We live in a world undergoing a digital revolution—one of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and big data—creating opportunities for digitization and new service-based business models. Synapse architects, integrates, and delivers connected systems that seamlessly blend hardware and software, including aspects touching every part of the ecosystem such as security, connectivity, and algorithms.
[Download] Designing IoT: Data Collection in Harsh Environments
It’s often a significant challenge to collect data in environments where conditions are difficult for electronics to tolerate, like industrial facilities, commercial kitchens, or on the seafloor. But with smart engineering and the right approach, data collected in these harsh environments can provide enormous value.
[Watch] Why This Expert Doesn't Think Crowd Temp Screening is a Joke
Jon Ross explains high resolution thermal imaging and how it could help make the return to entertainment venues, hospitals, campuses and more a better experience in the wake of COVID-19.
Why Pursue IoT?
In this second chapter of the IoT series, we’ll show that IoT is about the “Information of Things.” The value of IoT follows the Pyramid of Knowledge, generating increasing value as data gathered from IoT devices is processed into information and the resulting knowledge & insights.
What is IoT?
Our Principal IoT Systems Architect, Paul Ganichot, breaks it down in this new blog series that goes through the what, why, who, how, where, when of the “Information of Things.” In this first post, we’ll define the Internet of Things, decompose its main components, summarize the IoT ecosystem, and demystify buzzwords such as Digital Twin, Digital Engineering, and Virtual Sensor.
[Watch] Rethinking the Power Industry
While we work towards making green energy more sustainable, how can we keep up with the increasing demand on our aging energy infrastructure?
Exploiting the Opportunity Window of 5G
The largest carriers and equipment vendors have much to gain from the deployment of 5G, and they're prepared to weather the long roll out. However, for innovative businesses that see 5G as an opportunity to disrupt their own industry, yet lack the capitalization or patience of those firms, Alex Sutton offers some key considerations for designing transformative 5G systems in the face of rollout uncertainty.
IoT Innovation: Assemble Where You Can, Innovate Where You Can’t
There is no one right answer for IoT. Even simple functions require intelligent hardware and complicated back-end structures. Businesses frequently get caught up thinking about the “how” rather than the creative “what." Fortunately, there’s a better way forward.
Data Exchange In An Instant: An IoT Interoperability Case Study
Interoperability can be challenging and often has many pitfalls. Using a recent case study, we're illustrating the importance of a deliberate and regimented approach to developing a connected device.
BlueSee™: Examining Your Wireless World
The world is increasingly full of devices that communicate via Bluetooth® Low Energy; Synapse’s BlueSee™ debugging tool provides a scriptable window into that world.
Synapse at Bluetooth World 2017
In late March, Synapse attended Bluetooth World in San Jose, CA with Cambridge Consultants. Talks around the current generation of BLE generally focused on how to make more natural experiences for consumers, but Synapse engineers are excited for the new, higher level standards that are coming soon!
Digital Security for Connected Devices
Digital security and privacy are important parts of system design of digital products large and small, but are often overlooked until late in the development process. Here, we discuss the current state of security for connected products and the Internet of Things, and discuss systems engineering strategies for bringing secure products to market.
