Sampling only in march......it seems an end of the year thing to me, being a server cpu. We'll see the success of these little SOCs. Anyway i don't see news in the more lucrative segment of the server market, "Serious" AMD server roadmap says "no news" in 2014 and 2015. ARM is easy, you buy the IP and with a legolike action you can assemble a cpu. Unfortunately you can not differentiate much yourself from the competitors and the hardware is cheap.....margins too. Amd is trying to do its best in a non comfortable situation of marginality.
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.
