“Software Reconfigurable Hardware” in IoT Student Training
Fast development of IoT technologies require new engineering skills pushing universities towards developing and/or improving their systems and tools used in assisting courses and laboratories goals.
Many companies (Digilent, National Instruments, Cypress, etc.) have started developing new devices related to these requirements, devices necessary to be adopted by universities in their new concepts regarding engineering education.
In this context, one important idea in the development of new systems will be connected with the modern class and ideas of the Software Reconfigurable Hardware. In our development, after a careful analyse of the literature, we selected the use of the new ultra‑low‑power PSoC 6 MCU from Cypress Semiconductors as their architecture offers the processing performance needed by IoT devices, eliminating the tradeoffs between power and performance.
