At a dedicated event held at London's Science Museum this week, company CEO Simon Segars urged delegates to stop wasting time and invest early in the IoT, or risk being left behind by the many companies already taking advantage of it.

Tiny radio-on-a-chip devices could spur on the IoT

In a move which could give the Internet of Things (IoT) a serious kick start, researchers from Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley have created a radio-on-a-chip that is so energy efficient it can gather all the power it needs from the same electromagnetic waves that carry signals to its receiving antenna – no batteries required.

Wireless MCU suits low power applications

Texas Instruments has launched the SimpleLink CC2540T, a low power wireless MCU that can operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to 125°C. Featuring Bluetooth Low Energy functionality and USB connectivity, the CC2540T is said to be a complete solution supporting easier development.
