Max has passed the torch to Martin Rowe and me for handling these weekly live chats. (No comment on it taking two of us to fill his shoes, though I will admit they are at least a 13E.) This week's chat will be a bit earlier than usual (9am Pacific time) because I will be returning from ARM TechCon and boarding a plane at 10.
Speaking of ARM TechCon, that is the subject of this week's chat. Lots of activity here in one of the top-tier trade shows in the industry. EETimes will have covered the news announcements, but no one can cover everything. Here's a chance to discuss the show as a whole, put the announcements into perspective, and share what you found on the show floor (or ask those who were there what they saw).
Come join us at 9am Pacific for a live chat wrapping up ARM TechCon!
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.
