re: CoFluent helps Intel with virtual platform creation

Yes - it is interesting. This is that murky area where EDA, embedded systems and software development are on a collision course. When a virtual platform is created that enables someone to develop code for a processor yet to be released, or to maximize performance on an existing platform, or to be able to perform development on an emulation of another machine, tools are needed for the creation of that model. I doubt if Intel would see selling the tool as a commercial venture, in the long term, but the EDA companies are building and selling exactly the same capability.

Not a problem. I thought Intel not commenting was a good reason to run the story :-) As you say, Intel has now provided a bit more insight. But I am not sure this means Intel is getting into the EDA tools business. More that CoFluent is getting out and becoming an in-house support.

Yes I did. At that time CoFluent had said that Intel was making no statements about the acquisition or their intentions for it. The statement on the website, which was not there a week ago, gives more insight into Intel's intentions. I do apologize for not putting a link into your original article. I am still getting the hang of this.

Hi Brian, Nice work picking up on the Intel customer notification about the CoFluent acquisition. But didn't you spot that we ran the CoFluent story a week ago? http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4226946/Report-Intel-acquires-CoFluent

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.
