Powered by UBM DeusM, the integrated marketing services arm of UBM, Planet Analog is an even more enhanced community-based website consisting of blogs, message boards, live chats, whitepapers, and other educational resources. The relaunch gives analog designers the real-time knowledge sharing, interactive engagement, learning, and mentorship that are critical to keeping up with the rapid advances and new applications of analog components.

Integration Nation is designed to help engineers understand how analog integration technologies and techniques are evolving to meet new system design challenges. Sponsored by Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., Integration Nation will deliver an intensified focus on trends and solutions currently enabling a new generation of functionality at lower cost, with less space, and lower power, while increasing time to market, reliability, security, performance, and ease of use.

"Analog designers form a unique blend of engineering discipline, creativity, individualism, passion, art, and out-of the box thinking," said Kathy Astromoff, CEO, Electronics, UBM Tech. "Planet Analog is their new playground, and we are very pleased to be realizing this new community with such a visionary partner as Maxim Integrated."

"Analog integration allows systems designers to focus on the true go-to-market differentiation of their designs and enables them to create systems that are smaller and more energy-efficient," said Pirooz Parvarandeh, Maxim Integrated's Chief Technology Officer. "Integration Nation will provide a forum to help engineers interact and communicate with one another as well as explore technologies for future systems that will be smarter and more connected."

UBM Tech named former electronic design and applications engineer Brad Albing Editor in Chief of Planet Analog. Albing brings more than 20 years of expertise in analog circuitry, technical writing, and teaching to the position. Albing was most recently a Field Applications Engineer with Intersil Corp.

"We're delighted Brad has joined UBM Tech to lead this new site," said Patrick Mannion, Brand Director of EDN, Test & Measurement World, and Planet Analog at UBM Tech. "His years of experience as an engineer in this industry will enable him to truly understand the goals and experiences of the Planet Analog community."

"Planet Analog is a community where analog aficionados, experts and newbies alike, can connect daily to hone their skills, share their experiences, and have some fun," said Albing. "I look forward to doing my part to enable the next generation of analog innovation – and innovators."

The Planet Analog community is supplemented by a presence on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. For Planet Analog sponsorship opportunities, contact David Blaza, VP of Electronics, UBM Tech, at [email protected] or 415-947-6929.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
