You've heard the term Internet of Things (IoT) thrown around certain tech articles. Today, many tech companies are working to introduce products which will a) make your life easier and b) fit in within an interconnected home.
What does IoT really mean? First, it means connectivity. IoT devices are connected to one another. The main benefit is that the products can be controlled from afar. Use a remote video feed to take a look at what's happening within your house. Is your pet looking a little chilly? Now you can adjust the thermostat from within your office.
Here are some examples of how IoT devices can be used within your home.
All of these products - smart switches, lighting controls, and appliance controls - are powered using low-end FPGA. The logic gates within the chip can be pre-programmed to switch on/off as long as certain conditions are met.
