Milestone: Samsung 73-nm flash Teardown 10/17/2005 Post a comment The torch has been passed: Samsung's July launch of a flash memory at the 73-nanometer technology node marked the first time that DRAM had been beaten to production at the leading-edge lithography feature size. Today, available DRAM technology is sitting at 90 nm. Samsung's competition for ramping up the latest process technology seems to be internal, between its own flash and DRAM groups. Not surprisingly, then, the introduction of a 4-Gbyte NAND flash at 73 nm is a full year ahead of the Semic
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.
