Obviously not a well-read site since it is the 14th and no one has responded.
Might want to check with someone that actually designs this stuff, but the issue of leakage has been a problem for a while, and different gate technology will / should help with the ongoing problem of excessive power consumption due to leakage.
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.
