@selinz- I didn't see a breakdown by region, so you may be right that Cadence remains ahead of Zuken in North America. However, the data I saw did show Cadence falling off quite a bit in the past few years in PCB tools. This may or may not be related to Cadence's revenue model change, which has resulted in the company reporting significantly lower revenues generally.
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.
