SoCs no panacea for comms infrastructure News & Analysis 10/18/2002 Post a comment Like "military intelligence," the "comms infrastructure system-on-chip" is almost, but not quite, an oxymoron.

FPGAs boost protocol flexibility News & Analysis 10/14/2002 Post a comment Network systems houses provide excellent security at the virtual private network and firewall levels, but not at the router, switch, server and storage-area network levels.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
