EETimes has really stooped to regurgitating marketing tweets. E.g there is nothing new in this article. All of this has been reported before in multiple presentations and talks. Other than an AMD and Cavium marketing update there isn't anything new.
Nick, how much investigating and understanding the ARM server landscape did you have to do to come up with this article. Or did you just get on the phone with AMD and Cavium and write up their story.
Sorry, but a lot of EETimes articles lately have catchy headlines but the articles have really no new information other than getting companies messages out there. Bait and switch!
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.
