I still think that for mobile devices multiplexing DisplayPort, or some video signal, in parallel with PCIe (as Thunderbolt does) makes more sense than PCIe only. With only PCIe, a GPU will be required at the monitor end.
PCI and the PCI SIG have again done outstanding work. PCI continues to innovate, Congrats... long ago (1990). I fondly remember debating 5V or 3.3V as the first spec. (PCI 1.0), We have come a long way and revolutionized a industry.
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.
