Finally someone besides me has picked up on the advantages of multiport rams. The fmax of the rams is more than twice the typical FPGA so two rams with some gating logic can be cycled in what would be a typical clock period. The rams hold data without use of dedicated registers and every possible Boolean function of the address bits is available(typical CPLD
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.
