@lleiva: "the synthesis from C/C+ is effective in terms of time and area? "
The big advantage of HLS (sythesis from C/C ) is that it allows you to explore lots of different implementation options -- you can make something very area effcients (by resource sharing) but have lower performance, or use a lot of area (resources in FPGA terms) and have higher performance -- like all engineering it's a tradeoff
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.
