Security is a critical part of any professional IoT solution. Waiting until the end of the design cycle to starting thinking about how to implement your security solution will only lead to unplanned attack surfaces. The Creator Ci40 and Ci40 IoT-in-a-box kit is now part of the Infineon Security Partner Network (ISPN) (see more below), enables developers to investigate which IoT … Continued

In this post, we will explore how the heterogeneous design of the MIPS Warrior I-class I6500 CPU processor, delivers significant benefits in terms of performance and low power consumption. High-performance processors typically employ techniques such as deep, multi-issue pipelines, branch prediction and out-of-order processing to maximise performance, but this can have consequences for power efficiency. If some of these tasks … Continued
