@maxthemagnificent "So when we talk about "analog designers" here -- are we talking about people creating analog circuits like audio amplifiers (hence working at the board level with discrete parts) -- or people creating the PHY interfaces on ASICs/ASSPs/SoCs ... or the people creating MEMS components ... or."
I think you hit the nail on the head here, all analog engineers are not the same. But as @prateekvr asks below, what does an engineer need to know today to stay relevant?
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.
