Data-Centric IoT Messaging

A Look at Key DDS Characteristics

by Bryon Moyer

The internet of things (IoT) is all about sensor data and communications. It involves some entity taking the data it receives, making some complex (or even simple) calculations, and then making decisions for the purposes of control or informing someone or something. Of course, there’s more than one way to do this.

The consumer IoT (CIoT) is all about sending the data – probably from your phone or wearable gadget, but, in the future, from various appliances in your home or elsewhere – up to the cloud, which acts as the brain of the system. It’s centralized and hierarchical.  Read More

It’s an age old question, what to select for your design? ASIC, FPGA, standard parts, ASSP etc. Each will have its merits for a particular design and market requirements, that's why these solutions still exist, there is no one panacea.

While Xilinx has abandoned the lowest end of programmable logic Altera has a low cost, low power, DSP capable device with analog data inputs (AMS). I work at Altera so I currently can't tell you all the great features of this device but it has all the stu…

Can you still do the "sea of gates" ASIC. The foundry would build an ASIC with lots of gates and leave the top metal layers off for later. The task was putting together the top layer (or 2) of metal interconnect.
It cost $80-100K in NRE 10 years ago. Mu…
