Apache Promotes IoT Database Project
datanami, September 25th, 2020
An open source Internet of Things database effort has been elevated as a 'top-level project' by the Apache Software Foundation

"Launched as a research project at Tsinghua University and accepted as an incubator effort in 2018, Apache IoTDB targets industrial IoT applications and attendant analytics and data storage requirements.

The IoTDB effort addresses current data management shortfalls exhibited by both relational and key-value store databases as industrial IoT deployments add to the data tsunami. Promoters position the IoT database as 'the missing link' between current IoT data and applications..."

All-new Intel Atom e6000E and 11th Generation Intel Core processors aimed at AI, IoT and industrial uses were launched Sept. 23 at the company's Intel Industrial Summit 2020 virtual event

"Built to expand and solidify Intel's market share in the growing IoT, edge and industrial markets, the new products feature designs and architectures aimed to meet the needs of a wide range of Intel customers, John Healy, the vice president of Intel's internet of things group, told Enterprise AI. Healy, who is also the company's general manager of platform management and customer engineering, said the new releases were designed by partnering with leaders in vertical markets where Intel does much of its business to help customers deliver new products..."

IoT gateways are becoming an increasingly important link in the IoT security and device authentication value chain and emerging as a crucial conduit for intelligent operations across the entire IoT

"The new wave of next-generation smart IoT gateways has arrived at an opportune time, enabling a breadth of novel security, intelligence, and authentication operations at the edge, causing IoT vendors to revisit their deployment and management strategies.

According to ABI Research, there will be 21.4 million next-gen smart IoT gateways shipped in 2025..."

Tips To Select The Right Microcontrollers For IoT
IoT Agenda, September 23rd, 2020
Microcontrollers offer advantages over other processors for IoT deployments, including efficient energy use. Understand the market and criteria for microcontroller selection

"The microcontroller is one of the most commonly used components in IoT deployments, but picking the right one for each IoT project requires some consideration.

The small, integrated circuit typically includes a processor, memory, and input and output peripherals -- all of which are contained on a single chip. It's dedicated to control a limited number of functions -- often just a single operation, such as regulating the operations of electromechanical systems in a device. The microcontroller design performs a specific task, and then it's embedded into a system where it perpetually runs that function..."
