Talk about Asynchronous Design for IoT at the ALIOT Workshop

An ErasmusPlus-funded project ALIOT “Internet of Things: Emerging Curriculum for Industry and Human Applications” held its workshop in Newcastle on 9-11th July 2018.

I gave an invited talk on “Asynchronous Design for IoT” where I also showed retrospectively some history of developments in the field of asynchronous system design where I have been involved for nearly 40 years, first in St Petersburg and then in Newcastle.

The slides of my talk can be found here:


My keynote at Norwegian Nanoelectronics Network Workshop – 13 June 2018

I attended a high stimulating networking workshop in Norway – called Nano-Network

It was held in an idyllic place on the island called Tjome – south of Oslo.

Lots of excellent talks. Here is the programme:

and I gave my invited talk on “Bridging Asynchronous Circuits and Analog-Mixed Signal Design”. Here are the slides:

The whole event was highly stimulating, with exciting social programme. Challenging adventure towards Verdens Ende (World’s End) with lots of tricky questions and tests on the way. Our team did well … but we weren’t the winners 🙁


IoT Technology Market 2017-2022 Prognosis

Quoting the recent Research and Markets store:

“Internet of Things Technology Market by Node Component (Processor, Sensor, Connectivity IC, Memory Device, and Logic Device), Network Infrastructure, Software Solution, Platform, Service, End-use Application and Geography – Global Forecast to 2022”

IoT technology market expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.1% during the forecast period”

“The IoT technology market is expected to be valued at USD 639.74 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 25.1% from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the IoT technology market can be attributed to the growing market of connected devices and increasing investments in the IoT industry. However, the lack of common communication protocols and communication standards across platforms, and high-power consumption by connected devices are hindering the growth of the IoT technology market.”
