Recently I saw a low priced tablet "ARCHOS 80 G9" using a dual core OMAP4 processor from TI. I liked the HD video quality in that price. I was tempted but was not sure about the performance of OMAP4. Any experience to share?
OMAP4, to my knowledge, uses the ARM Cortex-M3 as a system management core and does not give external API level access to the core. Freescale is giving full API access to the Cortex-M4 and it will be used as a real-time core or a off-load processor as the customer specific use case warrants.
How is Vybrid an "industry first" when OMAP4 has two Cortex-A9 and two Cortex-M3 processors, which can (I rather suspect) "simultaneously run both a high-level OS (Linux/Android) and a realtime OS (RTOS/MQX)"? (OMAP4 would be overkill for the uses targeted by Vybrid, but the "industry first" claim seems less qualified.)
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.
