MEMS on the Move News & Analysis 7/7/2005 Post a comment Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) has a reputation of being one of those technologies that is always on the verge of taking off but somehow sputters. The truth is somewhat more complicated: Success varies widely depending on market segment. In this feature article, Jack Shandles gives us an update on MEMS.
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.
