Processors for the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) enables a “smart world” in which many billions of devices communicate to provide advanced functionalities. Specifically, a broad variety of IoT edge devices is emerging that can “sense”, “listen” and “see”, to capture data for further processing and communication. Such devices have a broad range of compute requirements as they implement a mixture of control processing, digital signal processing (DSP), Machine Learning, security, etc. In this presentation we analyze the compute requirements of IoT edge devices and discuss processor capabilities that support the efficient implementation of such devices.
Pieter van der Wolf is a Principal Product Architect at Synopsys. He received his MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology. He was an Associate Professor at Delft University of Technology before joining Philips Research in 1996. In 2006 he joined NXP Semiconductors when it was spun out of Philips Electronics. In 2009 he joined VirageLogic, which was subsequently acquired by Synopsys. He has worked on a broad range of topics including (multi-)processor architectures and system design methodologies, with a focus on DSP applications.
