thank you for commenting and for the hint. My understanding is that GPU-based verification engines belong to the acceleration class of machines, with speedup factors of less than one order of magnitude (less than 10X) versus HDL simulators. Hardware emulators run several orders of magnitude faster than HDL simulators.
If you wish we can have a discussion one-on-one. My email is "firstname.lastname@example.org"
there is a lot of research going on about design emulation on off-the-shelf multi-GPU systems, such as the one from NVIDIA. I think with a proper handling of timing critical interfaces with virtual peripherals on multiprocessor systems, that there is a lot of potential in it. Still exiting times ahead.
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.
