This workshop focuses on the intersection between IoT and the VLSI systems required to build IoT systems. Internet-of-Things technology is being applied to a huge range of application areas. IoT systems make use of wireless networking to build physically distributed soft real-time systems. To fully deliver on the promise of IoT, we need to develop a new generation of VLSI devices for IoT nodes and hubs. IoT pushes VLSI system design in an entirely new direction - rather than concentrate on building the biggest, most complex chips, we need to develop a new generation of small, extremely inexpensive chips. This new generation of IoT devices will require advances in packaging, circuit design, low-power design, security, and system architectures.
The workshop features both invited speakers and submitted contributions from workshop participants. Interested participants can submit a 1-page summary of their proposed contribution by Friday, February 17, 2017 at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vlsiiot17. Results will be announced by March 1, 2017.
|08:30||W01.1||Devices and Systems|
Two talks on VLSI devices and systems.
|08:30||W01.1.1||Small Is Beautiful: The New VLSI Landscape|
IoT requires small, capable devices. VLSI system design has traditionally pushed toward ever-bigger chips. IoT will require us to rethink our assumptions and develop new methods to design chips that are small, consume extremely low power levels, and provide the capabilities appropriate for the systems in which they opeate.
|09:30||W01.1.2||Towards a Fog Computing Paradigm for Industrial Internet of Things|
Industrial IoT as a distributed fog architecture:
- Requirements of applications in Manufacturing, Industrial automation, Robotics
- Challenges in computation and communication
- Fog Computing
- Solutions: Virtualization (computation) and Time-Sensitive Networking, ultra-reliable 5G (communication)
(-Resource management, provisioning)
