Synplicity's entry in ASIC synthesis focuses on design gap problem News & Analysis 6/5/2001 Post a comment SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Synplicity Inc. here figures it is doing something rather unusual with its entry into the ASIC synthesis market. Instead of focusing strictly on leading-edge designs, the company is emphasizing productivity and mainstream ASICs, which are produced with 0.35- to 0.18-micron processes.
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.
