"We have succeeded in making the quantum-well transistor's gate length shortâ??about 40 nanometersâ??but the contacts are still large," said Mike Mayberry, vice president of the Technology and Manufacturing Group and director of components research at Intel Labs. "Our challenge will be to engineer smaller contacts that minimize the barrier between the metallic contact and the quantum well."
Oh, is that all? good luck with that lol
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.
