The Internet of Things (IoT) is a buzz word hard to avoid in today’s technical society. Known as the biggest thing since the .com boom, the IoT increases connect-ability between the physical and digital worlds. IoT has often been referred to as the “infrastructure of the information society” and has led to intelligent connected platforms (IP) for innovative devices such as wearable, home automation, and medical monitoring products. Devices connected to the IoT can be sensed and controlled remotely across IPs improving efficiency, accuracy, and economic gain. As a result of the IoT an increased demand for connected devices drives new approaches to PCB design.

Ideally what engineers want is a blend of virtual and physical prototyping—something possible in PSpice. Since many IoT innovators use inexpensive development boards to develop their idea, I thought it would be instructive to show how one can develop new hardware in OrCAD® and PSpice, then integrate the simulation with real sensors driven by an Arduino board.

Have you ever wanted to simulate a design with existing hardware? Sure you can create a stimulus of what you expect from the hardware then simulate in PSpice, but sometimes there’s no substitute to the real thing. Ideally what engineers want is a blend of virtual and physical prototyping—something possible in PSpice. Since many IoT innovators use inexpensive development boards to develop their idea, I thought it would be instructive to show how one can develop new hardware in OrCAD and PSpice, then integrate the simulation with real sensors driven by an Arduino board.

It is hard to attend any sort of meeting to do with semiconductors without hearing about the Internet of Things (IoT), and probably the hottest subtopic is IoT security. Some devices will contain our health data, some are dangerous. Even the apocryphal internet-enabled toaster could potentially burn down your house. The second day of this year's EDPS in Monterey was completely dedicated to semiconductor security.

Roost is a startup using OrCAD to develop an internet enabled battery that can fit in existing smoke alarms to alert you via your phone or internet connected device about the battery getting low well before you get to the chirping phase (and at a reasonable time of day as well).
