hi mike,just the man i want to ask some questions :)
"Great visions are often counter-intuitive, scary or just plain annoying."
agreed, and you know who such as man with vision was "Benoit Mandelbrot" and his thoughts that our brains along side visual, audio and the other senses etc might also have a Fractal block for processing and sorting all that external data.
so in keeping with the premise "ask those in a position to make a difference" ill ask if you intend or would consider putting a (open] generic hardware assisted Fractal Block in a future Cortex Quad+ :)
the reason i ask for me is a very practical and long term benefit from the End user POV better than real time Fractal Video Denoising for 1080P and above video content see a demo here of how effective it could be on ARM Cortex written as a simple OSS FFmpeg filter patch
i also want the real fast wideIO ram bringing back as i didn't like Jedec pushing it back 2 years, but ill settle for the fractal engine (and a NEON tweak or two to speed it up) , as i cant get that IP in hardware on x86 OC.
anyway consider these things Evan if you don't comment on future products from your colective, and thanks for reading.
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.
