@Cristian: "Is EDA community waiting/seeking for a new better HDL?"
Hard to say -- there are some issues with VHDL and Verilog that are confusing -- like "assignments" -- you have to remember that these languages are 20 years old now. Languages like MyHDL are based on newer concepts that make them easier to understand and use -- but there's a lot of "inertia" when it comes to moving to something new
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.
