Embedded.com Tech Focus Newsletter (1-6-14): Embedded building blocks for consumer electronics

January 06, 2014

What consumer electronics owes to embedded technology

Many mobile/consumer devices are dependent not only on a variety of embedded MCUs that offload the main CPU with which users interact but on an embedded infrastructure of network routers and base stations as well.

Slideshow: Cool wearable devices at CES 2014

The 2014 CES will showcase a number of wearable devices,ranging from a waterproof heads-up monitor for swimming goggle lenses to brain-sensing headbands and wearable locator/phones designed for kids.

Mobile TV: must-see at CES 2014

Not to be missed at CES 2014 this week are demos of how the motion video displays of movies displayed on smartphones or tablets can be sharpened with the same degree of quality as on large screen TVs.

Gesture UI at CES 2014 taps ultrasound

At CES 2014 Elliptic Labs will exhibit its Elliptic SDK, which uses ultrasound for touchless gesturing on Android and Windows operating systems.

Gesture recognition–first step toward 3D UIs?

Gesture recognition is the first step to fully 3D interaction with computing devices. Here are the challenges and techniques to overcome them.

The challenges of multi-touch gesture interfaces

The key to understanding multi-touch touch panels is to realize that a touch is not the same thing as a mouse click.

Designing sense electrodes for non-uniform and curved 3D touchpad surfaces

The author explains capacitive sensing in touchpads designed for non-uniform and curved 3D surfaces.

Using 3D sensors to bring depth discernment to embedded vision apps

Assessing the depth sensor technology alternatives available for building vision applications with the ability to sense objects in three dimensions.

Developing OpenCV computer vision apps for the Android platform

An introduction to OpenCVAndroid, a set of open source tools for building embedded vision applications for the Android platform.

Implementing effective floating point support in wireless base station designs

How floating point-based DSP can be used to deal with the complex matrix inversion problems faced by designers of LTE wireless MIMO base stations.

Designing an ARM-based Cloud RAN cellular/wireless base station

A novel architecture for baseband processing that combines ARM’s Cortex A57 processor with a real-time, reconfigurable modem processing unit (MPU).

Leveraging high-volume CMOS for MEMS-based frequency control

How combining CMOS and micro-electromechanical (MEMS) devices on a single die can be used to integrate single-chip frequency-control into embedded applications.
