When Intel took out an ARM licence it produced the StrongARM and PXA family of processors, but struggled to get the best out of them. They were sold to Marvell who have had the focus to build a stronger business with them.
I guess Intel has Marvell shareholdings so Intel wins if Marvell wins, so that's nice; Intel even got to keep its Architectural licence for the ARM - I wonder if that contains the normal non-competition clauses?
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.
