SoC Embedded Software Needs a Low-Power Perspective Design How-To 10/1/2002 Post a comment System integration and device portability have made designing for minimum power as important as clock speed and bandwidth for many chips. TechOnLine's Jim Lipman explains why he feels that low-power design, integrated into the methodologies and tools of chip hardware designers, is not in the mind-set of most designers of embedded-software for SoCs.
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.
