Perhaps the off-air DTV signals in China will be more widely used than in the U.S., and makers of DTMB demods can achieve some success. Or perhaps China can mandate that the receivers be included in all new TV sets, as the U.S. did, and create a guaranteed market.
DTMB "territory" is relatively small. DVB-C is primarily used in Europe. The products will roughly serve 2/3 of the world market. Just by market size alone is attractive enough for investors. Yet, where are the competitors in this space?
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.
