"This is about reinventing the PC, making it more of a consumer electronics device,"
Totally clueless! The PC can never be a true consumer electronics device because its open. Tinkering with CPUs does precisely zero to address this.
Double the pace of Moore's Law caught my eyes. With the new tri-gates, the low power Atom is expected. 15W seems high for mobile phone. Yet, it will be good for laptop and tablet. Typical consumers may choose GUI over the processing power and/ or power consumption. Will the low power Atom get an edge over ARM in the tablet market?
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.
