Thanks Jacob, for a very interesting intro to this dev kit! I had a lot of fun doing the exercises and everything worked the way it was supposed to! I look forward to using what I learned here to do more experimenting with this board. Who knows, maybe someday I will actually develop a product using this or a similar part. Thanks again to everyone involved, including EE Times University and Digi-Key for supplying the dev kit for free!!!
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.
