Defining that by "mils" you mean "milli-inches" or "thou" / "thousandths of an inch" as it would normally be called in UK would potentially help some European readers.
I recently saw a UK engineer wondering about (old) 300 "mil" and 600 "mil" dual-inline packages. This person thought "mil" referred to millimetres, but when asked "how big would that be then?" soon saw the light. :)
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.
