficiently and effectively. And like the old adage about not seeing the forest for the trees, we know that quite often they are overlooking one obvious, but significant change that can address all three issues in one single action: through better management of energy consumption.

It’s a smart time to be luxe

The hallmark of modern life is a lack of time, so it stands to reason that the most popular products have an element of productivity built in. This need for speed has conveniently coincided with the growth of embedded computing capability, opening up a world of functionality for product designers who are looking to have the upper hand in the market.
