I like that in the conference in 2002, the speaker thinks Moore's law can only hold on for another decade before we are unable to doubt the transistors in a circuit. It is 10 years later, and we have not only been able to do it, we now predict we can go on for another decade. It always takes some ingenious innovation that helps us continue with the exponential growth of circuits.

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.
