I work for Altis :it is not correct to write :"About 250 workers at Altis Semiconductor SA,... have been blocking production since June 15". The shut down lasted about 8 days. Production has resumed since then. Trade unions claim that the strike is not over , but is 'suspended'.But the net is that the line has been running at full speed since then.
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.
