FYI: Today, 21 SEP 2009, Arrow Electronics and Altera Corporation announced the BeMicro evaluation board for carrying out proof-of-concept tests of using soft-core processors in embedded, FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array)-based designs.
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.
