Max, thanks! It makes a lot more sense looking at the link you posted. There are a number of IOs that are pinned AND the edge connector was designed to interaface to their motor controller (Arrow Be In Motion). Whew not a bad offering esp for the price.
I am wondering what Altera's plan was behind using the edge connector? I am sure that they had something particular in mind, is there going to be another offering for development kits that uses this module as an add on? Chalk it up to just one more thing that makes me go "Hummm".
Thank you! I was wondering about the device as it was listed in the link as being in stock but I couldn't see it. I guess I won't be using it as the 80pin edge connector won't help me much. It would have been really interesting if it pinned out to either holes or pins (100mi/) for easy access / prototyping. Thank you again for the link!
When I follow the $49 BeMicro CV kit link there is no data sheet or information availible. I would like to see and understand what the kit consists of. The other links seem to work just fine and I like the $179 Cyclone V GX Starter kit. Looks to be an interesting offereing. Thanks for the pointers, hope the first link gets fixed.
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.
