Very interesting to read about the historic adoption of Bluetooth and Wifi. Impressive to hear about TI's four radio solution. I wonder if the chip is expensive? however, I bet using this single chip has a definitive advantage over using a chip for each of the radios.
so it was... GPS, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and FM? nice.
Will we ever see Baseband integration or is that too much to ask for?
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.
