Admirable work on IoT by Sensinode

Even though it is a start up company, Sensinode has done wonderful work on IoT on the entire technology path starting from radio, protocol stack and API with graphical environment. They are already providing evaluation code/stack; I hope ARM will go further than that.

Sounds like ARM is pretty much solid in investing for the IoT space. I did not know the news of Linear Technology buying Dust Networks, this is a surprise to me. Good to see that Linear has been offering the wireless sensor solution for low power, energy harvesting kind of applications.

I did ask about the road map, but ARM is keeping mum.

@Rick, even neither party is detailing their plans, this is indeed a sign of the emerging 6LoWPAN standard. I would be really interested in learing how things will apread.

It should be interesting watching the IoT take off.  I guess ARM will be a big player.

Yes, ARM will be a major player in the PAN and IoT implementations, as the protocol stack will be demanding processing power in every next coming versions of implementations, and being modular architecture of the processors from ARM it will be the first priority for the developers who are seriously planning for a large productions of IoT enabled products.

IoT is the "next big thing" that has been growing for a few years, but is ready to breakout mainstream. For example I have an app on my phone that can turn on and off the security system at my home. So if I go to work and worry that I forgot to set the alarm I can simply look at the app on my phone to know the status and activate it if necessary. IoT is already here, but companies like ARM will certainly help make it a household term among the general public.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
