Since VNA can be cost prohibitive, many people resort to simulation tools. What are your recommendation (not from what tool or vendor to buy) but acceptable tolerances compared to bench measurements (ie. correlation to bench), features, etc? That is, what are the things to look for if one wants to buy EDA SW simulation tools for frequency-domain work? (I understand you mentioned MATLAB with RF Tool box).
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.
