Out of the quarterly Semi market ($75 to $80Billion for 2011), this roughly translates to $1.6B, still a small 2% market -it doesn't add up. I would have expected it to be higher than a meager 2% given the population and the growth rate of the economy. Further, a major portion of this market is in mobile devices and office automation, proving a point that a lot needs to happen in industrial and manufacturing markets.
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.
