This is an interesting idea...but the EDA vendors with their consulting divisions do this already...and would do this for fabless companies if AMD and others would make the IP commercially available. Is AMD making a business out of this or just doing this for this high profile design? that's my question.
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.
