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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
