On topic, it makes sense that Intel like many other large companies sees the writing on the wall, and responds to the growth of its market share portion in this geographical area.
Again the sheer numbers of China population and their upcoming logical progression and prosperity will brings demand in all forms of embedded CPU products, not just infotainment.
I guess few years back people would have told the same thing about tablet form factor.
BTW All-in-one PCs are already happening with x86, and few years down the line ARM/MIPS will surely occupy some of those sockets
Population of 1.3 billion people and a growing economy. There are also a lot of people in China who've never owned a PC. Both Gartner and IDC expect that PC shipments to China will surpass those to the U.S. either this year or next year.
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.
