I have strong analog skills. What would be a great class would be a class to show example of how to take advantage of FPGA's in an all analog world. The mention of "Hampster" who created a transmitter to broadcast S-O-S is fascinnating to me. It leads directly into Direct Digital syntheses, which was starting to be a hot button at a former life.
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.
