it was very strange, at the time of economic recession huge growth in high-end expensive car which effected growth at automotive electronics. Yet the real dragging effect was asian market where we saw huge leaps. China will be leading factor at automotive production/sales during following decade.
On the other hand we started to see lots of electical cars imminent, which means lots of semiconductor devices to be used. So i disagree with above assumption. %4 percent is real humble number. If petrol prices goes up more with current trend then for sure, electrical cars will be on focus more. We can easily talk about growth levels of %6 even %8 percent if recession effects would be overcome swiftly at EU&US
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.
