Mouser and STMicroelectronics Release New eBook Offering Industry Expert Advice on Smart Home Device Development

October 26, 2020 – Mouser Electronics, a distributor of Electronic components focused ON introducing new products to drive industry innovation, announces a new e-book, 7 Experts on Designing Commercially Successful Smart Home Devices, in partnership with STMicroelectronics. : How to Design Commercially Successful Smart Home Devices”). This book explores strategies smart home device designers should employ to overcome various challenges. Industry experts from top-tier companies such as Microsoft, Cisco and Ingersoll Rand offer their views on the most important factors in the development of new Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Residential and commercial buildings have evolved to incorporate smart design into a wide range of applications, with smart devices controlling everything from lighting and environmental conditions to HVAC and security. These interconnected systems require careful planning by design engineers and a detailed understanding of the specific needs of a successful interconnected device. Smart buildings and cities combine sensors, processors, artificial intelligence (AI) and connectivity solutions into a network, forcing engineers to master a wide range of technologies and products.

A new ebook from Mouser and ST, 7 Experts on Designing Commercially Successful Smart Home Devices, provides developers and engineers with a wealth of thought-provoking content covering topics such as edge processing, user experience, and lifecycle design. The e-book also contains product information on practical ST solutions, such as the STM32 L5 ultra-low-power microcontroller family. As part of the STM32 microcontroller family, the STM32 L5 series is based on the Arm® Cortex®-M33 processor with TrustZone® for Armv8-M and is ideal for IoT applications requiring high security and low power consumption. ST’s BlueNRG-M2 application processor module provides a complete RF platform in a very small form factor, supporting BQE-certified IoT and smart home devices using Bluetooth 5.0 low energy connectivity. ST’s VL53L3CX time-of-flight ranging sensor embeds the company’s third-generation FlightSense patented technology, combining high-performance proximity and ranging sensors with multi-target distance measurement and automatic smudge correction for a variety of robotics and automation applications.
