As far as I know, FMT is not a commonly used abbreviation (unlike MCU, IP, MMU, DMIPS, MHz, DSP, SIMD, RAM or even SPRAM [had to think a bit before realizing from context it mean ScratchPad RAM]). Just expanding "FMTs" to "Fixed Memory Translation tables" would have helped. (From context I am guessing that TLM MMU is referring to an MMU for translating virtual physical addresses to actual physical addresses, but I could be wrong.)
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.
