Finish Makes a Difference in Final PCB Performance

The impact of final surface finish on circuit loss will depend not only on the type of surface finish but on the thickness of the substrate material and the type of transmission-line technology, such as microstrip or grounded coplanar waveguide (GCPW). This posting will describe some of the effects of various finishes.

Open cellular standards will drive ‘massive IoT’ uptake

Several technologies are vying for a slice of the LPWAN sector that will underpin the IoT, but only low power LTE promises to support rapid mass deployment

The Internet of Things (IoT) will require several wireless technologies if it’s to meet its potential. For example, Bluetooth low energy or IEEE 802.15.4 are good choices for battery-powered sensors sending data to the Cloud via a building’s Local Area Network (LAN). But for sensors that are constantly moving, or are remote from a LAN, short-range wireless technologies run into problems.
