Biting into exabytes Memory Designline Blog 2/7/2011 4 comments I am pretty geeky and live with a geeky family. We throw around the term Terabyte with some frequency here (really, we do). But exabyte? No. Never said that one before.
Nervously watching Korea Memory Designline Blog 11/28/2010 13 comments I was reading a post on TechEye.net today, and the writer had some thought-provoking points in response to the recent escalation of hostilities between North and South Korea, and what impact the situation might have on DRAM and LCD markets
Seagate gaining bidders? Memory Designline Blog 11/28/2010 7 comments Do you think it is more logical for Seagate, one of the world's largest maker of hard drives, to be consolidated with one of the other big memory players (and its current rivals), or would you rather see Seagate remain an independent company?
HDD: not dead yet? Memory Designline Blog 11/4/2010 2 comments In the wake of all of the solid state drive SSD activity lately, I wasn't surprised to see another alternative make a bid for some attention.
Apple changing the game with memory Memory Designline Blog 10/21/2010 25 comments As a newly-minted Mac fan, I was happy to see the news this week that its new MacBook Air would be dropping the traditional hard drive for some nice solid-state flash memory ranging from 64 to 256GB.
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.
