@Max: Thank you for the information! The DSP blocks are not supported on Cyclone V SoCs I suppose? Are these new devices supported on the Quartus II design tool? Does the older versions of the tool support these new SoCs or it would be required to move to a newer version?
2. How much power does one of these consume running 1.5 TFLOPS, including the logic needed to get operands to the FPUs?
Also, I sure hope the developers remember to write their floating-point models using single precision, or they're going to get a nasty surprise when they discover that floating-point numbers are not real numbers.
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.
