Alas, the Brian Halla announcement was made the day after this report was published, so he wasn't included. Obviously, he would have been otherwise. [Just a thought: could this article have influenced his decision to retire? I doubt it, too, but you never know...]
Redundency should start with management team as they are the decision maker. A manager's salary equal to 10 or more employees', who should take the equavalent responsible for his paid, right?! It is unfair to let them go with wind, but leaving endless pain to his employees!
EE Times focus on top-bottom analysis but ignoring the lives of semiconductor employees! Although the majority of your readers are employees!
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.
