No, that is just a red herring. China had squeezed another 14.6 billions of dollars out of Taiwan 2010. Taiwan hard earned trade surplus in terms of foreign reserves had been depleted rapidly since the economic development agreement,ECFA, was signed in 2009. The blood sucking would not stopped until long after Taiwan dies pennyless. A tiny blood transfusion won't do much good to a terminally illed patient.
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.
