Baysand Claims that they can deliver Metal Programmable Gate Arrays at the same density, lower power and same cost as ASIC. In addition for logic changes their turn around time is 1-3 months and cost of initial design is way less than FPGA. I personally believe they would be better off as a FPGA replacement.
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.
