It is well expected. ARM historically has been neutral when it came to SNPS and CDNS. But in the last two years, esp after SNPS acquired VIRL, ARM's lunch in the Physical IP market has been eaten by SNPS.
So it is a new era now, they want to tie up closer to CDNS.
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.
