@DrFPGA: You can put the cube in the foreground and have the video playing on your computer in the background while walking on your treadmill and video the whole thing. Instant Viral Opportunity (IVO)...
I just have to wait for my make-up artist to get here...
Something that really amazed me was the evolution of the entry level FPGA world while I was at APP; both in terms of accessibility and in terms of my perception. FPGAa were always a huge, expensive mystery to me, but now they're pretty much only a very large mystery to me.
Over the last 18 months the visibility and affordability of FPGA boards has changed radically too. Innexpensive and (relatively) easy to use FPGA boards are popping up all over the place these days. I suspect that if we keep the same course, in another 18 months, FPGA development boards will be nearly as innexpensive and popular as are powerful MCU boards these days. Think Beaglebone and Raspberry Pi, but with an FPGA at their heart.
Hi Max and all at EE Times Programmable Logic Designline.
Well Crusty has managed to struggle across into the new domain at EE Times and is happy to see that quite a few of the APP live wires are already here.
I am just not sure that a wider world is ready for my approach to electronics and programming, but Max seems composed about this?
I think Crusty must be a Time Lord amongst other things, as Crusty (APP) has been reincarnated (infernally) as Crusty1 at EE Times. Crusty1 also has a new face or to be exact a new photo with the reconstructed eyelids.
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.
