re: DoD may push back on Apple's P.A. Semi bid

I find it surprising that Apple would want to buy a bunch of chip developers and then not make any chips. It doesn't really add up.

Interesting twist on an interesting story. Rick, I think the really eye opening part of your article came at the end: "P.A. Semi customers were told the acquiring company was not interested in the startup's products or road map, but is buying the company for its intellectual property and engineering talent." Ladies and gentlemen, Apple is now officially a fabless multicore processor manufacturer. Somehow, I wonder what the execs at Google think of all the commotions in the processor business. Could they be considering jumping into the fray as well? If so, I suggest that they take a good look at Plurality Ltd. Maybe Microsoft should get into the semi business as well. At any rate, the excitement is becoming unbearable. Thanks for an informative article.

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.
