Is there a platform or a tool available that will allow me to contract with engineers around the globe on pieces of a design I want done for which I don't have in-house capability? This applies to both system and IC design. Thanks for any help on this.
Hey Neutrino, most of the platforms tend to be IC-design oriented (ICManage comes to mind and were also featured in this issue of EETimes). Also, Siemens has one for more system oriented design. That you're looking for? If so, I can point you to the contact there.
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.
