IOT is a network of connected things through internet using IOT platform. Many of IOT systems have been build using microcontroller, IOT can be rebuild using more precise concept for embedded systems using FPGA. The working principles of FPGA are systolic array and pipelining that speed up data processing through parallelism. Using FPGA as IoT platform performed through connecting FPGA to the internet which achieved by companies that are manufacturing FPGA, and that covered by many researches and studies. This research will cover the main principles of how to build IoT platform using FPGA.
