It's too bad Intel didn't spend that money they spent on McAfee building a couple of fabs to take advantage of the process lead that they have, and also, to beat back Samsung. IMHO it would have been better use of the money than to spend it buying a virus checker company. That one made no sense to me.
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.
