The advantage for these non-consumer product based companies in going with ARM is that they can leverage the terrific ARM ecosystem to reduce the total cost of hardware+software and still deliver cutting edge system with the latest standards with the added benefit of high class power optimization inherent in ARM.
It is quite true that over ARM the industrial pcs will be more reasonable as it will provide more interfacing standards on the chip itself, so it is a very right step towards selecting the ARM for industrial PCs.
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.
