One big point about these boards is that a lot of Uno shields are I2C based -- but these won't easily run on Leonardos or Dues or Megas because their I2C pins are in different places -- our proto-boards solve thsi issue -- in my latest blog I showed my I2C-based Uno LCD shield working with my Mega
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.
