Really @goafrit, this is what you understand by IoT? a smart TV? We are talking about extremely low power devices that are not plugged into the mains, devices that are capable of scavanging power from solar power, vibration etc.
>> very low-power microcontroller core for the Internet of Things (IoT) and other embedded applications.
Do we not have these things already? Alibaba has a TV that helps you shop, watch TV, play games, surf web. They call it Rainbow. This exists already. I am surprised what the deal is here. The IoT is nothing but embedded systems with internal protocol and we have been in that game for long.
This is very interesting in that it suggests the first signs of a new wave that would be likely to sweep across the entire chip industry. As I recall, analysts are predicting billions of sensors as the iOT takes shape. ARM is clearly staking its claim here. It's fascinating to see this thinking on how the processors will be powered.
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.
