With production due mid-next year it seems this could turn out quite fine for Micron given that revenue return should begin soon (assuming uptick in demand) and a larger share of that revenue will be Micron's as they paid the bill.
Some pros and cons here. This could be really good for the industry since Intel apparently won't have first dibs on the output, while at the same time it means there may well be less bidding for the plants output.
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.
