On the trail of counterfeit chips Teardown 5/22/2006 Post a comment
Seven to 10 percent of all the high-tech products sold worldwide are counterfeits, it's estimated. In 2004, U.S. Customs seized $200 million in counterfeit goods, $134 million of which originated in China. Trade in counterfeit goods cost U.S. businesses an estimated $2 billion per year in copyright losses alone.
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.
