Thanks for your kind words and readership of Xcell. We stopped printing the issue over a year ago, but the content is available in Digital Magazine format (iPad/iPhone compatible) as well as one-click pdf. Our landing page is http://www.xilinx.com/publications/xcellonline/index.htm
We've had a lot of Zynq content in the last few issues, so if you missed the last few, click on the "Past Issues" tab, which contains every issue of Xcell back to it's first issue in 1988.
Thank you for sharing. I am pretty much interested in learning about the Zync SoC. Earlier I was registered to receive the Xcell journal...but in the last couple of years it has stopped. Is this not free anymore?
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.
