PCI and PCIe made a dramatic impact on the electronics industry as a whole, far, far beyond our humble goals in 1990 as we founded the PCI-SIG. Hats off to those who have worked over the many years to keep PCI current and relevant. Hey, all we where trying to do is get a replacement interconnect for the ISA, EISA, MicroChannel, VESA Local Bus.... to take the PC to commodity, centralize efforts, and improve performance.
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.
