I like the approach to saving power and thus extending battery life. Given the CVFsq nature of power would it make for a more efficient GPU if it was made more parallel and ran at a much slower clock frequency? Given the frequency is squared in the power calculation I would expect significant power savings through increasing the silicon used to provide the graphics processing. Just a thought (has this been done already?).
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.
