As embedded systems designs become more intelligent and connected, the communication links of these devices turn out to be increasingly important. At the same time, end user constraints around portability, longer battery life, and lower prices make it even more critical to find a cost-effective means for providing reliable communication.
Wired interfaces, such as USB and Ethernet, are common in many embedded designs and are being pushed to the limits of the standards in many applications. While the appeal of portable battery-operated devices drive the need for more power-efficient wireless connectivity. This application note describes three tangible applications utilizing specific measurement techniques that enable you to quickly and efficiently deliver cost-effective communication in your embedded designs.
