Convergence products require mix of technologies Blog 2/24/2003 Post a comment The need for manufacturing solutions that optimally balance cost, performance, and low power, while meeting stringent and rapidly narrowing time-to-market windows, puts an even greater emphasis on the time required to develop these complex SoC solutions. Therefore, some products are more likely and better suited to be implemented in multiple chips rather than having everything on a single chip.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
