I like small form factor (SFF) devices like Intel’s NUC (next unit of computing) platform, but it is not the only SFF platform around. While the smaller devices are handy as a PC, they can also do double duty as a digital signage platform, a media center PC, or even a small file server. Using one of these systems versus support built into a smart TV includes the use of a more powerful processor, more storage, and more connectivity options.
SATA and SAS have been challenged by flash storage devices because of the high throughput possible with these devices, but rotating magnetic media still retains its edge when it comes to capacity. This is why a lot of these drives and controllers continue to be sold even as NVMe becomes the norm for many enterprise (and even desktop) installations. Hard drives still account for more than 80% of the drives being shipped.
Being a microcontroller these days can be rather tough. It’s hard to mix low power and high performance together, which generally means that large memories are needed for the latest applications. With its STM32L4+ family of ultra-low-power (ULP) microcontrollers (Fig. 1), STMicroelectonics (ST) looks to make good on meeting both of those goals. 1. The STM32L4+ family packs up to 2 MB of flash with ECC support into two banks, along with 640 kB of SRAM.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
