I wonder why ARM is not in any HD STB SOC? Is this because ARM too greedy? ARM better think it before Intel banishes it form this market. Browse web does not need 1GHz CPU except video. With ASIC/VLIW based multimedia proccessing in SOC, it will beat PC/3D graphics combo any time of any day. With STB SOC like this plus software. It would be wrong solution to think clock rate is the only solution
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.
