not a big suprise, where most of the factories are out, many business units are gone where huge portion of money goes to cover up looses. 2010 s good for semiconductor market, either for NXP, if you talk to high manager but almost zero growth is not a success. Capacity constraint was big deal, let company to loose customers who needed promised parts on time.
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.
