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
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.
