Synthesis tool enables mixed-signal core design News & Analysis 11/15/1999 Post a comment Antrim Design Systems Inc. promises to bring mixed-signal block design into the digital ASIC design flow this week when it announces Antrim-MSS, billed as the first commercial tool set for synthesizing mixed-signal ICs. Antrim says the tool set will enable the rapid creation of mixed-signal intellectual property (IP).
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.
