Why MEMS Need to Be More Like ASICs News & Analysis 8/12/2002 Post a comment Microelectromechanical-system (MEMS) technology has reached a level
where MEMS devices should be making a big impact in key application
areas, such as communications and biotechnology. TechOnLine's Content
Director, Jim Lipman, provides his take on why MEMS pervasiveness is
currently much smaller than expected by many analysts and a way MEMS
usage can be increased.
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.
