Cryptography is the security practice of Data Encryption for hiding secret information. Encryption is the conversion of data into a form, called a ciphertext. Decryption is the reverse, in other words, moving from the unintelligible ciphertext back to plaintext. With the computer technology, the digital data is more prone to security threats and information hacking. […]
Researchers from Columbia University’s Intrusion Detection Systems Lab have concluded that embedded devices are over 20 times more vulnerable to Internet-based threats than Enterprise Networks. As network connectivity in embedded devices becomes commonplace and our reliance on these devices grows, so has the importance of protecting these devices from Internet-based threats. In enterprise environments, firewalls, […]
Atmel, a leader in microcontroller and touch technology solutions, announced it has achieved the touch controller market’s longest proximity sensing range of over 10 inches (25cm) with the QTouch AT42QT2120 Capacitive Touch Controller. A longer sensing range enables a system to wake up as an object or finger approaches the system. The system then turns […]
When designing embedded wireless technologies for worldwide deployment, it is important to consider the different regional regulatory requirements. Radio regulations vary around the world for some of the frequencies most attractive for unlicensed radio control and telemetry. For some applications, standardized radios operating at 2.4 GHz (for example Bluetooth, ZigBee, or Wi-Fi) can be used […]
