Configurable in the sense that: it can have one, two, four or many cores; it can have small single-level caches...or larger caches including L2; it can have multiple high-speed parallel buses or not....
I don't mean configurable in terms of instruction set additions or omissions.
So I doubt Tensilica, or Synopsys (ARC) licensing is required...unless you know better?
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.
