Possible erratum with the statement that "50% more power is provided for unconfigured or suspended devices (150mA up from 100mA)."
The USB 3.0 spec says that "Suspended devices, whether configured or not, shall limit their bus power consumption as to the suspend mode power requirements in the USB 2.0 specification".
Table 7.7 of the USB 2.0 specification states that low-power devices are limited to 0.5mA and high-power devices are limited to 2.5mA during suspend.
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.
