TSMC's Chang looks at risk factors News & Analysis 3/28/2000 Post a comment In the business calculus that determines where investments flow, TSMC chairman Morris Chang faces a particularly complicated set of factors, made more so by saber rattling in mainland China and an earthquake six months ago. In a meeting with reporters here prior to the opening of TSMC's Fab 6 in Tainan, the question "Where to build?" dominated the conversation with the TSMC founder.
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.
