"ARM has already won the processor wars" was the verdict I kept hearing all this week at FTF 2012, and design wins at AMD, Apple, Dell, Freescale, HP, LSI, Samsung and others back up the boast. But of course, Intel was not fairly represented here among vendors who have already chosen ARM, and design wins for Intel's low-power Atom--in other than mobile application--are just beginning to be reported:
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.
