@prateekvar: So for someone who is planning to specialize in Analog Design, what skills are a must then?
You have to really understand the characteristics of the various circuit elements (resistors, capacitors, inductors -- and diodes, transistors, etc.). You also have to understand that in the analog world you also have to deal with these things as parasitic elements associated with interconnect and package pins and voas on circuit boards and stuff. You also have to be able to use tools like analog simulators (an art in itself)
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.
