@DrFPGA: Lattice seems to be on point with a complete solution- devices, IP, development kit and an application expert as a partner.
I agree -- I'm very impressed with the stuff Lattice uis coming up with -- they target specific areas of interest like HetNet and Sensor Fusion and then leap into the fray with gusto and abandon (and great solutions).
Lattice seems to be on point with a complete solution- devices, IP, development kit and an application expert as a partner. Too often FPGA guys roll out a solution that doesn't include real world application knowledge. It's difficult to create this capability in house since standards and algorithms evolve so quickly. Better to find the right partner and leverage their knowledge. Well done Lattice.
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.
