In a recent editorial for the 2016 CES issue of i3 magazine, I wrote about the challenges addressing metropolitan and large urban areas, and how technology can provide some much-needed solutions to the biggest problems facing humankind today.
I also talked about the role of sensors in smart cities and provided a high level overview of the new class of processors needed to power these new devices. In the article below I will try to get more specific and explain why I believe our MIPS M-class CPUs provide a superior CPU solution for the requirements of the IoT market.
There are many factors influencing the choice of a particular processor for a semiconductor device. In the case of the IoT segment, those factors include the hardware characteristics (performance, power, and area), the software support, and the feature set – particularly around security.
