Thanks for the NI Week update. I'd be curious to know who gets nominated for NI's awards (such as Graphical Systems Design Achievement awards.) The projects are interesting and from universities around the world.
Lucky you, Janine. I've been to some of NI's presentations in Sydney (Australia) and as a result of being enrolled for a diploma course I got a student copy of Labview. Have not played with it as much as I would like, but it's an awesome system.
I have written a comprehensive guide to using the Zedboard over on programmable planet as well. To date it covers creating the actual PS/PL system using planahead, XPS, and SDK. Creating the boot loader, implementing the mixed signal ADC and of course implementing your own peripheral in the PL side of the device to speed up the PS side.
Yes indeed Janine you're lucky to be there. I think the demonstrations at the opening keynote are one of the highlights of the entire week - I'd love to get a video clip of Eric wielding his sledgehammer!
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.
