I believe the Chinese market has matured significantly over recent years. They may be copying basic system architectures and look and feel, but these companies are doing SoC designs based on a range of ARM, MIPS and other IP licenses.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
