@Duane: Migrating my old progs and apps to the new Windows 8 portable what a pain, especially having to get new node locked licenses. All because I can no longer safely run XP connected to the net.
Still I have my Microduino and oled deiplay working now. Got the wrong I2C address at first which caused me some pain till I put a logic analyser on the I2C lines and read the slave address I was sending. Good kickstarter kit from Microduino but you need to be knowledgable to use it as the detailed info is difficult to dig from the Wiki web site.
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.
