EPS still lower year over year, it is likely a reflection of reduced charges, cost reductions, etc. The product diversity favoring Atom doesn't seem to favor a revenue burst at this time. For 2010, it has its 32 nm ramp, which is also costly (7 billion). We had some potential customers also reporting good earnings, but they are in the cost-reduction mode, which seems to have gotten them good earnings results.
Good analysis! I think Intel will do better than average given its current products, execution and notebook position.
But this is just one big player and slice of the semi market, and other sectors and players may face harder struggles.
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.
