From the systems software point of view, the dual core lockstep approach has clear advantages. Abort handlers can detect cpu faults, and reject/restart data processing operations, using normal software development methodologies. It would be nice having a discussion on the abort handlers for the RM48 to detect and recover from cpu faults, and use of the CRC hardware for data structure signoff and protection.
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.
