IBM, HP and Intel are all actively pursuing silicon photonics, but now younger company's like GigOptix are offering unique technologies too--all aimed at using light on- and between-chips. What would you bet that one of the big guys acquires GigOptix to boost its optical technology portfolio?
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
