This is always one side story when capacity is not enough to go around on the good day, why no one question nVidia putting all their eggs in one basket, and not do the risk management in multiple foundries? or making investment on the manufacturing side so they would have something to say? Certainly don't hearing fabless to share the foundry risk when there the economic turning around.
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.
