Microprocessors, Microcontroller Units and the Internet of Things

Speaker:  Leonel Sousa – INESC-ID, Rua Alves Redol, 9, Portugal
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


Internet of Things (IoT) refers to scenarios where different machines, such as objects, sensors and everyday items, are connected and require minimal human intervention – machine-to-machine interface (M2M).  In this talk, the state of the art architectures of the current microprocessors and microcontrollers will be analyzed, as well as the benchmarks for evaluating their performance and efficiency. In the last 20 years, these devices were designed by focusing on their performance, while power/energy consumption is critical for IoT. Furthermore, the support for interconnection and communication with users, things and cloud services is essential and will also be discussed in this lecture. Examples of commercial microprocessors and microcontrollers will be provided, and the main investigation paths for developing the future processing devices for the IoT will be underlined. This lecture is supported on a tutorial prepared by the lecturer for Circuits and Systems for the Internet of Things (CAS4IoT) and available in a book from River Publishers.
