With the explosive growth of the Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything, millions of devices are connecting every day. The arrival of Windows 10 IoT has brought ease of use and ubiquitous connectivity to IoT. This alone warrants becoming familiar with IoT goals, concepts, software and hardware in the context of the new Windows 10 IoT.
While Microsoft undoubtedly deserved kudos for its all-out effort to create a new OS that embraced the reality of touch and tablets while still taking the old legacy Windows along forRead More...

TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
Dr. Tim Saxe, QuickLogicThe ability to partition tasks among CPU, DSP and programmable logic elements on the same device enables developers to optimize energy, performance and development time.
by Jin Xu, Microchip TechnologyA new generation of 8-bit microcontrollers features on-chip peripherals that can set up to function independent of the CPU core and perform distinct functions without intervention from the core or the use of core instructions
by Rodger Hosking, Pentek, Inc.Since we are still in the early days of SoC offerings, embedded systems developers can expect significant advances in performance over the next few years as vendors continue to boost silicon resources and race to provide tools to most easily take advantage of them.
SMALL FORM FACTOR FORUM
by Tom Williams, Editor-in-ChiefGetting low-power, dense, high-performance memory to work effectively in such a limited form factor requires a huge engineering effort. The results, however, may be not only a new generation of phones, but also a new modular character for embedded devices in general.
