Shared, Switched, or Networked? The Uncharted Future of On-Chip Buses Design How-To 9/24/2002 Post a comment Scrambling to keep up the the spiraling bandwidth requirements of
high-speed processing cores, SoC designers are looking at various on-chip bus options. Jack Shandle describes three bus flavorsshared, switched, and networkedand discusses how some major microprocessor core and silicon IP companies are addressing the problem of moving data on silicon.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
