That low-end Zynq would be great! How long will we have to wait?
Seriously Max, the Papilio has only 500 "Kgates". Enough room for a Microblaze I think (I use Altera, so I don't know precisely), but not for complex stuff of the kind that people who wants a Cortex-A9 plus HW accelerators like.
I was really getting interested in crowd-funding a Zynq board (just for the rest of us who cannot afford a ZedBoard!), similar to the Parallella case. Anyone likes the idea?
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.
