Ricardo Anguiano of Mentor Graphics describes a memory wall game demo built with the Nucleus RTOS and thirty six NXP FRDM-K64F boards and touchscreens, plus a Boundary Devices BD-SL-i.MX6 game controller which also runs the Nucleus RTOS. Phong Chau of Cepheid discusses their new GeneXpert Omni, a point of care molecular diagnostic system built with Mentor Embedded Linux. Also covered in the video is a Mentor Graphics industrial automation robot demo which runs both the safety-critical functionality and the HMI control running on the same SoC using hardware enforced separation with implications for safety certification feasibility and safety certification cost control. The video ends with a brief computer security discussion, how security doesn't lend itself to soundbites, and how the industry still makes the same security mistakes we were making since the 60s and how security applies to the Internet of Things and to the Automotive market.

Spirent Communications offers end to end IoT Enablement solution which facilitates full product life cycle, from development to certification testing to global deployment, service assurance. Monitoring and analytics. In the Spirent IoT demonstration at ARM TechCon, Spirent presents two key elements of their offering. First, the IoT Device Framework, which is a software SDK for developers supporting multiple IoT protocols under the same set of common APIs, so developers don’t need to worry about details of the particular protocols. The IoT Device Framework can be used for building both sensors and gateways and offers extended capabilities for security, event aggregation, analytics and more; it also integrates seamlessly with ARM Mbed OS. Second part of the demonstration is showing so called eSIM capabilities. eSIM was recently approved by GSMA as a solution for global deployment of IoT products, allowing subscription and device management across multiple global service providers without the need to change the actual SIM every time the service provider is changed. To demonstrate Spirent IoT Device Framework capabilities, Spirent implements a globally connected parking lot, utilizing IoT device framework on the parking sensors and the gateway, with Gateway connected to the LTE network with eSIM and switched at run time between multiple service providers. The demo utilizes LwM2M, MQTT and Dweet protocols.
Hexiwear platform enables IoT edge node and wearable development. Completely open-source and developed by MikroElektronika in partnership with NXP. The Hexiwear hardware includes the low power, high performance Kinetis K6x Microcontroller based on ARM Cortex-M4 core, the Kinetis KW40Z multimode radio SoC, supporting BLE in Hexiwear. The Hardware features included 6 on-board sensors such as Optical Heart Rate Monitor, Accelerometer and Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Temperature, Humidity, light and Pressure sensors. Hexiwear also includes Color OLED Display, Rechargeable battery and External flash memory. Hexiwear is supported with its own application for Android and iOS, so users can connect the device to the cloud straight out of the box, without any additional software development required. Hexiwear uses FreeRTOS, the Kinetis software development kit (SDK) and the Kinetis Design Studio IDE. It's available for $49 at http://www.hexiwear.com/shop/
ARM launches their first ARM Cortex-M processors based on ARMv8-M architecture with ARM TrustZone technology,
IoT subsystem with ARM CoreLink system IP for fastest, lowest-risk path to silicon, Secure SoC designs fortified by TrustZone CryptoCell technology, Complete wireless solution with ARM Cordio radio IP for 802.15.4 and Bluetooth 5, Cloud-based service for secure management of IoT devices via ARM mbed Cloud, Optimized implementation on ARM Artisan IoT POP IP for the TSMC 40ULP process.
ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 are the first embedded processors based on the ARMv8-M architecture, bringing the proven secure foundation of ARM TrustZone to the most constrained IoT nodes. The majority of the top ten global MCU suppliers have already licensed one or both processors. Lead partners include Analog Devices, Microchip, Nuvoton, NXP, Renesas, Silicon Labs and STMicroelectronics.
The highly versatile Cortex-M33 features configuration options including a coprocessor interface, DSP and floating point computation, with increased performance and efficiency relative to Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4. The Cortex-M23 takes security to the most constrained devices, building on the standard set by Cortex-M0+ as an ultra-low power microprocessor in a tiny footprint
The new Cortex-M processors are backwards compatible with ARMv6-M and ARMv7-M architectures for direct and fast porting, accelerating product development. TrustZone CryptoCell-312 fortifies the SoC with a rich set of security features protecting the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of code and data.

ARM mbed announces the ARM mbed Cloud, a new standards- and cloud-based SaaS solution for secure IoT device management. It simplifies connecting, securing, provisioning and updating of devices across complex networks with optimizations built-in for energy-efficiency. Its an 'any device, any cloud' service for OEMs to scale IoT quickly. Bee Hayes-Thakore talks at ARM TechCon 2016 about mbed Cloud, mbed OS5.2, new developer tools, mbed Partnership, mbed Enabled and the new mbed Connect Shenzhen summit coming up on December 5th 2016.
Doug Anson, ARM IoT Solutions Architect talks about how ARM has worked with IBM to integrate ARM mbed with IBM Watson IoT platform on Bluemix Cloud Platform. The demo uses ARM Cordio Bluetooth sending a Google Physical Web URL to the Chrome Browser in the smartphone, creating an ability for the Chrome browser to interact with Bluetooth, enabling payment for parking meters by Bluetooth from the parking meter. Hooking up with the backend through IBM Watson, integrating with IBM's payment service and blockchain service.
