Starting this year, ACM Special Interest Group in Design Automation (SIGDA) will sponsor an annual hardware design contest with dedicated themes to boost the research and development in the related areas. For this first year, the theme is set to be FPGA for Internet-of-Things (IoT). IoT is the internetworking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items-embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these “things” to collect, exchange and operate on data. How these “things” are designed is of critical importance to the efficacy and efficiency of IoT. In this contest, we will explore the use of low-power FPGAs to implement new concepts and designs in IoT edge computing.
