This includes qualification of IP, verification, selection, legal and licensing, hard and soft issues, analog IP, integration and so much more…
August 2013 - October 2013 “The Internet of Things”
This includes a broad range of application areas ranging from datacenters and Internet backbone, through security, ultra-low power, power scavenging, ad-hoc and adaptive networking, chip level integration of sensors and other non-digital components. This could also have effects on the business side of the industry as the numbers of devices in use would skyrocket but costs will be very restrictive. Can be used for autonomous cars, wearable networks, medical data collection, the smart grid and so much more…
