Top stories in June on the Embedded blog

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

Last month saw some significant 'long tail' interest in older stories on the blog, back to 2017 and even 2010.

From the more recent stories, the move to superconductivity at room temperature saw the most interest, although the need for high pressures is still a barrier to overcome. The move to 5nm chips is also on the way with the first certified low power design platform, while the emergence of narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) capability at the lower frequency of 450MHz will reduce power consumption further and extend the range between sensor nodes in the Internet of Things, particularly on farms. This is why Sony subsidiary Altair showed the technology operating on connected tractors. Microsoft buying ThreadX remains an interesting story, and we are keeping a close eye on how that will emerge in the market against Amazon FreeRTOS.
