Is this something to be scary about? As I remember it was predicted that the chip sales are going to slowdown in the last quarter of this year and early next year. I think 2011 can also be a bit bumpy. Any other opinion?
To @double-o-nothing...feast and famine has been a trademark of this commodity memory market as far as I remember (and I am not that young ;-)...major players always think the only way to survive is to increase the capacity as much as possible in good times and squeeze out smaller guys in bad times...this will continue until 2-3 global players remain standing...Kris
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.
