Can the world afford to power IoT?

One widely reported analysis claims that Bitcoin consumes more than 40 Terrawatt hours per year. That is more energy than we here in Ireland consume in a year. This makes sense – bitcoin operates by getting proof of work. To complete a transaction the miners in the network perform a series of operations. These consume power. But most of the work of the miners yields no useful results to those outside the network. Yet the

Designing Edge Devices for the IIoT

For the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the edge of the IoT – where the physical world meets the virtual world of data and the cloud – is perhaps the most important part. It’s here where data is collected and gathered, and also where the action happens. The insights gathered from the cloud are all implemented at the edge. But what do these edge devices look like, and how do we implement them? While edge

Do you need to simulate the full chip?

All chip designers know the importance of making sure our silicon is right first time. But we need to balance that with the reality of finite budgets for development and testing. So where do you draw the line? Ideally, you would test each block rigorously. Then combine them into subsystems that were again tested. Finally, you would prove by simulation at the chip level that the chip performs as expected. The lower down this chain
