Interesting takes on the low end smartphone market by ARM and CEVA.
CEVA suggests using a single chip with with integrated baseband and an application processor, which implies we need a more powerful processor.
ARM on the otherhand suggests to use a stripped down version of its current CPU as the Application processor and leave baseband alone.
I think I am with CEVA on this one :)
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.
