Top Design Challenges for IoT and Wearables
The Internet of Things and wearables revolution changed everything, from size and connectivity requirements to firmware and integration challenges. New requirements ripple through the technology supply chain, such as semiconductor design, passive components, software and cloud. More than any other new requirement, however, is lower power consumption. This whitepaper discusses how to reduce oscillator power consumption while achieving optimal oscillation margin.
A New Challenge for wearable and IoT applications
While software integration, connectivity, RF design and security drive a large part of the design cycle within IoT applications, the one challenge that has remained consistent over time is power consumption. Abracon’s W-Series quartz crystals offer low ESR specifications in combination with low CL options to address the energy-saving MCU & portable communication chipset market trends. It’s the most comprehensive series on the market with the lowest CL and lowest ESR available.
