rick we could test out our app on multiple MCUs, but in today's embedded development world, that would involve a lot of work porting the C program to reflect different memory maps, then recompiling. Not something folks are willing to do without the promise of a substantial payback. Not worth doing just to find a few percent improvement
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.
