IoT Myth Busting
Jul 13, 2017
“Lucio Lanza, managing partner at Lanza techVentures, is in total agreement. ‘The design automation segment of the industry needs to be alert and in front of the pack. IoT design is unique because it is not driven by the next node, and we’ll need to understand the driving factors to be able to support the evolving needs of IoT. And now that we know the next segment of design challenges may not be just the increase in complexity of SoC, we need to become strategically alert. It may be the optimization of silicon-on-package or IP-on-substrate driven by power or the ability to make memories connect in a more effective way, or FPGAs become the foundation of inexpensive innovative ideas or…who knows what?’”
