Kabini has been available for purchase for a couple weeks now I believe. Temash laptops from Acer as well. I currently have an article submitted for publication on Seeking Alpha that explains my thoughts, but I would just like to add that this is not the first Kabini.
Many times in its past AMD has been hammered for designing innovative architectures but failing to get them to market in a timely way. With its APU designs it is once again driving standards for multicore processors--and now apprarently getting at least this one to market promptly, too.
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.
