I was looking for the cost of these processors or at least the predicted cost but could not find any reference to the price point that the budget supercomputers had? Given the title of the article I was expecting some market costing numbers or a comparison to existing system/chip costs. I am happy to see the new line announcement and look forward to it rolling out but am still wondering if these will be budget supercomputers or just the next generation supercomputer cores.
Hi Colin - just wanted to point out a needed minor correction to your above article. In particular, in the first line of the fourth paragraph the following one letter change should be made:
The Xeon Phi is not (should be noW -- "w" rather than "t")available in three new models, the 7100 high-end model with 16-Gbytes of memory and 320 Gbits per second bandwidth .........
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.
