NO RATINGS
My first design tools were my hands, a pencil, and a drafting table, actually - this was back in 1986 or so.  Then I became a technician for a few years, and then went back to college to get a degree.

 

So, in 1994, I used my first FPGA.  We used ORCAD to draw our circuits, and then used another piece of software that would translate that netlist into a bitfile.

I've been heavy in analog circuitry, so I was actually using PSPICE at the same time.

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.
