Stuff goes wrong - it is a fact of life. Embedded devices are typically very reliable, but not immune to failure. A common failure mode is a lock-up - the device freezes and will not respond to any user interaction.

PODCAST
EMBEDDED COMPUTING DESIGN
 
When we discuss AI, the discussion typically revolves around processing or algorithms. But I was reminded recently that power plays a big part in AI. How is that, you ask? Well, check out this week?s Five Minutes with?discussion with Ian Mazsa, a Director of Product Management and Business Development at Vicor to understand why you need to be concerned about power if you?re designing for AI.

There are many benefits in changing to the newest version of the TLS specification. One significant difference you will notice is the reduced number of round-trips when performing a full handshake. Older versions of the TLS protocol require two complete round-trips before the client sends the application data. With TLS v1.3, only one round-trip is required!
