Attempting to model power at the system level is going to be quite a daunting task -- but a necessary one. Power modeling at the gate level is now fairly mature, but we still can't say with any accuracy how much power the chip dissipates -- because the answer is always "it depends on the application." In other words, somewhere between the deep sleep mode dissipation and the everything-running-full-blast dissipation.
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.
