An important piece of the smart control ecosystem is the nervous system that is sensing, measuring, and reporting back information about the environment for processing. Sensor nodes are one of the most scalable, cost-sensitive, and complex pieces of a smart control system. Unlike data aggregators, a single deployment or a connected system can have >100 sensor nodes feeding data for decision-making and control.

Join Raman Sharma for an in-depth webinar that explores the special constraints on the sensor nodes that don’t exist in the rest of the system, such as:

  • Low cost—Device, installation, and maintenance
  • Long battery life—5-10 years from a coin cell battery
  • Small form-factor—The devices must be small and out of the way
  • Security and encryption—Preventing unauthorized access to the devices and network
  • Local processing—Minimize network activity and extend battery life
  • Sensors—Temperature, ambient light, pressure, motion, infrared, humidity, etc.
  • RF connectivity—Both proprietary and standardized implementations

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the above topics as well as EFM32 Cortex™-M products from Silicon Labs and how these devices are ideal processors for sensor nodes.
