Another great talk Ransom. Any idea of how good SW routines running in scopes, BERTs and the likes are modelling the actual implemented equalizers? Can we rely on them to assess eye opening at the RX end with a reasonable degree of confidence or should we target embedded eye scan?
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.
