"Two on-board Ethernet PHYs are provided that support all the top industrial networking protocols, including EtherCAT, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP." Has anybody tried to run any Industrial Ethernet protocol such as EtherCAT or PROFINET on the Cyclone V SoC development kit using the two on-board 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports? How does it perform?
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.
