Will the 3x growth rate from 2015 to 2020 in connected things ? up to 21 billion connections, per that well-quoted Gartner report ? mean that the Internet will also become three times smarter?

Over the past several years, the IoT has been touted as the Next Big Thing as well as the Internet of Crappy Things. Both descriptions are justifiable. Poorly protected IoT devices have been used in numerous Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and supposedly helpful and friendly devices have invaded the privacy and exposed the personal information of their users.

Datasheets are available in their latest revision on the web, but unfortunately not in their previous revision. Not having stored the initial revision at the start of design gives misleading results regarding calculated energy consumption. Supplier?s marketing statements in datasheets are sometimes hard to verify. But if we want to choose the best microcontroller based on energy efficiency, we still have several options.

Environments running Big Data and Fast Data applications have exceeded the processing capabilities of general-purpose compute architectures. Having a common open computer architecture centered on data stored in persistent memory, while allowing all devices to play a compute role, is a key enabler of new scalable architectures that are driven by a new class of machine learning compute workloads.

Today, the power of open source, the freedom it enables, and the communities that it generates are gaining traction in the hardware world, too. For these reasons, RISC-V is gaining huge popularity. Here is an introduction to RISC-V and the opportunities it opens.

RISC-V models, together with other Open Virtual Platform (OVP) models, APIs, and the OVPsim virtual platform simulator, enable the building and customization of instruction accurate models and platforms for custom SoC subsystems, full SoCs, or larger systems for software development.

COLIN WALLS, MENTOR GRAPHICS
 
Power consumption of embedded systems continues to be a hot topic (no pun intended). And there?s one aspect of designing for low power that should be placed under the spotlight ? the Power Pyramid.

Most companies say it takes up to 10 partners to even start an IoT project. How did a market built on connected technology get so fragmented? It comes down to the specialized expertise needed in three areas: sensing platforms, new business models, and an evolving maintenance landscape.
