Oddly enough, I see advantages for it in small form factor PCs. There are some applications that I would like to use mini ITX motherboards on, but they are limited by size to a single expansion slot. Multiplex access to a PCIe 3.0 slot with an appropriate expansion card (USB 3.0, SATA III, 1394b, etc.) and it might be interesting.
This also give a fast path for Light Peak, which can be used to offboard storage from the main box, among other things.
This accompanies well with the upcoming high-speed ethernet standards, but I wonder whether achieving faster data rates will have a bearing on low level chip interconnect standards and memory access? Or is this already happening?
You can either invest in a pci-express motherboard,but if you dont have either pci-e or a.g.p (only pci) then i reckon you have a motherboard that uses sd-ram and this will mean you will have to buy a motherboard,
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.
