    The Importance of Ecosystems in the Internet of Things Era
    Published. March 11, 2014

    As we develop electronics in early 2014, the battle between processor architectures is raging in all spaces, from deeply embedded through mobile to servers. Choosing the right ecosystem partners is crucially important, and today's announcement of an extended partnership between ARM and Cadence marks important steps towards increasing productivity for ARM-based designs. About two years back, I had tried to make sense of what I perceived as chaos at the Embedded Systems Conference , pointing to...

    IoT Focus: IoT Applications Require a New Architectural Vision
    Published. September 10, 2014

    I wrote earlier that the sheer vastness and potential for IoT designs require a different way of thinking about system implementation. There just isn't a single controller architecture that meets all IoT requirements, such as multiple sensors, an innovative user experience, wireless protocol support, and various security requirements. And if a single controller architecture is not the answer, do we just lean on other traditional processor architectures and approaches? We can't because they aren't...

    A Batteryless Sensor Chip for the Internet of Things
    Published. July 30, 2014

    A prototype sensor saves power by using transistors that never fully turn “on.”The promise of the Internet of things is, in a sense, passivity. Our homes and offices will monitor us, and respond to our needs without instruction. But for tiny wireless sensors all over us and our things to really be feasible, we’ll have to replace today’s power-needy devices with more self-sufficient alternatives....

    Industrial equipment talking on the IoT? Better get a gateway (device).
    Published. July 15, 2014

    Merely routing data from local sensors onto the Internet is not the point of the IoT. Instead, aggregating that data and rolling it up via local algorithms (remotely loaded) into “actionable intelligence” allows the gateway’s operator to interpret machine or sensor trends and make big picture system-of-system decisions.
