out of curoisity - what's the difference between a MCU and a CPU ? Devices like the STM32 (and other ARM based devices), with DMA and other features are kind of blurring the lines of traditional MCU/CPU (and even begining to enroach a bit on DSPs) aren't they?
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.
