DMA to GPIO is possible. The GPIO register would be classified as a 'memory' location rather than a 'peripheral' resource. Then the contents can be connected to either another memory or peripheral location. There is a 'bit-banding' feature set available as well which may fit better in certain applications.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
