I was not aware that Altera was also offering DC-DC converter products. I missed the news of the aquisition of Enpirion by Altera.
I guess it was a good strategy for Altera to aquired and to have technical control over the DC-DC power converter products in order to offer optimized FPGA design solutions for higher efficiency, better power integrity. Thanks for providing the link of the reference designs.
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.
