The NVDIMM is powered by supercapacitors long enough for the DRAM contents to be copied to NAND flash. After the copy to NAND flash is completed, the NVDIMM no longer needs power and the original volatile DRAM contents are saved to the non-volatile NAND flash.
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.
