The IoT Impacts Your Everyday Life

Designed as a resource for lecturers, and consists of teaching slides and a training kit

Keysight's U3800 Series IoT Applied Courseware are ready-to-teach packages that are designed to help educators teach IoT from fundamentals, systems design to advance topics including wireless communications, sensors and power management.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next mega trend that will change the way we live and work, and it touches almost every consumer and industrial application.

The core technologies that enable the IoT are wireless communication and sensor developments, and ongoing advances in these technologies result in unique challenges. These challenges include new communications standards, increased sensor integrations and power consumption management. This puts a heavy stress on an IoT device’s design and validation cycle, and designers must constantly innovate to quickly and successfully develop and deploy IoT devices in the market.

The U3801A/02A IoT Fundamentals applied courseware introduces students to the IoT’s architecture, technologies and ecosystems.

The U3803A/04A IoT Systems Design introduces IoT system design techniques, leveraging embedded systems focusing on specific IoT examples. Students will be able to design and develop an IoT system targeting IoT gateway and sensor network.
