Picking a portable IoT OS
Picking a portable IoT OS

Hardware/software architectures of the cloud and datacenter are well defined, so much so that “Wintel” and “Lintel” (Windows/Intel and Linux/Intel) became common jargon in networking circles in the middle part of the 2000s. This makes you wonder if an IoTopia can exist where common operating systems run as seamlessly on sensor modules as network servers. This level of portability sure would uncomplicate things

Robust IoT security costs less than you think
Robust IoT security costs less than you think

Most IoT devices are dangerously insecure because of a false assumption that reasonable security is prohibitively expensive and would add excessive time to the IoT product development schedule.

Trends and tradeoffs of implementing multi-standard wireless in IoT devices

While Internet of Things device manufacturers have a growing number of connectivity options when defining next-generation systems, misjudgment of the fast-changing network landscape can leave those products off the grid, literally. In this interview with Aviv Malinovitch, Vice President and General Manager of the Connectivity Business Unit at CEVA, Inc., he overviews trends his company is seeing in combo wireless across multiple market segments, then outlines the pluses and minuses of using software-defined radio (SDR) or multiple hardware connectivity IPs for embedded device design.
