@steve.taranovich "IoT has analog signal conditioning and RF and power management---there is a great deal of in-depth analog needed unless you use modules. Modules are fast and easy, but costly---your competitor will kill you with their discrete analof, RF and power designs"
So all these guys on Kickstarter who want to be the next Apple, are you saying that the winners will be the ones who have the best analog engineering design on their robotic bartending machine or Internet-enabled medical device?
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.
