A Internet das Coisas (Idc)

IOT Banner
English Version                       Version en español

 

A Internet das Coisas (Idc) é a conectividade da Internet com dispositivos e objetos do cotidiano.

Um dispositivo IoC é algo com dispositivos eletrônicos integrados, conectividade à Internet e outros tipos de hardware (como detectores ou controladores).

Estes dispositivos podem comunicar e interagir entre si através da Internet.

Isso torna-os fáceis de monitorar e controlar remotamente.

A tecnologia IoC fez grandes mudanças na maneira como controlamos os nossos dispositivos domésticos todos os dias, como o aquecimento, iluminação, segurança e até eletrodomésticos (frigorifico, congelador etc.).

Estes agora podem ser controlados com smartphones, tablets e PCs, não importa onde esteja.

O primeiro dispositivo de IdC foi uma máquina de venda automática da Coca-Cola em 1982, foi conectada à Internet e transmitiu informações sobre o inventário e se as bebidas estavam frias ou não.

Essa tecnologia oferece grandes benefícios, como o monitoramento constante de idosos que moram sozinhos. Por exemplo, um dispositivo pode avisar os profissionais de saúde se a temperatura ambiente cair abaixo de um nível seguro.

Na assistência médica, por exemplo, você pode fornecer feedback ao vivo para pessoas com doenças com risco de vida, mesmo quando estão em casa.

Outro exemplo são as campainhas com câmera, senão está em casa quando alguém toca à campainha, mas o smartphone toca e vpode ver e se comunicar instantaneamente com quem está lá.

Existem tantos aplicativos para a tecnologia IdC que apenas arranhamos a superfície.

À medida que novos dispositivos de IdC são criados todos os dias, uma dinâmica completamente nova esta a iniciar-se no mundo do desenvolvimento da electrónica.

O objetivo agora não é criar sistemas grandes, mas adaptar os sistemas existentes para conectar-se à rede e comunicar com outros dispositivos.

Indo do do ponto do consumidor para aplicações industriais e Indústria 4.0.

Essa evolução multiplicou o número de novos desenvolvimentos de produtos eletrónicos com aplicativos de menor dimensão.

Estes devem estar prontos para o mercado antes de ontem e isso pressiona mais os engenheiros de desenvolvimento e seus fornecedores.

Como pode ajudar Eurocircuits?

Investimos fortemente nesta tendência para oferecer suporte aos nossos clientes, oferecendo serviços mais rápidos e dinâmicos da seguinte maneira:

  • PCB proto – entrega em 3 dias úteis como padrão, abaixo de 7 WD que tienhamos anteriormente ajaneiro de 2019.
  • STANDARD pool, RF pool and IMS pool – 5 dias úteis da entrega padrão, em vez de 7 WD.
  • Grupo DE IMPEDÂNCIA DEFINIDA – um novo serviço com entrega em 5WD como padrão que oferece um acúmulo específico para requisitos específicos de 50Ω / 90Ω.

Para todos os nossos serviços, oferecemos nossas ferramentas eC-Smart online gratuitas, o PCB Visualizer e o PCBA Visualizer.

Isso permite que nossos clientes garantam que os seus projetos estejam “À PRIMEIRA VEZ PRONTOS PARA FABRICAÇÃO”.

Tendo a vantagem de que os seus PCBs serão entregues (sem ou com montagem) “A TEMPO” e “DENTRO DO ORÇAMENTO”.

Garanta que seu projeto atenda às suas expectativas e do “TEMPO DE MERCADO”

 

 

 

Internet de las cosas (IoC)

IOT Banner
English Version                       Versão portuguesa

 

Internet de las cosas (IoC) es la conectividad de Internet a dispositivos y objetos cotidianos.

Un dispositivo IoC es algo con dispositivos electrónicos integrados, conectividad a Internet y otros tipos de hardware (como detectores o controladores).

Estos dispositivos pueden comunicarse e interactuar entre sí a través de Internet.

Esto los hace fáciles de monitorear y controlar de forma remota.

La tecnología IoC ha realizado cambios masivos en la forma en que controlamos nuestros dispositivos domésticos cotidianos, como calefacción, iluminación, seguridad e incluso electrodomésticos (refrigerador, congeladores, etc.).

Ahora se pueden controlar con teléfonos inteligentes, tabletas y PC, sin importar en qué parte del mundo se encuentre.

El primer dispositivo IoC fue una máquina expendedora de Coca-Cola en 1982, estaba conectado a Internet y transmitía información sobre el inventario y si las bebidas estaban frías o no.

Esta tecnología ofrece grandes beneficios, como el monitoreo constante de las personas mayores que viven solas. Por ejemplo, un dispositivo podría advertir a los cuidadores si la temperatura ambiente cae por debajo de un nivel seguro.

En la atención médica, por ejemplo, puede proporcionar retroalimentación en vivo para aquellos con enfermedades que amenazan la vida, incluso cuando están en casa.

