My speculation--and it is just speculation--is that the total amount of wafers in these two deals combined on a good day with the wind at their backs is less than a drop in Intel's very big bucket. I suspect the foundry parts of the deals are incidental, not strategic. If Intel can help accelerate the development of better batteries, that is strategic.
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.
