Agreed. The outlook for economy is uncertain and there is a wide disagreement between analysts how the semi market will do in 2011/2012. In that context one would expect almost half of the trends to be negative (company D is going under, technology G is not going to be deployed)...A star is born??? common...Kris
I use World Fab Forecast from SEMI which predicts 23% growth for 2011. They were the first in Oct 2007 to predict a double digit decline in 2008 and they were the first to predict a growth rate of more than 60% in Feb 2009 when all others were around 20%.
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.
