I don't know that anyone does it this way, but you could envision a manufacturing system where they test the scopes on the line and, in essence, bin them for BW. So the best performing units get the high BW model numbers and so on. So, I don't think its completely unrealistic to think that their could be some issues with hacking in a BW upgrade.
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.
