Structured-ASIC debate building in fervor News & Analysis 8/25/2003 Post a comment A custom-chip design approach that was initially dismissed by critics as a fad is proving to have staying power as system architects increasingly seek a middle ground between cell-based designs and FPGAs. Crista Souza has these insights.
Flat June chip sales up 10% y-on-y, says SIA News & Analysis 8/4/2003 Post a comment Worldwide sales of semiconductors totalled $12.54 billion in June, 2003 up less than 1 percent from $12.50 billion in May 2003 and up 10.4 percent from $11.35 billion in June 2002, according to Global Sales Report (GSR) figures released by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) on Monday (August 4, 2003).
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.
