Susan, yes it offloads the main chip, especially for things like calibration and compensation. Just saw a press release on a llibrary of functions for turning a magnetometer reading into a reliable compass. More complex than you might at first think.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
