@Antedeluvian: By some strange quirk of fate -- the folks at Cypress just sent me two of those $4 PSoC 4 Prototyping kits along with a PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit as mentioned in your article ... I hadn't realized that the Pioneer Kit had the same board footprint & headers as am Arduino Mega -- I think the little scamps are tempting me to plug in some of my Arduino Shields -- now I'm quivering in anticipation at the thought of experimenting with these (as soon as I get a spare moment -- Ha!)
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
