Thanks EE Times for the interesting topic. Controlling the electrical percolation threshold can also be done biologically by "binding of antigens to the antibodies, disrupt the network continuity causing increased resistance of the network," here is the link:
What would be neat (either in biologic or non-biologic versions) is to further control the conductivity dynamically either thru voltage or temperature bias.
Peter, programs for 2011 and 2012 have been posted (www.cmoset.com). We would be delighted if you can come to Whistler in 2011 or Vancouver in 2012, I will arrange registration waiver ($500 value)...Kris
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
