Now that we have processors on FPGAs a more robust debug environment is a good idea. I would expect the FPGA guys to start putting in hardened functions for doing this. Hopefully they can be somewhat standard (maybe starting with the ARM debug set) and not end up all different implementations.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
