Use of 3rd party IP has taken off over the last 10 years, but this is a solution to a hole in methodology and I am glad to see someone addressing it. Customers get stuck with predetermined latencies, throughput as well as functionality on the typical RTL-configurable IP.
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.
