ISSCC spotlights circuit, process milestones News & Analysis 2/7/2000 Post a comment The 47th International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco this week continues its long-standing tradition of featuring breakthrough IC designs that point the way toward new markets and applications.
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.
