oh i hate my space bar lets try that URL again and add 2 more for generic WRT info
the main site.
their wiki links to their DIY hacking of popular routers and NAS etc.
for an WRT overview with the mention of people actually running personal web servers on their DD-WRT enabled kit, Nice, so that additional ram comes in handy right off the bat :)
if they really want traction in the mass home and entry-level business systems then id mandate an empty generic SO-DIMM slot on all PCB's they produce so as to allow these home and entry-level business systems customers to populate them and provide more system ram than the included base systems.
by "Mindspeed aims to package a full software stack based on open source code for each target application. It currently does not have a complete code base for small business routers."
i assume you mean the ever popular DD-WRT (3rd party router firmware)http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index the reason being if its not that then its no good from the HOME/SOHO POV LOL. and they will expect and make use of any additional and easy RAM you can easily fit so making these new ARM SOC PCB/devices ever more popular and advocated in that MASS market place
i just hope Mindspeed are willing to work with the wrt and related devs to provide patches upstream etc as a very important service.
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.
