I would not count Intel out. They have fought off competitive threats before and won. They have a ton of cash, some of the best engineering talent and great process technology. They feel severely threatened and they will be very focused on fixing this. It will be an exciting next few years.
I meant just what I said - a true consumer electronics device is not an open device. Notice you changed my words in deleting the word 'electronics' in the phrase 'consumer electronics'. Your router is open - what do you mean by that? How is your Droid phone open?
Next 24 months? is it too slow and late? I will have my iPad4 or iphone 6 by that time. 4-5 generation behind on product definition..... This is really bad. At least 2 generation process technology lead as compared to the whole foundries' offering, it still can't beat others' product offering. Intel should really think seriously what's wrong on its own product roadmap or overall strategy.
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.
