On Sept. 30, 2016 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (CY) and Hackster announced a global design competition that gives engineers the opportunity to prototype their innovative ideas that sense the world around us for use in the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market, home appliances, and consumer and industrial applications. The Sensing the World Challenge will use Cypress’s easy-to-use CY8CKIT-048 PSoC® Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit as the development hardware platform. Hackster will select a winner from three regions—the Americas, Asia Pacific and Australia, and Europe and Africa—and each will receive an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and development kit.
“People generally associate the IoT with connectivity, but most next-gen applications start with the ability to sense real-world conditions,” said Adam Benzion, co-founder and CEO of Hackster. “This new design challenge unleashes the imaginations of the worldwide Hackster community. Thanks to the Cypress PSoC Analog Coprocessor, they can develop a huge range of innovative applications with its mix of sensor input combinations.”
“I can’t wait to see what the creative minds of the Hackster community will develop with the rich, flexible analog resources they have to work with in this design contest,” said John Weil, vice president of MCU marketing at Cypress. “The PSoC Analog Coprocessor allows engineers to simply create cost-effective systems with precise, highly sensitive analog sensors. And our intuitive PSoC Creator™ integrated design environment enables rapid prototyping and design iterations with hardware and software flexibility.”

According to IHS, “Due to market consolidation, the WLAN vendor landscape has bifurcated into end-to-end networking providers that can address the whole range of enterprise networking requirements and specialists that focus on a particular niche or new ways of solving old problems. The leaders—Brocade, Cisco, and HPE Aruba—are end-to-end networking providers that compete broadly in all segments of the market, leveraging the completeness of their portfolio and their installed bases.”
“Brocade is honored to be recognized as a leader in the IHS Markit WLAN Scorecard,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, chief operating officer, Ruckus Wireless business unit at Brocade. “We continue to offer our customers high-performing wireless technology, and the recognition by IHS further validates the considerable steps we’ve taken this year in the enterprise WLAN infrastructure market—a market that many forecast will continue to experience growth due to the rise in Internet traffic and next-gen connected devices. We look forward to further supporting our customers’ WLAN needs.”
