@Warren I don't see how this article can be interesting either. Their antifuse technology is based on standard logic CMOS process and thus, it's more about luck than any major technical breakthrough. To me, it serves purely for marketing purpose.
I find it interesting and I am sure many others who care about non-mainstream silicon devices also find it interesting. Yes you are right that this is half-news and half-marketing info, but the same can be said about most other EE-times articles about new products by any silicon vendor.
I'm wondering who is finding this news article interesting and how deeply?
Peter: This item almost feels like a corporate news release that as much doubles as free advertising, riding herd on the interest they expect news regarding the TSMC 28nm process will garner. Am I way off-base here?
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.
