Sorry that should be 90nm not 40nm But it didn't make sense becasue the restriction seemingly only prevented SMIC from obtraining last-generation fab equipment. So for example the rest of the world was headed to 65nm but SMIC could only get 90nm.
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.
