@everiste32 and anyone else having ST-LINK driver install issues on Win 8.1:
Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the Getting Started document on page 4 and 5 to force the install.
If those steps did not resolve the issue and Windows cannot find a driver, then from Device Manager, right click the "STM32 STLink" device entry with the exclamation mark and manually point to the driver directory (where the batch file is located).
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.