Otro ejemplo son los timbres con cámaras, no estás en casa cuando alguien toca el timbre pero suena el teléfono inteligente y puedes ver y comunicarte instantáneamente con quien esté allí.

Hay tantas aplicaciones para la tecnología IoC que solo hemos arañado la superficie.

A medida que se crean nuevos dispositivos IoC todos los días, se ha iniciado una dinámica completamente nueva en el mundo del desarrollo de la electrónica.

El objetivo ahora no radica en crear sistemas grandes sino en adaptar los sistemas existentes para conectarse a la red y comunicarse con otros dispositivos.

Esto va del consumidor a las aplicaciones industriales y a la Industria 4.0.

Esta evolución ha multiplicado el número de nuevos desarrollos de productos electrónicos con aplicaciones más pequeñas que grandes.

Los proyectos deben estar listos para el mercado antes de ayer y esto ejerce más presión sobre los ingenieros de desarrollo y sus proveedores.

¿Cómo puede ayudar Eurocircuits?

Hemos invertido mucho en esta tendencia para apoyar a nuestros clientes ofreciéndoles servicios más rápidos y dinámicos de la siguiente manera:

  • PCB proto – entrega en 3 días hábiles como estándar por debajo de 7 WD en enero de 2019.
  • STANDARD pool, RF pool and IMS pool – 5 días hábiles de entrega estándar de 7 WD.
  • Grupo de IMPEDANCIA DEFINIDA – un nuevo servicio con entrega 5WD como estándar que ofrece una acumulación específica para requisitos específicos de 50Ω / 90Ω.

Para todos nuestros servicios, ofrecemos nuestras herramientas eC-Smart en línea gratuitas, el Visualizador de PCB y el Visualizador de PCBA.

Esto les permite a nuestros clientes asegurarse de que sus diseños sean “A LA PRIMERA VEZ CORRECTOS y listos para la FABRICACIÓN”.

Esto tiene la ventaja de que sus PCB se entregan (sin placa o pobladas) “A TIEMPO” y “DENTRO DEL PRESUPUESTO”. Y asegurarse de que su proyecto cumpla con sus expectativas y del “TIEMPO DE MERCADO”.

 

 

 

Defined Impedance Calculators

Defined Impedance Calculator Banner

There are many different Impedance calculators for PCB designers to use, some are free such as the one available to Eurocircuits customers and some you need to pay for a licence or a monthly subscription.

The aim of them all is to provide the necessary track/gap and isolation values for the layout and manufacture of your PCB.

The interfaces vary from one to another as does the way you input the parameters that are used by the calculator and this is where a user must take care.

Since the very successful launch of the Eurocircuits DEFINED IMPEDANCE pool service we have received feedback that results between our calculator and others varies.

This is something that we took very seriously and launched an investigation to establish why there was a difference.

What We Discovered

It turned out that the parameters required for one system were different to another. For example, the value H1 in our calculator is not the same as H1 in another calculator.

In the example below it is in fact the H2 in the other calculator.

Different Calculator Input Graphic

Magnified Graphic of Buildup & Parameters

In addition, the H2 value in the other system is actually equal to H1 + T in our calculator as above.

Therefore, adding the same values for H1 & H2 in the Eurocircuits calculator compared to another may very well deliver different results, as the corresponding input parameters may differ.

To verify that the Eurocircuits calculator provides the correct results we ran several tests:

  • Firstly, we used the same parameters in our calculator and the Altium calculator and as expected the results we different.
  • We then corrected the parameters used in the Altium calculator to what they require (e.g. H1+T) and the results were extremely close (Zdiff = 100.035E vs 99.146463E).

It is important to use the correct dielectric constant (εr) value for the selected material.

This value will change depending upon the selected frequency.

In the Eurocircuits calculator all the known values are automatically updated based on the selected build-up.

Another point to be aware of is how the calculator generates the results. Is it calculated using the correct formula or simply using a known ‘Rule of Thumb’ equation?

For example, a ‘Rule of Thumb’ equation for a Differential Impedance value is 2x that of the Characteristic Impedance value.

This is only a rough and non-mathematical value which may vary significantly from the real value.

It is important to check how these values are derived?

Conclusion

When using an impedance calculator, you must ensure that the actual values entered, correspond to the parameters required and are not simply copied from one calculator to the next:

  • Eurocircuits’ Impedance calculator uses real values as defined in the supplier’s data sheets.
  • Eurocircuits also calculates the correct Differential Impedance values using the correct formula and not a ‘Rule of Thumb’ method.

Finally, all calculators provide theoretical impedance values as they cannot take in to account the variables and tolerances of the manufacturing process.

This means that whilst the calculator gives you a value, the actual value measured on the PCB may well be different.

It is Eurocircuits’ experience that the measured values on the PCB are within a ±10% of our calculated values.
